There was only one quote per page and I read the whole book in 8 minutes flat!
Yvonne
The "secrets" are mainly just a list of the most negative thoughts the authors could get these women to admit having.
Kelsey
The authors have done another good job of making us feel less alone and not judged.

I read an ad for this in a parenting magazine. I think they put all of the funny parts in the ad. I ordered this online and was shocked when I saw there was only one sentence per page. I read the whole book in 10 minutes.
There were many "confessions" that had nothing to do with being a mom. I guess I just think if I spend $10 on a book it should last more than 10 minutes.

At one sentence per page, this book is a waste of money, even at Amazon's prices for hardcover. It took less than 5 minutes to read the whole thing. If the paperback comes out at less than $4, it might be entertaining enough to buy. I found the "secrets" to be rather silly as well. It wasn't humorous enough to recommend.

The idea was great, and much needed. Mothers everywhere are struggling to be perfect and could benefit from realizing they are not alone in cutting corners and feeling frustrated. This book gets the message across, but with only a line or two on each page you are finished in less than half an hour and left thinking they barely scratched the surface. The whole book would hardly fill an average magazine article. I wish they'd done more, I wish we could have heard more stories and anecdotes and felt like we had something to relate to, instead of something just fluffy and cute and insubstantial. A good idea that didn't go nearly far enough to satisfy and not anywhere near enough material to justify the cost of the book.

What a fun, light, uplifting read - great Mother's Day gift! Every woman can hear herself in the voices of these women. It reminds us not to take ourselves too seriously and enjoy life in the moment. Take it to your next car pool line, doctor visit, or bathroom trip!

I was under the impression there would be stories to go with the little secrets......wrong! It took me 15 minutes to read the entire book. They should tell you there are one liners per page. Waste of my money....very disappointing........don't make the same mistake I made!

Wife and I got this as a gift for a friend / expecting mother, but admittedly as new parents ourselves, we flipped through it first too. Some of the quips were almost sad and scary, but overall, we laughed our heads off. This was confirmed by the mom-to-be we gave it to. This will go on our list of gifts for expecting-and-new moms. It's good as a source of "relaxation" for anyone unsure of what they've just gotten themselves into and some of the feelings they might be having. Moreso, it's just downright funny.
