    Bathroom Book

    This lighthearted look at whining and the cure(s) for it, is my idea of a terrific bathroom book! Let me explain. A bathroom book is one that I pick up and put down on a daily basis while I'm in a fixed seated position. (I'm trying to be delicate, here.) Each whine is discussed and the cure for it is offered within one page. Therefore, one page could be read, and the book put down, or if you have more time, you could read on.<BR/><BR/>Each whine is placed into one of the top ten categories. Some are serious whines with serious suggestions, while others are quite funny. To paraphrase, when a child whines "He's <i>still</i> looking at me" make them both wear sunglasses. I chuckled as I read this one. Who knows? It <i>could</i> work.<BR/><BR/>There are definitions when needed: "Mother-in-law: A woman who destroys her son- and daughter-in-law's peace of mind by giving them a piece of hers."<BR/><BR/>Amusing celebrity quotes are included. I like books that give me cause to chuckle.

    Incredible witty and insightful

    I was fortunate enough to get this book pre release at a book trade show. The title caught my eye and January was gracious enough to sign it for me. This book is endlessly entertaining as well as spot on accurate. There were so many examples that I related to and could identify with. I know I will be recommending this book to many people I know 'some whiners and some just married to whiners'. If you need a gift for someone who is hard to please, this is definitely it.

    Great book. Light read with lots of laughs about everyday life. I was hard pressed not to see much of myself and those I love throughout the book. Great gift book.
