Reading Heimel is like listening to a standup comic. Her delivery is snappy with zinger after zinger; her topics are contemporary and her language is hip. Author of Sex Tips for Girls ( LJ 6/15/83) and But Enough About You (S. & S., 1986), Heimel writes about codependency, PMS, and the eternal conflict between men and women. Her humor is cutting, and her language, to put it mildly, is strong. For these reasons, she may have less of a broad appeal than Erma Bombeck. Still, her spoofs of the modern human condition are right on target, so this is a book to consider carefully. Libraries that already have her other books may want this one as well.
