[On his book A Guy's Guide to Being a Man's Man]
Frank Vincent: I had wanted to write a book for quite some time. I got together with my co-author Steven Priggé and we spoke about my career and the roles I've played on-screen. A lot of the tough guy characters I portrayed certainly had a man's man aura to them. Then, we met over lunch at Goodfellas restaurant in Garfield, New Jersey, and talked about the whole man's man concept for a book. As we were both leaving the restaurant a fan driving by in a van opened his window and yelled, "Frank Vincent you're the man!" We took it as a sign and started writing the next day.
