    don't take life too seriously

    i would hope that if one were to purchase this book one would know and understand who amy sedaris is and expect, as i did, a fun, quirky guide to entertaining. so, if you want advice from martha stewart download a great martha stewart instructional but if you wanna learn how to not take life too seriously, then download 'i like you'...it's fun!

    Funny! (but very adult)

    I really like her sense of humor and thought this was hilarious at first glance. There is very good advice for overnight guests like: 'stay somewhere else', or 'don't bring things that need to be buried'. And the advice for dropping by unannounced is not only humourous, it is spot on. But the casual references to drug abuse are a little depressing: the herion/cocaine salt and pepper shakers cross that little line. As did calling recovering abusers boring. There's also an explicit sketch of her bent over examining her nether-regions. (However the thought of my sons sneaking the cookbook up to their bedrooms for a peek--that juxtaposition cracks me up). I gave it a 4, but I wouldn't recommend it if you have kids. Alcohol and drug abuse, no matter how hard you try, just isn't funny.

    the ultimate guide to hosting

    Entertaining with a twist. Not only is this book funny, there are actually recipes and usable ideas for hosting. Some of it is just for fun! Amy has a quirky sense of humor that is infectious. Reading this book feels like stepping into her home. I have my own copy and have given it as gifts also.

    Funny, strange, and cute, just like Amy!

    This is a great, slightly dirty, yet practical guide to entertaining. For fans of Strangers with Candy and anyone with a flair for entertaining. Amy is Martha Stewart on a muscle relaxer.
