Definitely recommend this book. Its laugh out loud funny, honest and filled with information to get anyone out of Sticky Situations!! Its become my own personal "survival guide".
You need to get this book. It is hysterical, interesting, enlightening and all together, on so many levels, too true!
Imagine if you could....that you are able to roll up your ultimate BFF and carry her around. This book would be her!
The moment I received the book...I was drawn in.
This is not a regular read cover to cover book but rather a reference book of pretty much anything you can imagine. With chapter titles such as:
* Sticky Situations in Love
* Sticky Situations in Weddings
* Sticky Situations in Parties
* Sticky Situations in Beauty
You will find yourself laughing and relating to many of the scenarios and situations presented in this book. In fact, some of them are so silly or downright embarrassing you might be really grateful that there is now proof that others have experienced the situation too. You know it is just awful when you feel like you are the only one to have done something dumb, doesn't it?
My favorite section was Sticky Situations in Your Family. Now, don't get me wrong I have a wonderful family...both the in-laws and the outlaws...but sometimes well, you just find yourself in "those" kind of situations....such as "Your family expects you to name your baby after a particular family member, but you dont' want to" or "You woke up and realized your kids are just plain spoiled" and "You're fighting with your siblings or step-sibling over an inheritance"
In situation after situation you will see yourself or someone you know. Jane has done a wonderful job in creating honesty, humor and lighthearted way at looking at life. This is not Jane's first book as she is also the author of The Modern Girl's Guide to Life and The Modern Girl's Guide to Motherhood. Pick them up and enjoy!
Psst...Jane...if you need reviews on those...I'm your girl!
I would recommend this book to everyone, but more so to those who attend parties and work in the corporate world.
