I read about half of this book sitting in the lobby of a garage waiting for them to replace my tires. They kept coming out and asking me if I had time for this or that extra service, and I said , "yes, I had aaallll the time in the world" to keep reading. From her litany of needs, to her catalog of flaws, and her opinions on everything else - she had me screaming laughter and wondering HOW SHE GOT IN MY HEAD. You can't read it without falling in love with her fabulous, messy person. Parts are heart breaking, but it's mostly hilarious. A must read for any woman!

Made me laugh out loud!  Irby is a smart, talented, writer whose life experiences have given her a genuiness that few people have.  After reading the book, she's somebody you wish you could be friends with.  Loved the book!
