"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

About the Author
THE AMY BINEGAR-KIMMES-LYLE BOOK OF FAILURES is a funny memoir. If you have ever failed at love, finances, been fired, not fit in, self-diagnosed yourself with disorders and conditions and/or said "I really need to get my s*** together," this is the book for you. "THE FUNNIEST, WITTIEST, AND MOST RELATABLE BOOK A GIRL COULD READ." -A. Evers of Bluelinesscritpure "Don't Read While Drinking (Your coffee, wine, etc. will shoot through your nose from laughing.)" - R. Johnson of Ivy Owl Reviews "You will definitely appreciate your own family dysfunction as you read through Amy's ‘Book of Failures.’ Can't wait to see more." -S. Pacey Northside Woman Magazine Delight in Amy Lyle’s 45 years of missteps, inadequacies and faux pas. You may appreciate your own dysfunction a little more as you take a journey through Amy’s debacles including: “I Was Not Talking to You,” where Amy mistakes a handsome man waving at her as a potential suitor but in reality he was only trying to inform her that her belt was dragging on the freeway and “In the Neighborhood,” where members of a cult moving in concurred with a suspicious decline in the cat population. You will relish the chapters entitled “Calls from Sharon,” where Amy’s best friend rants about her kids not getting a fair shot because public schools are ‘so political,’ as her OB/GYN reported her vagina was ‘too clean’ and how the most eligible bachelor from 1982 married a whore. Enjoy “I’m Going to Kill You,” where Amy compares her lack of sleep from her husband’s snoring to CIA agents extracting secrets from a POW. Feel 20-32% better about your own life after reading “Getting Divorced Sucks,” where 911 was called after Amy had an adverse reaction from taking Xanax. THE AMY-BINEGAR-KIMMES-LYLE BOOK OF FAILURES is for anyone who has experienced their own disasters or takes pleasure in the failures of others. The book has been featured in The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Atlanta and Company morning Show, Northside Women magazine, Points North magazine, My Forsyth magazine, and many blogs.

"Amy takes the reader through one challenging situation after another, with charm and self-deprecating humor. Her dialogue is honest, If she did make some of it up, as her disclaimer mentions, you won't care because it puts a smile on your face. My favorite story was the disjointed conversation between Amy and her husband, about whether to adopt a child from China. If you are fortunate enough to hear her read from her book in person, you will double your pleasure."
