Book Description

"Is It Just Me? or Is Everyone a Little Nuts!" offers a laugh out loud look at parenting, marriage, aging and small town living from an suburban point of view.

Written in short chapters, Coltman retells everyday life events, conversations and stories infused with her skewed sense of humor. These small snippets of life are moments in which anyone can identify and laugh at themselves as well. Middle age can be boring, but Coltman allows the naughty into her life from time to time, like her adult Scout Troop, "Cougar Scouts" Troop 69, or conversations between her middle aged self and her seventeen year old self that will leave you rolling ( and remembering!) A great quick read!!

*Includes a small excerpt of the author's mystery/suspense In The Name of The Father at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, witty, insightful , fun little book. August 19, 2010
By Lisa S
Format:Kindle Edition
Just spent the day laughing, smiling, tearing up, and thoroughly enjoying every moment of this book.
Coltman shares her endearing, humorous slant on the most normal life situations we all experience. You will see yourself, your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers in the characters she brings to life and it will simply make you smile when you recognize them. A must read, especially when life gets a bit too serious. I will be sharing this book with everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Left me wanting more September 4, 2010
Format:Paperback
I read this enjoyable book straight through the very evening I received it with my daughter repeatedly asking me why I was laughing out loud. So that's the good (hilarious) and the bad (a bit short). Her observations of small town life are accurate and hysterical at the same time. If you are from a small town you will recognize your friends and acquaintances; if you are a city dweller or suburbanite Judi will introduce you to small town living. And what's the negative? It's just too short. I know there are lots more stories for her to tell and can hardly wait to read them. I'd love to read what happened at home when she realized Moondoggy purchased 15 boxes of Girl Scout cookies from a single girl when everyone knows in a small town that you buy just a few boxes from each because you can't say, "No." to any of the girls if you buy from one. My daughter was disappointed that on future cookie sales, we always encountered Judi at the door. As a disclaimer, I should note that I moved to the same small town as Judi just a year after she arrived and have known her at least as long as when our oldest sons started school. I had to buy the book because I've always enjoyed her letters to the editor and more recently, her blog. Keep the stories coming, Judi.

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny, great for the 30 and 40-something ladies January 22, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an odd little book, but good for what it is. While it was, as promised, funny in places, I think it may have fell flat too often in others. While I don't think this was really the fault of the author, she obviously has quite the sense of humor, it can probably be attributed to the fact that we weren't let in on some of the details. I really felt disconnected from the places and people in the story. While I realize this was a collection of short stories, I think they lacked the needed set up in many places. It really could have used a bit of polishing up by a complete stranger, perhaps.

That's not to say that the stories that did make me laugh weren't absolutely hilarious. It really made me want to sit down with the author over a cup of coffee and just chat and joke around. Her writing shows that she's just as likable as she is humorous. The best example of this comes in Chapter 24. You see, our dear Ms. Judi likes to completely and utterly mortify her children. I like that. I love that. I'm totally doing it to my kid.

Overall, this a good read, the funny and fully-described stories make it extraordinarily laugh-worthy. While I mention the flat stories, I don't think it devalues the book too awful much. And hey, maybe I just don't have the sense of humor I thought I had.

Recommended for the 30 and 40-something women friends. I could see my friends and I reading parts of this together and not only identifying but adding our own humorous tales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Downright funny! January 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Totally unpretentious and downright funny, this book is a collection of all the things that happen to you every day; things you wish you could remember because they are so hilarious. Not weird, or sci-fi, or fantasy, or mystery, or romance, just funny everyday things that are the very substance of our lives. You will learn a lot about yourself and a lot about Judi Coltman when you read this one.

Next time you're standing in the 20 item express line at the grocery store and the guy in front of you has 100 items and says, "These 80 cans of the same soup count as one, right?" tell him to buy Judi Coltman's "Is it Just Me? Or Is Everyone a Little Nuts!"

It's funny!

1.0 out of 5 stars It wasn't worth the $0.00 I paid for it. February 3, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Only three times in my life have I found myself unable to finish a book; this book was the third. A few chapters in, I had yet to crack a smile, let alone actually laugh. I might have been able to slog through it just to do it, if not for the egregious grammar errors repeated throughout. Any so-called author with no grasp of the apostrophe and plural versus possession has no place on my Kindle. I recommend watching paint dry instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and honest January 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book tells it like it is, that mental illness isn't something to shy away from but something to face head on. Judi tells her story with honesty and humorous. She doesn't shy away from the reality of mental illness but takes the reader along for the ride. All in all an excellent read.

I love humor in books and this one is pretty good. The author gives some absolutely killer lines. Most of us can related the details in this book to someone else in our lives. I am very interested in reading more of the work of this author.

Smart and sassy commentary of life as we approach middle age. Shot chapters, erratically assembled, make for a quick trollop through various topics which impact women.

More About the Author

Raised in an affluent suburb of Detroit, Judi Coltman grew up in a female heavy household with an urban sense of "normal." Coltman attended Michigan State University, majoring in Journalism until a professor requested she switch majors - "Apparently making a story better with added features isn't acceptable in the news world," Coltman laments. With a BA in English from Northern Illinois University, Coltman has written for local, regional and national publications.

Most recently, Coltman has been focusing on her true passion, delving into the realm or fiction. In The Name Of The Father is Coltman's first novel, a suspense/thriller. Currently working on her next novel, Coltman is still writing a blog called, "My Life in a Nutshell," from where her humorous book material was born. Often compared to Erma Bombeck, Coltman sees the humor in the absurdity of everyday life and then tells anyone who will listen.

Judi Coltman and her husband split their time between northern Illinois and the California desert. Sometimes they even pass each other at the airport.
