How can I use man with special title ?

When I use man to see the usage, I want the result only appears the description. How can I do that? e.g. $man objdump

I'm not sure I understand you question. Are you saying you want to skip everything before the description?

If so, this works, although you loose the bold formatting:

man objdump | sed -n /DESCRIP/,\$p | less
