Review

I am absolutely convinced that, were I born female, Kelly's book would describe me to a T...it's as if she's my alter-ego hogging both X chromosomes! There are so many similarities...from nicknames (Smelly Kelly vs. Thomas' English Muffins), to the need for glasses (she was blessed earlier than I...but I didn't escape high-school without them), to stories of the Prom, Kelly's stories are heartfelt, hilarious, and totally believable.

LOVE this book! And so will you!!!!!  ---Tom Harvey author of The Eighties: A Bitchen Time To Be a Teenager and Don't Fight With the Garden Hose and Other Lessons I've Learned Along the Way.

As an avid reader and fellow author, I have always believed that it is a sign of true talent when a writer can make you laugh out loud or quietly weep as your read their words. Kelly Coleman Potter's book, Four Eyes Were Never Better Than Two, made me laugh and also tugged at my heart strings for the little girl who grew into a woman whose self-depricating humor makes her real, raw and honest. Bravo Kelly, Keep up the great work! - Melissa Collier, turning 44 ...living beyond his years       

About the Author

Kelly Coleman Potter is the author of "Off-Kelter," a weekly humor column that ran in print for ten years, and two books - A Little Off-Kelter...the parenting years, Four Eyes Were Never Better Than Two...and other observations. Potter began writing at a very young age - about as soon as she could hold a pencil and form words. She's a professional kid wrangler, having successfully raised two sons into adulthood who are both members of the world's greatest Navy. Her hobbies used to include ranting, "You kids are going to drive me to drinking," and collecting loose change in parking lots and couch cushions for her lobotomy fund. Now, they include writing, bragging about her handsome sailor sons, and hanging out with her four dogs. Potter is married to her husband of twenty-three years and resides somewhere in the cornfields of Indiana. She still never passes up a nickel laying on the ground because the lobotomy is never totally out of the question.

Kelly once again brings me back to my childhood.....letting me know that I must have had a "normal" childhood if she experienced the same things too! I like to read before bedtime just to wind down for the day, can't be put to sleep by Kelly's books because I am laughing too hard!

I have not enjoyed a book this much in a very long time. I feel like I'm having flashbacks to my youth as the author and I share many embarrassing life events in common.

There were so many times while reading this book that my husband asked me what was so funny....I just pointed to my kindle...because I couldn't speak from laughing so much. I was a little sad when I came to the last page...I've had such a wonderful time reminiscing with an old friend...at least that's what it felt like for me.

I adored this book! Hilarious, witty, and charming. It was a struggle to put the book down. Kelly provides a delightful, if sometimes humorously painful, walk down memory lane. How I can relate! It felt like she was sitting in my living room swapping childhood (and childrearing) stories.

I would truly love to give this book the 5-star, A-grade its stories and humor deserve. Really, I would. The English teacher in me, however, just can't overlook the need for proofreading. With a little polishing, this will be a 6-star winner!

I just finished this book over the weekend and wow yet again I laughed and got a bit teary eyed. Kelly has a way with words and she definitely hit a home run with this book, I highly recommend it to anyone who has ever gone through a hard time growing up or maybe has a kid who is having a hard time, this one will bring home the reality of coming of age. Again Kelly is amazing and I can't wait to read her next book.

This collection of columns provides a truly entertaining and often hilarious take on what it means to be a daughter, sister, wife, mother and writer. Her self-deprecating humor and clever wit make this collection of real-life stories the kind of read you will want to share with friends and revisit often. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading "The Devil Drove a Station Wagon!"
