The gist: if you have a mother, or mother figure, buy this book. Unless you're quite argumentative and don't want to lose, that is.
Be sure to buy the hardcover instead of the Kindle edition. The quality of the paper, 6" x 7" size, and different fonts make it a very special eye-catching book, suitable for a coffee or end table for just picking up and browsing.
Fans of Postcards from Yo Mamma and new readers will enjoy this; seeing all the entries together is a reminder that checking up on one's kids is pretty universal, as is mothers not letting propriety or anything else stop them from having their say.
This book reminds me of a "blockbuster" movie. You know those movies you go to see where they put all the good parts in the ads, and then the rest of it feels like filler? That's a good description for this book. Most of the funniest bits are quoted verbatim in the introduction for each chapter, and then restated later in the chapter. The rest is sweet but unfulfilling, like too much diet soda.
Need to shut your brain off totally? This will do. Want to belly laugh? It might happen once. The rest of the book would make a good addition to your dentist's waiting room.
Any daughter has GOT to read this one. Pass it along to your friends. Give it to a mother for Mother's Day! Give it to your best friend whose daughter is leaving for college.....
Very, very funny!

The book was alright, but not very many of the stories were that funny. My mom liked it as a gift, though, so I suppose that's what counts.Published on June 8, 2009 by book addict
