    Cynical, Scathing Lines from Burnt-Out Relationships

    I was disappointed in this book. The title led me to expect heart-warming humor about love. Instead, what I got was mostly a series of cynical perspectives on infatuation gone wrong. As in some other New Yorker cartoon collections, this one also lacks an integrating essay. The drawings are often good, but the lines make these cartoons. I have included some to give you a flavor of the volume. If you are getting over a soured relationship, this book may help you to brighten up a bit. Older man, asleep in front of television set. Wife calls. 'Yoo-hoo. Time to climb the stairway to paradise.' Woman holding hands with Count Dracula look-alike, addressing an older couple (presumably her parents). 'I know. But I think I can change him.' Young man to girl friend's parents in their living room. 'Mr. and Mrs. Ackerman, I'll come to the point. I'm deeply in love . . . and I'd like to move in . . . .' Couple reading sedately in bed. 'Why, you're right. Tonigh isn't reading night, tonight is sex night.' Man on telephone. '. . . I'm . . . madly in love with you . . . can't eat . . . can't sleep . . . can't live without you. But that's not why I called.' Unhappy older couple in marriage counsellor's office. Man says. 'No heroic measures.' Woman to female friend about man in next room. 'I've got him right where I want him, not that I don't want him.' Is there someone else, Narcissus?' Couple in living room. 'Well, who made the magic go out of our marriage -- you or me?' You get the idea. The best advice I ever got about love was to plan to give far more than I planned to receive after marrying. That would mean that each of us would receive a sense of being appreciated that would allow our love to build. And it worked. When you are falling in love, I suggest that you both go through Relationship Rescue and The Relationship Rescue Workbook together. If you do that, you probably won't ever need them later on because your relationship won't need rescuing. Give and look for the best!

    Too Cute!!!

    This is something I bought to give to my sister for her and her husband's anniversary and I just love it. They love fun to read coffee table books. This is great if you like cartoons, or just plane romance (and comedy)
