Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Emmy Award-winning broadcaster Steve Doocy is the cohost of Fox News Channel's Fox & Friends. He has earned reporting and writing awards from the Associated Press, Sigma Delta Chi, and the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and has worked at NBC, CBS, and Fox. He and his wife, Kathy, live just outside New York City with their three children.

From AudioFile

There can never be too many guides to staying married, especially when they're as funny and insightful as this one. The Fox News Channel broadcaster shares hilarious anecdotes from his twenty-year marriage, as well as tongue-in-cheek advice for men on staying out of trouble with their wives. Steve Doocy is a humble teacher with a big heart who speaks with zesty appreciation for his one and only; his speaking voice conveys a perspective that both men and women will enjoy. However, his exaggerated speaking style will seem overreaching to some and too often competes for attention with his ideas. But with snippets of advice from his calmer-sounding wife to keep things in perspective, the production ultimately entertains.

Hilarious!

This happens to be one of the funniest, and perhaps most useful books I have read in a long time! Yes, the world knows that boys and girls are different: our perspectives, our needs, and the way we communicate; however, in `The Mr. & Mrs. Happy Handbook: Everything I Know About Love and Marriage (with corrections by Mrs. Doocy)' by Steve Doocy I can't recall when a book celebrating the differences allowed the reader to remember one simple rule of life for which I think most individuals get married for: be happy!

Starting out with girl meets boy, or boy meets girl, or boy meets boy, or girl meets girl - whatever: marriage is the beginning of INTENDED long term happiness through partnership. Yet, there's this thing we all face: LIFE! Crap happens! How we deal with it . . . before the kids sets the pace. Doocy is trying and succeeding to share with us all not to take things too seriously, have a little compassion, and laugh as much as you can regardless of what happens. Be flexible. Then more stuff happens: CHILDREN! More flexibility is required! Doocy delivers such interesting stories relating to the life of marriage and children, that there's many things here for many different readers.

Cleverly dissecting most events married (or formerly married) individuals and parents alike can relate to, `The Mr. & Mrs. Happy Handbook: Everything I Know About Love and Marriage (with corrections by Mrs. Doocy)', is filled with such funny one-line zingers and hilariously awkward situations that readers who are married or intending to get married should truly consider running out and reading this most enjoyable book! I would like to provide one helpful hint to all readers before you begin reading: make sure you don't drink much liquid and make sure there's a bathroom close by! Who knew Doocy was so funny?! I may have to reconsider this whole thing of marriage myself one day soon.

Format: Hardcover
Even though my wife and I have been married almost twice as long as Steve Doocy (37 years, and countiing), it never hurts to get someone else's take on how to have a happy marriage. Steve is a very funny fellow, and I enjoy watching him every weekday morning on "Fox and Friends". He adds some brightness into any morning that appears gloomy to me, and his book does the same. His take on marriage, with all its fun and follies rings quite true, and the humor with which he presents it softens any heavy lesson being put across. All I can say is that his wife must be one outstanding lady to have lived with him all of these years, but I feel the same way about my own wife: why do such tremendous women select guys like Steve and me? Just one of life's little mysteries!

This is a fantastic, funny, all-so-important to newlyweds and us older weds. The humor, brilliant writings from Mr. and Mrs. Happy themselves and of the others are witty. In this axis of evil world we live in, we need more HAPPY books to lift up our spirits. I kept a box of Kleenex nearby as I laughed so hard mytears kept tearing. Buy it for the holidays as this is a winner that everyone should read. What a hoot. Noreen

Being an avid fan of Fox & Friends already, having watched it for years & years, when I knew Steve was writing a book - first thing I thought, this will be a smash hit! He's hilarious on the show and I knew that it would leak over to his book. I had to get a copy & was the first one in my town that bought one! Unfortunately, not with an autograph :(((

Steve's done a great job combining love, marriage & humor - and splicing them together for a happy & successful marriage. Way to go Steve!

I expected a bit more after all the hype on "Fox and Friends". I am a fan of Steve Doocy's, but this book wasn't as entertaining as it was claimed to be. I read it in one sitting. I found myself 'pushing forward' in hopes to get to the good parts that everyone raved about, but I never quite found the humor. It's an OK read for a rainy afternoon (or when you're just sitting, awaiting for your child's dance practice to end). Get it from a friend or the local library. Not worth buying for your own personal library.

I really enjoyed this book. Doocy's humor is so random and dead-on when it comes to marriage, diapers, and snakes. It's a perfect wedding gift, and cheaper than china.

I started reading this book at 7:30pm and finished at 2:30am.

NEVER put it down-COULDN'T put it down!

The best book I've ever read (at least the funniest!)

I actually found myself laughing outloud!!

Kudos to Mr. Happy and the Doocy Family!

Marriage takes hard work and then children become a part of it.........and the work gets harder!!! The good side is that the rewards become even greater!!

This is an hilarious look at marriage through the (sometimes!!) quite different viewpoints of a husband and wife "team". As you read this book and learn about the Doocy's life, from the Wedding day tales to the Honeymoon, from the challenges of parenthood, birth through college (and then more!!) to the very real challenges of a long term forever relationship, this is a wonderful story. They also take on topics of a mature nature, such as "The Love Machine by Kenmore" or the neighborhood swingers and their invitation, to the important area of troubleshooting a marriage. Steve Doocy makes his life an open book (literally) that talks about the confusing communications that can and do go on between a married couple.He reveals the great joy and deep love that they find in their relationship , with all the ups and downs and the hard work that goes into nurturing, building and keeping it all going. It seems that one of the "magic" ingredients is a strong sense of humor, the ability to laugh at our own flaws and a deep sense of respect and honor for each other that is never allowed to waiver!

I really enjoyed this. Just to clarify, I am married 30 years (yes to the same man!!), 4 children, one son-in-law and a grandchild. Good things take hard work, great things take even more!!!
