Book Description

•Do you refuse to take the top newspaper on a stack (even if perfect)?
•Insist that the toilet paper hang "over"?
•Wait for the phone to ring at least twice before answering?
•Keep returning to the refrigerator hoping that something new to eat has materialized?

Outrageous, outlandish and downright ridiculous eccentricities exhibited (and confessed to) by otherwise normal people. From hilarious bathroom behavior to funny money and unconventional clothing habits to eating and sleeping peculiarities to germ-a-phobia and sportsmania and more.

You will laugh while gaining insight into yourself and others!
People do the darndest things!

Editorial Reviews

Review

Hilarious collection of odd behaviors that are surprisingly endemic among humankind.
--Midwest Book Review
 

Judy Reiser has collected gem-like examples that show you're not alone
and gives you a chance to chortle or smirk at others' idiosyncrasies.
--New York Times Book Review
 

Judy Reiser's concept of collecting the foibles of Everyman is not only unique, but genius.
She invented the category. You will find yourself in her book and you will laugh out loud.
--Ed Clancy, Radio Broadcaster
 

Everybody has quirks. Reiser got grown people to think about it and to tell her about it.
--The Washington Post
 

Great stress reliever. Gotta have just for the laughs.
Would LOVE to have been on that book's research team!
--Karla Skinner, amazon.com
 

Within minutes I found myself laughing out loud at the confessions that are revealed.
Its content will be well received by anyone from the ages of 6-106.

About the Author

About the Author Judy Reiser began collecting quirks after a conversation in which she divulged something crazy she does and a friend shared something he does. After having a good laugh about it, she soon discovered that everyone seems to have quirks. She has been observing, gathering, marveling at and laughing about quirks ever since. Her husband insists that if she had written this book of quirks as an autobiography, it would have been much longer! Judy interviewed over 2,500 people for her three books: "And I Thought I Was Crazy!", "Admit It, You’re Crazy!", and "In a Cell Phone Minute".

5.0 out of 5 stars Especially for amateur students of human nature August 16, 2001
Format:Paperback
And I Thought I Was Crazy!: Quirks, Idiosyncrasies And Meshugaas is a hilarious collection of odd behaviors that are surprisingly endemic among humankind - little things like always making coat hangers face in the same direction, insisting that the toilet paper hang toward the front of the roll, and so on. Intended for mirth and amusement, yet at the same time absolutely true, And I Thought I Was Crazy! cheerfully embraces the bizarre little mannerisms and habits that help us cope. This book makes for good light reading, especially for amateur students of human nature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Myshelf.com Book Reviewer May 2, 2002
Format:Paperback
Within minutes of first opening Judy Reiser's AND I THOUGHT I WAS CRAZY! QUIRKS, IDIOSYNCRASIES, AND MESHUGAAS I found myself laughing out loud at the confessions revealed. In this delightful novel, you will find a treasure chest of some of the funniest, strangest, warmest, and touching ideas I have every heard of. What I found that made this book unique was that all the stories are based on true facts collected by the author. Over 2000 interviews were conducted in order to create this book and its sequel.
After reading this book, I must admit I felt better knowing other people shared some of my own habits. In fact, in reading some of these ideas, it made me want to go out and give them a try! This book is designed to help make you realize it is perfectly acceptable to do things differently. Readers will find themselves breathing a little easier knowing they are not alone in their belief that they know the correct way to hang toilet paper. Another thing I found fascinating was this book is designed to be read as little or as much as your schedule will allow. You will be glad to hear there is no set age limit in reading this book. Its content will be well received by anyone from the ages of 6-106.
Laughter is one of the key elements required to deal with life's everyday struggles. I feel this book is just what the doctor would order to ensure you have a double dose of happiness to add to your daily life.

What a great kicker for the middle of the day - opening this book and getting an histerical glimpse into my fellow man- and woman-kind - their wild and weird behaviors and habits. The best chuckles I've had all month.
Final words on the subject - Great stress reliever. Gotta have just for the laughs. (Wouldn't I have LOVED to been on that book's research team!)

After having a good laugh about it, she soon discovered that everyone has quirks.
