Review

"Anger is like an essential vitamin and Jen has given me even more reasons to be angry. I couldn't be happier or healthier." -Lewis Black, stand-up comedian, actor, author, and regular on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

About the Author

Jennifer has written or co-authored more than 25 books, including the New York Times Bestseller The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Dating & Sex. In addition to finding her on bookshelves and newsstands, you can also check her out online at her blog, Things I Want to Punch in the Face (thingsiwanttopunchintheface.blogspot.com). And if you're really lucky, you can also catch Jennifer in university auditoriums and lecture halls, where she delivers side-splitting slide-show presentations based on her books. In addition, she can be found helping burgeoning authors create appealing and marketable book proposals at The Business of Books (bizofbooks.com).

More About the Author

I write. That's rather obvious. Mostly I write about things that blow my skirt up. Humor is a big--huge--part of everything I do. But then there's that soft, squishy sentimental part of me that can't help but rear its heartfelt head. And since I like to tell people what to do every chance I get, I write a lot of how-to books, blogs, and articles.

Humorous. Heartfelt. How-to. Three great tastes that taste great together, at least in my cereal bowl.

So let's get down to it. I know you don't have all day to ogle my bio, as much as a girl can dream. Here's what you should know off the bat: I'm the New York Times best-selling author of more than 25 books and, per Reader's Digest, one of the four funniest bloggers in the US. Pretty cool, eh?

I've written on everything under the sun for national magazines and websites like the Huffington Post, Allure, and Salon, and I currently write a books column for today.com. In addition to bookshelves, newsstands, and your favorite websites, you can also find me online at Things I Want to Punch in the Face (thingsiwanttopunchintheface.blogspot.com).

Along with fellow author and publishing pro Kerry Colburn, I deliver publishing talks, workshops, and webinars to help burgeoning authors get published through The Business of Books (bizofbooks.com). You can also catch me in university auditoriums, where I offer up side-splitting but informative slide-show presentations based on my popular books.

Originally from Southwestern Michigan, I currently live in Seattle, where I eschew fleece while eating more fish and chips than is good for me.

Format: Paperback
In these days that are stressful and fraught with harsh times, we need to laugh, release a little steam. We'd all agree that there is a heck of a lot that rolls our eyes. Jennifer Worick has finally called "bullsh-t," "enough already," and "come on, now" (and anything else you'd like to insert...) on those things in pop culture and our everyday lives that we all notice, too. Jennifer does it with a fast wit and realism that just makes you feel better, even though you didn't say the words yourself.

For example, on Jen's TIWTPITF Facebook page, when I saw Jen talk about those little family stickers on the back of vans (punching them in the face), I immediately felt just a little better that SOMEONE finally said something about it... even though I have a family, and I'm a former minivan owner (but I never had one of those stickers). Yes, justice was done here!

I have seen Jennifer speak in front of a college audience and I can safely say that her live presentations are as funny and engaging as her writing. I would highly recommend buying this book, both for the content, and because Jennifer has an exciting, fresh voice in humor. This is a not to be missed read, and I would grab extras for gifts. I know I will!

Finally! All those little annoyances like spoilers on facebook and worn out memes seem to be only annoying us while our friends laugh and laugh. NO MORE! Jennifer Worick has delivered unto us a great book that justifies our need to punch Blue Man Group in the face along with platform shoes and those family stickers on the back of the van (WE GOT IT. YOU HAVE A FAMILY. WE DON'T CARE. VERTICAL PEDAL ON THE RIGHT.)

If you are annoyed by pop culture trends and the smugness that goes along with it, this is the book for you. These are what you give your friends to also drop the hint that when they tell their partner on Facebook "OMG I LOVE YOU SO MUCH" it's annoying.

Buy a couple cause God knows you have a lot of friends like this.

Format: Paperback
For starters, I received this book as a First Reads giveaway, and I'm glad I did.

Wow, let's just say that had I not received this book for free, I would have been seriously disappointed, and wanted my money back. Priced at $11.95, for something that took me an hour to read, because it starts on page 13 and is only 125 pages long, this book is overpriced at just over $0.09 a page. As it turns out, the ebook versions are only a few dollars cheaper, which is even more of a ripoff. My recommendation is don't waste your money and instead just look through the author's blog, which is free and has all the contents of the book. Or, just go to your local bookstore and read it while there.

As you can probably tell, I found myself more annoyed than entertained with the author's rants. Yes, some were good, but more often than not I found myself wanting to punch Ms. Worick in the face. On the plus side, the books ends with her wanting to punch herself, which is why I gave it two stars instead of one.

It is SO very refreshing that Jennifer Worick has agreed to SPEAK OUT about all of the annoying things that people do and not be afraid of doing so. Long toenails? check. Family car stickers? check. Bluetooth headsets? check. Why is this country so back-asswards? At least we know that David Hasselhoff isn't a real rock star (hey, don't hassle the hoff!). This is a GREAT gift book. I'm buying one for every passive aggresive friend that I have and that's a lot living in Seattle! Hurry and buy 1 or 5 before they sell out and Jennifer becomes the next Jeaneane Garafolo.

I didn't know anything about Jennifer's TIWTPITF blog until I heard an interview with the author on Matt Paxton's "5 Decisions Away" podcast. If you are in your 30's or early 40's, you will like this book. The only disappointment was the overuse of the "F" word. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't be offended by its use sparingly here or there, but after one too many uses it got old. I bring this up because I don't remember Jennifer using it much on her blog, and also because she is so gifted in crafting scathingly witty and creative insults that are far more entertaining than base vulgarity. It was a quick read, and on its way to my mother-in-law. (I would say "on it's way", but that would get me a punch in the face!)

I have to read this blog with my face turned sideways so I don't spray coffee all over the screen. Ms. Worick is hilarious and her blog is my daily must-read. I am thrilled that I can, finally, carry this book around with me (instead of my laptop--iphone doesn't do it for me read-wise, and I haven't Kindled, yet)when I need a good smack-down. I highly rate this book and as much as I want to punch people who give the same Christmas gift to everyone they know, in this instance,I plan to make an exception. I especially love the punch to mimes and the pop in the planet to Mercury in retrograde and the merciless wax on stripper brows and the....oh, just get it already:)

Can't wait for the sequel!

I was expecting something a little different but its kind of funny.
Most people would relate to a lot of these things that would make you want to punch in the face.
