More About the Author

Jenna McCarthy is an internationally published writer, speaker, former radio personality and the author of several books including Pretty Much Screwed, the forthcoming Everything's Relative and 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.) Once she was officially "middle aged," [cringes] Jenna had no choice but to pen 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 so-written a middle grade fiction series (Maggie Malone and the Mostly Magical Boots) and has some fun children's picture books coming out soon, so stay tuned. Oh, and she gave a TED talk (more than three million views, baby!) that some people didn't hate.

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.

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!

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.

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'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!

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.

Oh my gosh this is the most hilarious book ever! I cannot stop laughing now at every annoying thing my husband does and each time he does his annoying things I am reminded of Jenna McCarthy's book. From snoring to snacking to hogging the remote, not knowing where toothpaste and toilet paper is kept in the house, THIS is the book for all married couples!

In fact, it's the perfect gift for anyone getting married, divorced, engaged. It's perfect for anniversaries. I'm getting all my married female relatives this book for the holidays. It seriously had me laughing out loud when I was reading it in bed. Good thing my husband was already asleep and snoring or else he might have asked me what I was laughing about. Oh, who am I kidding. He wouldn't have asked me that. He probably would have thought that since I was laughing I wanted to fool around. See, that's just another annoying thing guys do!

Get this book today and you will be a happier married person because it will help you understand that all men are idiots just because they are. Not because they mean to be! And they really do love us. They are just dumb idiots. And we should love them for all the stupid things they do!

Thanks Jenna for a hilarious eye-opening great book!

This book had me almost peeing myself I laughed so hard. I wish this were a trilogy. I was sitting in the waiting. Room at the doctors office and would just burst out laughing uncontrolably. I have a new favorite auther. I will read ALL of Jenna McArthys books. My husband would also like to thank her. He said this book saved our marriage becaue it proves all men are the same.
