Where is the Zero star? A friend of mine (now questioning that friendship) bought this last night and couldn't finish it due to the poor writing style of the author and the fact she has been married for 9 years. She brought it to me today to see what my thoughts were. I read the first chapter and just could not finish. I honestly don't understand how she could have received backing from a publisher to write such drivel. I am not a fan of housewives shows, and this poor excuse of a book just solidifies my opinion of "reality stars". By reality stars, of course I mean fame whores. Don't waste your money. If you honestly want marriage advice, my suggestion would be to seek professional counseling, or buy a book from an expert in the field...who has been married a minimum of 25 years. This garbage would set the woman's movement back 40 years...if it were taken seriously.

You want some essential newly wed advice from this fabulous book? POOP!!!! Yes, poop. Apparently you aren't supposed to let your husband know you do it, nor are you supposed to let him know you grow hair on your legs and armpits. Human women are so last year! Why have a breathing female when you can have a fake one, right Melissa Gorga? Don't forget not to poop!

This is the most ridiculous book I have ever read. What a waste of money. Even one star is one too many

I've been married 26 years to an Italian man so I was intrigued by the title of the book.  But then I read the excerpt and was greatly disappointed.  If this excerpt is any indication of how the rest of the book reads, I would not recommend wasting your money.  Very poorly written.

I wish I could unread it. I have never "quit" on a book before, but I just can't with this one--I made it, albeit laboriously, to the fourth chapter. I've had my Nook for 4 years and for the first time, I deleted a book. I thought it might be poorly written, but I hoped to see some insight into Gorga's life that would help me understand who she is and why. Unfortunately, she talks in monosyllabic circles and the book seems more of a vendetta against people who have wronged her with a little "have sluttly sex with your husband and make sure he doesn't know you poop" thrown in.

Dumb book written by a dumb woman.  This book is all about her.  Thank you, Jesus, that I didn't pay for it.  Melissa Gorga is not a relationship expert.  She is one woman in the beginning of a marriage, and it seems like she cheated on him anyway.  Do not take her advice.  She is an ape.  Buy a book written by an expert or ask your grandma what made her marriage last for 30+ years.

Melissa Gorga's 'advice' is worth less than the crayon this was written with . How embarrassing for her .

If you are looking for an advice book about marriage then this is NOT the one. This book is more of an autobiography is ALL about her and how great she thinks she is. Things don't make sense, poorly written and a waste of money. Also Im not a big fan of all the brand name talk,  about her 7 bathrooms, and rolex watches, Range Rovers, Jimmy Choo shoes etc. Again don't waste your time if you are actually looking for some kind of marriage advice. St. Martin Press should be ashamed for publishing such book instead of giving real writers and authors a chance.

Is it normal for a book that has just been released to already be discounted?  Based on what I have read here in the comments and in the excerpt, I guess I am not surprised.  It seems to be poorly written and I am not too keen on taking marriage advice for someone who has been married such a short time.

LOVE MISOGYNIST STYLE- A poorly written memoir/advice book written by Melissa Gorga, a Z list Bravo celebrity. Dated, hackneyed advice about being a Lady In the Parlor, Cook in the Kitchen, and a Puttana in the bedroom. Speaking of which, there's nothing authentically Italian in this book. Becoming a doormat to save your marriage is a trait I don't normally associate with being Italian, but whatever can sell this drivel. Also, believe the hype about these two morons advocating marital rape. It's in the book.

This book should be removed from the shelves. It's disturbing that this is considered an advice book as it promotes both mental and verbal abuse in additional to marriage rape. Susan B. Anthony must be rolling over in her grave right now as this book sets woman back fifty years. This book suggests that if a woman is does not have dinner made or puts on a few pounds, her husband will cheat on her.

Worst book I've ever read in my life.  I borrowed it from someone who wanted to throw it out.   Now I will complete that process.

I'm Italian and have never seen the Housewives show. The book was a letdown - I didn't realized they've only been married 9 years! I had a hard time connecting with it. I thought it woudl be good beach read, but it's pretty dull and poorly worded.

What a stupid book, this is not about marriage?!! 9 years of marriage and her own husband is not on the cover?!! this is sad and I'm pissed that I read this useless book.

This is the worst book I ever read in my life. I cannot believe anyone would publish such garbage. No one can write an marriage advice book after 8 years of marriage. It is very poorly written. Save your money. I could not get passed the second chapter!!!!

Poorly written, very difficult to follow - was there no editor involved? In addition, she contradicts herself throughout. She also sets women back about 100 years with her "advice". A hot and healthy marriage is based on more than date nights, having meals ready, shaving....Just...don't waste your money on this.

I have been married for 22 years..and he knows I poop.. I actually enjoy watching the housewives shows because it amuses me that rich people create such ridiclous drama. It makes me feel better. This book was SO not worth it. Maybe she should use some of that shoe money on English or writing classes

The woman advocates marital rape. Why would anyone...ANYONE...advocate that. She literally tells men that we want to be dominated, that we want to have our hair pulled, etc. etc. If we say No, then he is to turn us around and rip our clothes off. Worst marital advice and I honestly believe the publisher should have this removed from the bookshelves.

I'm so disturbed people are focusing on the poor-quality rather than the fact her husband is an abuser. This man literally advocates raping your wife. Quote: "If your wife says "no," turn her around, and rip her clothes off." I am disgusted B&N describe this man as "lovable". He throws furniture in restaurants? He broke his own child's highchair because he was angry?! This man needs anger management, at the very least. He is a classic example of an abuser.
