Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

A popular standup comic's gentle riffs on the non-single state. Buy two -- one for yourself, one for your significant other -- and read them in bed together. If you laugh at the same parts, give yourselves two points; when you have 10,000 points, write to Paul Reiser and tell him what a great marriage you have and how funny his book is.

From Publishers Weekly

From the star of Mad About You, this look at love and romance spent 31 weeks on PW's bestseller list.

I am a huge fan of Reiser, and I loved Mad About You. This book is a funny, gentle, warm look at the little joys and problems of marriage. I am not even married and I was laughing out loud every page. It was a quick read, and it was the kind of humor I like best - the kind with a serious message underneath. Best of all, the book is as funny on a second reading as it is the first time. A must read!

This book holds the title of my most embarrassing experience with airplane reading. If you need a REALLY good laugh, and I mean out loud GUFFAW type of laughing - this is your book. I was traveling alone one day and started reading it in the airport. This book was so **** funny that I would just bust out laughing and snorting. I was laughing so hard that I was crying uncontrollably and my sides were hurting. I had to keep putting the book down to compose myself so I could read the next page!!

A random gentleman came up to me on the airplane and asked what the **** I was reading because he kept seeing me lay my head down to hide all the laughing and crying I was doing. He had never seen someone have so much fun flying alone.

So, yes - it could be a short read, if you didn't spend so much time laughing, while trying to see through your tears.

I highly recommend this title for anyone in need of an attitude adjustment.

This book is SO funny. After watching the show, Mad About You, I had to read this and it's chalk full of everything that Paul's character would say in the show. A very light and easy read, this is perfect if you just want to laugh and take a break from something serious.

I recommend this to anyone who's thinking about or already intrenched in a relationship. Paul Reiser brings humor and wow does he call it like it is for us men. i.e.. "Men think washing their feet is covered just by the drips while showering" "Why do men always clean their chest first?, its the cleanest part of the body even before stepping into the shower"! Great stuff!

I liked this book for one simple reason: Its Funny. Paul has his own way of saying and describing things that are uniquely Paul. No big life lessons here, just a lot of small, simple ones that will make you chuckle and think about your own life in a lighter tone.
If you could use a laugh or two and you like Paul Reiser this book is for you. Me I bought it, read it and enjoyed it.

Each night, before going to bed, my husband and I trade off reading 1 chapter from this book together, taking turns reading aloud. Sometimes it is hard to stop at only 1 chapter! Most times, we see ourselves in Paul's text, laughing ourselves to sleep. An excellent book to share!

A cute, quick enjoyable review of being a "couple". After being married for 31 years, it was fun to remember some things "We" had forgotten about a much earlier phase of our relationship/marriage. Though I discovered this text 18 years after it was first published, I still found it a pleasurable read.

This book is one of, if not the, best book I've ever read. It was one of the most honest, and well put book on coulples. It had me laughing, remembering, and looking forward to the stages of "couplehood", with every page turned. It wasn't meant to be a "self-help" book, I don't think, but it made me feel good with my relationship. Simply put, he helps the world know that those funny, aqward, uncomfortable, and comfortable stages of relationships, are happening to us all. I don't think I've ever related so much to a book (or laughed so hard with the associations I made) and this is one book I'd love to read over and over.
