    Very fun and entertaining read.

    This series kicks literary ass. 104 pages light swearing I think but I could be wrong and there was none. My fav story was the last and now I'm sad because I've read the entire series and I want more. I was not given a copy to review, bastards made me buy my own. ~~Seahag

    It seems that men and women truly tend to take each other much more seriously in today's society, and gender stereotypes are considered rather dangerous. This means that poking fun at gender differences and tendencies is generally frowned upon. This book was indeed a refreshing read because it does the unthinkable--makes fun of the typical white husband in the typical suburban household. The collection of short stories was quite an easy, enjoyable read. It was nice to see men who weren't afraid to act like "real men." It is almost a throw-back to the old sitcoms that depict the husband as dumb, lazy, and ruled by logic. Indeed this is satire at its finest. My favorite story was the first about the grocery store because it is exactly what men do in that situation! And the book is enriched by having a male author. It is more acceptable to have a man make fun of himself.




    I will say that the profanity did somewhat ruin the book for me. Now, don't get me wrong. I get it--guys do tend to use more colorful language than men. And I did not mark the book down for this. All I am saying is that I prefer to read that the character swore or used an expletive rather than reading what was said. I also found that my interest began to wane somewhat towards the end. I think that the book is meant to read as several short stories at random times. In other words, should you decide to read the book, don't read it in one sitting. I took great delight in every story with the exception of the last. It was a little lengthier than the others, and I believe I would have engaged with the story more if it had been shorter.




    Notwithstanding, I can recommend this book to most of you out there. It is the perfect respite and change of scene for those of you who wish to read something a little different. But I don't know how many men would enjoy reading it, but I can assure you women would!




    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
