"Hilarious, smart, and utterly addicting. Watch out, Nora Ephron." -Valerie Frankel

Jenna McCarthy presents an uproarious but insightful peek behind the curtains at the unholy state of matrimony. With ballsy wit and bawdy humor, she explores everything from male domestic idiocy and the frustrating misfires in spousal communication to how to stay true to the peskiest of vows: forsaking all others . Part in-your-face guide, part brutal confession, this book is a must-read manifesto on surviving marriage in an age when everyone seems to live forever and getting a divorce is as easy as ordering a latte.

Definitely not an actual self-help book, but it did achieve its main conceit: reminding me I made a healthy, sane choice for a significant other. McCarthy's foibles were sometimes common ground, but more often than not mildly annoying and her husband's quirks much the same. The pace is quick, the chapters short, and still I skipped over bits. Your mileage will vary, but it's a fast read and made me grin.

Marriage is hard. Marriage is weird. But marriage can be amazing, even in the moments of weirdness. Reading McCarthy's book was like sitting around with your closest girlfriend and dishing about your husbands. Her book is a quick, entertaining read that helps put into perspective that all marriages are odd. And each person in the couple has habits that will try to drive the other insane but in the end, if you can find some common ground (or at least compromise) you can be successful in your relationship.

I haven't read this book, but it's probably pretty funny.

First let me say, most of annoying habits Jenna talks about do not apply to my husband. However, the anecdotes were funny none the less.
