Book Description

From the author behind the hit novel "How to Fail: The Self-Hurt Guide" comes this collection of eleven short stories about the sexes, sex, and sexiness in New York.

"The References" -- The final few lines of one's resume are usually devoted to references that can tell a would-be employer you're the right person for the job. One's life references are a little different, but even more important.

"The Ambiguous Woman" -- A man struggles to figure out exactly what a woman is thinking while on a date with her.

"The Boyfriend Trials" -- A fed-up thirty-year-old woman has a most interesting methodology in searching for the perfect partner.

"Health" -- Arthur Lampkin is the sex-ed teacher at a Staten Island high school whose life is a living hell of comical sex-ed tools, oversexed teenagers, and an undersexed home life.

"The Feminist" -- Kelly Meyers is the only male professor at an all-girls college.

"Comedic Romance" -- Love in real life never happens like it does in Hollywood rom-coms.

"He Proposed" -- The day a woman gets proposed to is the most exciting day of her life. And, she can't wait to tell you all about it.

"Born. Again" -- What happens when a sexually promiscuous New York atheist spends a weekend with a chaste Midwestern Christian?

"Gross Humans" -- If you knew what most couples did behind closed doors, you'd be repulsed.

"Ain't Nothing Like a New York Romance" -- There can't possibly be a better place to fall in love than New York City. Can there?

"The Cheat Sheet" - [plot redacted]

Editorial Reviews


"Goldfarb's satire turns the genre on its ear...warps it like a fun-house mirror, to hysterical effect. Piss-yourself funny."  (regarding HOW TO FAIL:  THE SELF-HURT GUIDE) --The Philadelphia Lawyer, "Happy Hour is For Amateurs"

"This is like the Bible for screwing up, except a little more awesome. Would that make Aaron Goldfarb a prophet for failures? We'd like to think so." (regarding HOW TO FAIL:  THE SELF-HURT GUIDE) --Jason Diamond, editor, Jewcy

"'How to Fail' is reminiscent of a classic that raised eyebrows sixty years ago: J.D. Salinger's 'Catcher in the Rye.'" (regarding HOW TO FAIL:  THE SELF-HURT GUIDE) --Len Edgerly, The Kindle Chronicles

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Aaron Goldfarb's The Cheat Sheet April 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is just more proof of how talented writer Aaron Goldfarb can be. Couples in various situations, and how they handle them, are found in this book. Aside from being in New York State, they don't have too much in common. Some of the stories finish the way you think they will, Some have a twist ending that might knock your socks off (well, they did mine). Goldfarb's writing always leaves me hungry for more.

That's proper use of an ellipsis by the way. You think I engage in hyperbole? No, not at all. Aaron Goldfarb's The Cheat Sheet is one of the greatest short story collections known to man. Am I kissing his ass? No, not at all. I consider Aaron to be a close, personal friend. I loan him Kindle books and show concern for his well being on Twitter. Did you get that lock of hair I sent you in the mail, Aaron? We need to hang out, I cut my hair just like yours. Please don't ignore me.'ll like The Cheat Sheet if you like variety and unpredictable characters in your short stories. Aaron Goldfarb is a student of humanity. And, he likes beer if that convinces you to buy his book.
