Book Review: The Desperate Dad's Guide to Getting Some by Jackie Papandrew

The Desperate Dad's Guide to Getting SomeIn The Desperate Dad's Guide to Getting Some & Other Tales from a Slightly Soiled Marriage the author, humour columnist and contributor to several books including Chicken Soup for the Soul, has provided a short book that women will laugh at and men might finding a revelation.

With chapters including High-Maintenance Woman & Did I Shave My Legs For This? the reader is treated to a comic look at the difference between men and women. Her husband Greg provides plenty of material, but some of the scenarios are so familiar she could have been a fly on the wall at my place. The cutlery rattling Silverware Slam and the argument ending Fine rung particular bells. There is one chapter that might benefit from a little change of phrase for the UK market - fanny doesn't mean bottom to most Brits!

This was a quick fun read full of silly anecdotes that had me smiling along.
