This little book is hilarious! I bought it when it first came out several years ago, and loved it so much, I bought 2 more for a couple of my friends. I still keep it in my bedside table, so I can pull it out and laugh all over again! Never gets old! I highly recommend this book. You will not be able to put it down! Makes a great gift!

I found this book to be both entertaining and enlightening! Sarah Wells writes with a wry wit but underneath the humor is much to learn!

I have owned this book for years and have probably purchased a dozen copies for friends. I laugh aloud every time I read it. The two women who wrote it are genius and they must have been laughing like crazy as they wrote this book. So so so funny!!!

Truly one of the funniest books I have read in a long time. If you are bitter and cynical then this is one book you absolutely can not be without.
