About the Author

Jenna McCarthy is the author of five books, including The Parent Trip: From High Heels and Parties to Highchairs and Potties and Cheers to the New Mom!/Cheers to the New Dad!. A self- confessed social media addict, she blogs regularly for iVillage, Betty Confidential, and many others. She lives in Santa Barbara, California.

More About the Author

Jenna McCarthy is an internationally published writer, former radio personality and the author of several books including If It Was Easy They'd Call the Whole Damn Thing a Honeymoon: Living with and Loving the TV-Addicted, Sex-Obsessed, Not-So-Handy Man You Married. (Please note that it says the blah-blah-blah man YOU married, not the one she married. Her husband likes it when she points that out.) Now that she's "middle aged," [cringes] Jenna had no choice but to pen the upcoming I've Still Got It... I Just Can't Remember Where I Put It: Awkwardly True Tales from the Far Side of Forty. At least, she THINKS that's the title.

She's also got some fun children's picture books AND some middle grade fiction coming out soon, so stay tuned.

Over the years Jenna's byline has appeared in Allure, Cosmo, Glamour, Ladies' Home Journal, Real Simple, Self, Shape and dozens of other magazines and several anthologies. She collects hats, speaks really bad French, and is positive she'd be a tennis star if the net didn't keep getting in the way. Oh and she once gave a TED talk that some people didn't hate.

First of all, read this FUNNY book!

I cannot speak for you, but I know as I read the book I spent most of my time nodding my head and saying things like "preach it sister".

I recommend this book to all married women!

Format: Paperback
This is a great read for any woman who is married, was married, or plans to be married. It is an honest discussion of the marital dynamic, and while there is plenty of husband bashing, the tone is that we should love our husbands for what they are and let go of what they are not. The book is full of laugh-out-loud moments but at the heart this book is a love story to those not-so-perfect men with whom we choose to share our lives. It was thought provoking, inspiring and most of all, a HUGE relief to know there are husbands out there worse than my own. Pick it up today - you will not be disappointed!

Jenna McCarthy is fearless. She says what every married woman at some point thinks (or whispers to her bff after 3 glasses of wine). This book is for all women interested in a side-splitting good time and a healthy dose of perspective to go along with it. My favorite are the "At Least You're Not Married to Him" bits where Jenna shares these hilarious and sometimes unbelievable stories from real women that make you go, "Yeah, I guess I've got it pretty good after all." This book should be made into a television series! And when it is, it will be my favorite!

A hysterically funny, very engaging and reassuring book about the realities of being married to a good man. Refresing in that it acknowledges gender differences without the usual over-the-top male bashing. You can love your good man and read this book without feeling like you're betraying him...ha!

I have laughed and laughed through the entire book. I would have to mark certain passages because they definitely needed to be read out loud to my husband and the two of us would get a huge laugh. I guess you could call it a "bonding experience" for both of us. These topics are so universal to the state of matrimony and the author treats them with such honesty so as to let us see ourselves with a touch of humor. Next time my husband can't find the milk in the refrigerator I will just chuckle to myself thinking of Jenna and Joe.

This book was a funny and relaxing read and yet if one is honest with themselves there are actually parts of the book that will really hit home in a funny way. Couldn't hardly put it down.

...or the marriage rate will plunge to near zero.

Jenna McCarthy has nailed all the infuriating and hilarious aspects of marriage. Not my marriage, which is perfect (right, Hubby?). But she cleverly describes all those OTHER marriages.

Chapter One (Can We Talk? Obviously Not) alone is worth the price of the book. Jenna writes, "My husband holds on to his words as if they're hundred-dollar bills and he's hovering on the brink of bankruptcy" and "My listening-impaired husband doesn't want a story; he wants an answer." Right on! Er...I mean...I'm assuming that's how it is in some marriages.

Jenna is a comedy genius. Don't pass up the chance to read this gem of a book. You'll love it.

I'm over half way through Jenna Mccarthy's new book. What have I learned so far??? I have the best damn husband in the whole wide world. He cleans, he cooks (sometimes), he is ever present in our children's lives, he works hard and there is not one thing about him that I would change (or exchange in that Texas sized bowl).
This book has made me appreciate my husband and love him even more than I already do and I am only 1/2 way thorough the book. Can you say "PUT THIS BOOK ON YOUR MUST READ LIST". Hell yeah!

My husband saw all of the great reviews for this book, and bought it for me because he thought I would enjoy it. After 3 chapters I had not laughed/chuckled/smiled once. From what I read, the book seems to boil down to "husbands like to go fishing and wives like purses; wives like to talk, husbands don't; etc." There was actually a paragraph warning me to not treat my husband "like one of the chicks." The whole thing was, actually, a little insulting - perhaps I'm not a walking stereotype?

If there is one word to describe this book it's cliched. If that's your thing, go for it, but I was hoping to hear something new, and not the same things I've heard too many times.

Don't get me wrong, I truly wanted to laugh my butt off at this book, but this book certainly wasn't doing it for me. If you're interested in laughing, go read Bossy Pants or a David Sedaris book or something.
