Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Readers preparing to meet their in-laws for the first time or trying to coexist with a "monster-in-law" have come to the right place. After interviewing hundreds of couples across the country, certified life coach Syrtash assembled the best tips and advice for dealing with everything from navigating the wedding and understanding cultural diversity to surviving the holidays and spoiling grandchildren. The book's format of short, first-person narratives organized by specific categories lends to its readability and usefulness. No other book covers the territory in quite this way. Recommended for all libraries.
