I first read "Vital Signs" while doing something that many men spend much time doing...waiting for a woman to get ready, despite the fact that I showed up right on time. I was met with a half-prepared date, who showed me to her TV, gave me the clicker, and expected me to be transfixed for the obligatory half-hour or so of waiting.
However, this Tuesday night there were no good games on, so I picked up "Vital Signs" in order to get an insight into the mind of this woman that entrusted me with her clicker.
My initial reaction was that this would be one of those "Men always let us down, so let's write a book to bond with whom we are, and to bash them for being whom they are". It turned out to be anything but. The author seemed to genuinely like men, for all of our faults, but managed to provide her readers with "age-old" wisdom wrapped in non-preachy witticisms. I decided to get myself a copy the next day.
I found that while I walked dangerously like some of the "trouble" guys mentioned in the book, I admired the writer for telling women like it is in some respects, "if the signs of trouble are there, deal with them head on, and get out if the going looks rocky". I can't tell you how many of my "chick-buddies" I've preached this to, only to have them shut me out, and do what they want anyway. The author avoids my first inclination to preach, and just reminds the reader of the pitfalls of ignoring "vital signs", whether good or bad. I've recommended the book to a number of friends, one of whom immediately left a voicemail to thank me for being so "enlightened".
I don't know what electricity has to do with any of this, but I recommend taking a look at Vital Signs, for a laugh, and friendly advice.

What a laugh. I was looking for some much needed advice (unfortunately) on women and dating when I came upon this little gem. Are men really like this? Can women really know so much about us? Although intended for the female audience, there is good material here for a man on the dating scene. It's always good to know your limitations, or that of your entire gender, whenever trying to understand the female mind! So advice for women and dating yes, but you can't go wrong as a man knowing more about the criteria by which we are being evaluated.

Laughter has always been the best medicine,the gift to poke fun at yourself and in this case some bad dating choices ...really bad choices..
I found this book to be funny , thoughtful and I couldn't help
but recognize a few (more than a few) of my past mistakes. It's a good book to kick back and enjoy.Share with your friends,guarenteed giggles as you start telling your own stories.

Lisa Crugnola's Vital Signs, is not only hysterically funny, it is also incredibly insightful to the realities of dating in today's world. The book covers everything from what physical postures and gestures can indicate to the everday concerns we encounter. Lisa's illustrations are expressive and comical. This book is a delightful little treasure every woman should have!

I sat down to read this book just for fun, then, much to my surprise I started to recognize a variety of characters from my past. The chapter "Mommy Dearest" brought back chilling memories of my ex-boyfriend and his toxic mother. Reading that chapter made me glad I got away from both of them and helped me laugh over an experience that had once caused me a great deal of pain. My current boyfriend enjoyed the book as well, and now understands why, when we first started dating, he was subject to the "the twenty-five mother questions". The cartoon illustrations helped to make the entire book a lot of fun. I'll pass this one on to my equally traumatized girlfriends.
