In this special world, there's no such thing as shame, grim embarrassment, or TMI. Now, in this hilarious and irreverent guide to life, the Whatever duo of Alexis Stewart and Jennifer Koppelman Hutt shares their edgy commentary, colorfully candid true-life stories, and stylish common sense on everything from dieting to home, marriage to organizing, dating to eating, fashion to sex.
This unique tour of Whateverland is perhaps the world's first un-self-help book. Most self-improvement and DIY books ask you to focus on your flaws and then change yourself and your life in order to fix them. In Whateverland,Alexis and Jennifer confess that we all haveimperfections and insecurities, and they argue—with wit and irony—that we need to accept ourselves the way we are. Yes, we can improve, but we don't need to aim for perfection. Our flubs don't have to get in the way of our happiness, and yes, they can be funny.
In Whateverland, Alexis and Jennifer share their shocking life experiences, deep and dark personality quirks, and exuberant gossip. You'll read about the time Jennifer clogged Martha Stewart's pristine toilet, what happened when Alexis's pants came undone in a crowded restaurant, and much more. The Whateverland women share practical advice for every area of your life, including getting over the mistakes your parents made, starting over when you mess up on a new diet, and fun things to do with your underwear when you're on a date.
You'll read Alexis and Jennifer's rules on dating and home decor. Illustrated throughout with photos from the authors' personal collections, Whateverland also includes simple, elegant,and delicious recipes.
Whatever you struggle with—bad hair, an unhappy childhood, or not-the-best cookingand "homekeeping" skills—the real-deal wisdom of Alexis and Jennifer will help you see that it's totally okay not to be perfect at home,at work, and in your relationships. Once you level with yourself and lighten up, life can be happier and a hell of a lot more fun.
This is definitely not your mother's self-help book. Whatever!
I was a big fan of the Whatever radio show, mostly because I relate so much to Alexis and because Jennifer is such a perfect foil to Alexis's acerbic nature, it was a brilliant... Read morePublished 6 months ago by ACH
This book is a quick read and very entertaining. I do not understand why anyone would get so upset about it. I really enjoyed it. And if you are upset with bad language, unclench.Published 7 months ago by Mae Johns

Well, I tried to force myself to keep reading and couldn't do it so in all fairness, my review is only on about the first 1/4 of the "book" if that's what you'd call it. Read morePublished on September 6, 2012 by PZAZ
Borrowed this from the library for free--that is about the right price to pay for this book. The authors (neither of which I would ever like to meet after reading this) start out... Read morePublished on August 11, 2012 by Old Fashioned Girl
Fine. I'd like to see Alexis write her own book about some "serious" issues and some mundane ones. She carries this book.Published on July 29, 2012 by Twin Mom
I enjoys Alexis' sections because I am very simular even to the point of saying how awful her own upbringing was in one breath and in the next saying every child should be raised... Read morePublished on June 29, 2012 by tvshrine
