Any daughter has GOT to read this one. Pass it along to your friends. Give it to a mother for Mother's Day! Give it to your best friend whose daughter is leaving for college.....
Very, very funny!
This book reminds me of a "blockbuster" movie. You know those movies you go to see where they put all the good parts in the ads, and then the rest of it feels like filler? That's a good description for this book. Most of the funniest bits are quoted verbatim in the introduction for each chapter, and then restated later in the chapter. The rest is sweet but unfulfilling, like too much diet soda.
Need to shut your brain off totally? This will do. Want to belly laugh? It might happen once. The rest of the book would make a good addition to your dentist's waiting room.
It's a sweet, funny, wholesome book that gently and playfully celebrates mothers of adults and shares their motherly wisdom through developing technology. More than once, while reading it, I thought to myself, 'that's my mom!' I laughed through the whole thing and can't wait for my mom to read it, too.
