If you're not familiar with Jenners - this is a great introduction. Her blog is awesome, she's funny as hell, and a great writer. This makes a great addition to your library next to the Bible and that leather-bound edition of Moby Dick you want people to think you've read.

Just get it - $5 is less that like $1 a day for year. I think.

I read an advanced copy of this book and laughed my ass off. Jen is one of my favorite humorists and holds nothing back, her rants on holidays, family and cookie swaps will NOT disappoint!

It's super cheap so if you want to see if you' ll like it, why not? But let me warn you, the comic genius on display for the blog post never shines again I'm sorry to say. I give it two stars because she does include the post, which is the funniest thing I can remember reading! I laughed so hard I cried. Seriously, I never do that. So, I was super excited about this book and so sorely disappointed.

I loved this book, including the format. I have two small kids and don't get much reading done these days so the essay style is perfect for me. I got thirty uninterrupted minutes tonight while my son was in swim lessons and I was laughing out loud. I find the author is so easy to relate to. She's hysterical and has a big heart, two of my favorite qualities in a writer.

Jen of People I want to punch in the throat is one of my favorite bloggers and she doesn't hold anything back. Love her sense of humor and she tells it like it is. I was laughing so hard I had tears when she was talking about how the Hubs had never seen A Christmas story. This is a great short read and as I said a good laugh. Keep up the good work Jen and would love to see another book!

I'm a relatively new fan of the 'PIWTPITT' blog, and I love both the blog and the book. The book is a quick-read, but it is absolutely hilarious. My personal favorites were the chapters were about Cookie Exchanges and the Fictitious Christmas Brag Letter.

I'm not complaining at all about the size of the book - it's priced accordingly. I was sad when it was over because I wanted more laughs! So Jen, next time, give us more, please!

Highly encourage you to check this book out or give it as a gift to a girlfriend. You will laugh, guarantee it!

Jen of People I want to Punch in the throat rocks! She delivers a set of hysterical essays on the holidays (not to worry - the notorious Over-Achieving Elf on the Shelf Moms is present and accounted for and definitely stands the test of time). Read it through once on my kindle (laughing all the way...) and will be revisiting throughout the season for stress relief as needed!

I bought this book based only on it's title and the number of great reviews it got. The title attracted me because, while I love to spend time with my family at Christmas, inevitably there is always one unrelated, uninvited family who shows up to the function. This family consists entirely of PIWTPITT.

While at first I thought this book would be entirely about family members and friends who annoy the crap out of the author during the holidays, I discovered it was much more than that. This read draws from the author's views and experiences from her childhood to the present. Hilarious insights about Christmas cookies, OAM's (Over Achieving Mothers), The Elf on the Shelf, Christmas Santas and so much more.

From what I could tell, the author is about four years younger than me, and so much of what she wrote rang so true with me that I think we may have been separated at birth. Little People's McDonald's Playset? Check. Guess? acid-washed jeans? Check. Black Madonna bracelets? Check, please!!

I would have to say that if you are a female who did at least part of your growing-up in the 80s, you will absolutely love this book. For everybody else, give it a shot. It is really, really funny. One warning: If you take issue with cussing, this book is not for you. But like this author pointed out, she knows she has her peeps, and I think she's good with that.

Count me in, Jen! Hee-freakin'-larious!!
