What do you get when a Seinfeld writer marries and Ob/Gyn? A doctor with a funny delivery. Actually lots of funny deliveries. Marc Jaffe's job was coming up with hysterical stories for Seinfeld, but nothing was funnier than the stories his gynecologist wife would tell. So, he decided to write this laugh-a-page book about life married to an Ob/Gyn. It includes all the crazy stories his wife tells about- comical incidents of gynecologic and obstetric intrigue. While sleeping with your gynecologist would be wrong, reading Sleeping With Your Gynecologist is very right.

As an Ob/Gyn myself I couldn't help but laught at this book. It was like Jaffe had been living with my husband and me for the past 20 years. Everything he talks about is so right on the money. I wasn't sure if patients would enjoy it as much, but I had a few come in the office and show me the book, telling me how much they laughed. Now I've been recommending it to all my patients. It's a great chance for them to see what us docs really go through. Whatever side of the stirrups you're on, you'll love this book.
This was the perfect book to read while I was in the hospital with complications from my pregnancy. Jaffe has a keen sense of humor and treats his potentialy touchy subject matter with the perfect lightheartedness. If you can't laugh at this book you can't laugh at yourself.
Jaffe is able to capture a slice of human life. There is humor all around us and it takes insight and creativity to draw it out of everyday life. Jaffe is pure genius! I would recommend this book to my mother-in-law.
The book is simply not funny at all! I have to admit, I am looking forward to Mr.Jaffe's proctologist to write his 'tell all' book.

While sleeping with your gynecologist would be wrong, reading SLEEPING WITH YOUR GYNECOLOGIST is very right. Here's what a few famous people had to say: PAUL REISER - 'Marc is a very funny writer. I laughed till it hurt. And then I stopped. Because who wants to be in pain from a book? But as soon as the pain subsided I jumped back in and read some more. You try. But for God's sake, don't hurt yourself.' DENNIS MILLER - 'Jaffe is a laugh riot and he needs to be stepped on hard by Mayor Daley's men.' BOB SAGET - 'I read everything Marc Jaffe writes. I couln't put this book down. I was naked and needed to cover up with something.'
