    So funny

    I highly recommend this book. I think it should be required reading for all 20 year-old girls.

    Womensselfesteem.com's review...

    In......I DON'T CARE about YOUR BAND, using her clever wit, Julie Klausner dares to share her trials and tribulations which she endured throughout her relationships. She manages to challenge several self-help resources through her minagerie of sexual experiences & pitfalls with some very diverse characters~ This book reveals more than just vague accounts of ones personal life. In Julie's words you will read..'What I learned from Indie Rockers, Trust FUnders, Pornographers, Felons, Faux Sensitive Hipsters and other guys I've dated'.
    Womensselfesteem.com highly recommends: 'I DON'T CARE about YOUR BAND' as a refreshing and very rare read, not only is it humorous, and raw, it even tends to be somewhat of an educating journey. A journey that rolls and turns unexpectedly like a rollercoaster as you ride through the chapters of this oh so matter-of-fact memoir written by Julie Klausner.

    I seem like a 5 star addict but...

    She did her mama proud. I don't know her personaly of course but the book is a good guide of what it feels like to date in the modern world. A good read for anyone in, out or in between relationships who can't see the humor in humanity. Funny, I happened on this when I went to B&N to pick up my ordered copy of "How to Survive the Loss of a Love". There are many funny ancedotes that she's given me to remember but I'm loving the fact I know that "My vagina is an idiot" and "but you shine brighter". One of those has a dog ear on the page.

    Learning from Mistakes

    I thought this was a thoroughly entertaining book. It was witty, honest, and hopefully cathartic for the author. I know it made me feel good, as a lesbian, in a schadenfreudish kind of way, because most of the guys in the book were jerks. Although slap a nose ring and a tongue piercing on Allistair, and Klausner could have been describing one of my hippie ex-girlfriends. I noticed several one or two-star reviews of this book which said things like, "Julie Klausner dates a lot of losers." To those people I want to point out that the author tells us in the first pages of the book: "What follows in this book are selective stories of guys who came on strong, then sputtered out...." The key phrase here is "selective." That is, she wrote about the bad ones, not every single man she dated (I am holding myself back from typing `moron' but, oops, too late. Tourettes typing at work again.) Other commenters complain "it's not funny, I thought it would be funny." I don't know what sort of cartoon character lives these people live, but stories based on life experiences are very rarely a series of comic monologues. I laughed aloud and often while reading, and I was thoroughly amused throughout. Finally, to anyone who has never dated a loser, congratulations, but too bad for you. Most of us do not go into relationships with a laundry list of exactly what we want in another person. And even if we did have such a list, good luck in trying to impose your will upon another human being. I think it is much easier to discover what we are looking for and how we want to be treated by recognizing what we absolutely do not want and will no longer tolerate. This is the happy ending of the book, and of most of our mature lives.

    Fantastic read for this single gal in her late twenties!

    Julie Klausner did a great job roping me in with her frank and honest stories of her dating exploits. I could personally relate to her attitude and experiences which, as intended, made me feel good reading it. I felt like "wow, so this isn't just me that has dealt with this before!" It also reaffirms the attitude that you just have to laugh about the good and the bad and just keep on trucking in Life and maybe next time, you'll get it right. I am glad I invested my time to read this and will recommend it to my girlfriends for sure!

    I Also Recommend:

    Big Deal

    When I purchased this book, I wasn't sure if it was a tell-all, cautionary tale or advice book. The title infers it is both naughty and funny. This book is none of those things. There are brief appearances of these elements and some of the language is crafted only for the shock value but all-in-all, I can't really tell you what this book is about other than that the author slept with a lot of jerks. Big deal. I admire Ms. Klausner's brutal honesty but recommend reading Carrie Fisher's latest book instead.
