Now, while I have neither a husband or children, there were a lot of moments where I found myself nodding along to something Dunn was writing about and before I knew it, I was reaching for a pen to write notes. I shared my other copy with my good friend, Amy who does indeed have a husband and two lovely kiddos (70% of the time by her own admission) and she said that this book completely changed her outlook and approaches with her family. From help with household chores, finding more ‘me’ time, and general happiness, I’ve seen Dunn’s book work wonders!           How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids is a humorous, heartfelt, and honest memoir/self-help book where Jancee Dunn describes how her marital dynamics changed with the arrival of their daughter. Rather than throwing in the dishtowel, Dunn made it her mission to seek out experts and therapists in a great attempt to save her marriage and, in the process, once again find the man she fell in love with. During one of her ‘me’ times Amy and I were discussing how after reading the book, we felt that Jancee had become a very good friend and her book seemed to be speaking directly to us about so many things.           This is truly a book for everyone! Dunn is able to relate her firsthand experiences with such wit and wisdom that you’ll be simultaneously making mental notes and laughing out loud.
