Hilarious collection of odd behaviors that are surprisingly endemic among humankind.
--Midwest Book Review
 

Judy Reiser has collected gem-like examples that show you're not alone
and gives you a chance to chortle or smirk at others' idiosyncrasies.
--New York Times Book Review
 

Judy Reiser's concept of collecting the foibles of Everyman is not only unique, but genius.
She invented the category. You will find yourself in her book and you will laugh out loud.
--Ed Clancy, Radio Broadcaster
 

Everybody has quirks. Reiser got grown people to think about it and to tell her about it.
--The Washington Post
 

Great stress reliever. Gotta have just for the laughs.
Would LOVE to have been on that book's research team!

About the Author

About the Author Judy Reiser began collecting quirks after a conversation in which she divulged something crazy she does and a friend shared something he does. After having a good laugh about it, she soon discovered that everyone seems to have quirks. She has been observing, gathering, marveling at and laughing about quirks ever since. Her husband insists that if she had written this book of quirks as an autobiography, it would have been much longer! Judy interviewed over 2,500 people for her three books: "And I Thought I Was Crazy!", "Admit It, You’re Crazy!", and "In a Cell Phone Minute".

And I Thought I Was Crazy!: Quirks, Idiosyncrasies And Meshugaas is a hilarious collection of odd behaviors that are surprisingly endemic among humankind - little things like always making coat hangers face in the same direction, insisting that the toilet paper hang toward the front of the roll, and so on. Intended for mirth and amusement, yet at the same time absolutely true, And I Thought I Was Crazy! cheerfully embraces the bizarre little mannerisms and habits that help us cope. This book makes for good light reading, especially for amateur students of human nature.

Within minutes of first opening Judy Reiser's AND I THOUGHT I WAS CRAZY! QUIRKS, IDIOSYNCRASIES, AND MESHUGAAS I found myself laughing out loud at the confessions revealed. In this delightful novel, you will find a treasure chest of some of the funniest, strangest, warmest, and touching ideas I have every heard of. What I found that made this book unique was that all the stories are based on true facts collected by the author. Over 2000 interviews were conducted in order to create this book and its sequel.
After reading this book, I must admit I felt better knowing other people shared some of my own habits. In fact, in reading some of these ideas, it made me want to go out and give them a try! This book is designed to help make you realize it is perfectly acceptable to do things differently. Readers will find themselves breathing a little easier knowing they are not alone in their belief that they know the correct way to hang toilet paper. Another thing I found fascinating was this book is designed to be read as little or as much as your schedule will allow. You will be glad to hear there is no set age limit in reading this book. Its content will be well received by anyone from the ages of 6-106.
Laughter is one of the key elements required to deal with life's everyday struggles. I feel this book is just what the doctor would order to ensure you have a double dose of happiness to add to your daily life.

What a great kicker for the middle of the day - opening this book and getting an histerical glimpse into my fellow man- and woman-kind - their wild and weird behaviors and habits. The best chuckles I've had all month.
Final words on the subject - Great stress reliever. Gotta have just for the laughs. (Wouldn't I have LOVED to been on that book's research team!)

After reading "And I Thought I Was Crazy! Quirks, Idiosyncrasies, and Meshugaas" by Judy Reiser, I don't feel so weird, strange, odd, or crazy anymore. So what if I talk to myself in the mirror and eat bananas with a fork!? The people in her book are crazier than I will ever be. Okay, that was lie. I actually have some of their very same quirks and more. But hey, if I can't laugh at myself while laughing at them, I might as well climb in bed and pull the covers over my head. Well, come to think of it, I freak out if the covers are over my head. I feel trapped or like someone may trap me under there.

Did I make you laugh? Good! Then you will LOVE reading Judy's book. My quirks don't even scratch the surface of some of the hilarious "meshugaas (a Yiddish word for strange, unexplainable, inconsistent behavior)" offered from people she has interviewed along the way. (Kindle Location 69) She even delivers their age, sex, and career. What is so shocking is that some of these people are doctors (even therapists), lawyers, vice presidents, and some are your everyday waitresses, housewives, or cabana boys. It seems no matter who you are, what you do, or how you dress, we are all crazy in our own little way. We all have our "quirks, idiosyncrasies (notice it sort of spells crazy?), and meshugaas."

So, if you make your friend sing to you outside the bathroom stall or smell everything before you touch it like some of those in her book... or even if you don't, but want to laugh at those who do, get Judy Reiser's book! You may find yourself laughing like a hyena... Oh wait, that was me according to my son who overheard me reading this book. Seriously! I laughed so hard, I cried.

This book makes you take notice of your own habits and has you convincing yourself that you're not THAT crazy. But at the same time it keeps you laughing knowing that you know someone who does that. I found myself shaking my head in agreeance to some of the idiosyncrasies, laughing hysterically at others, and some just made me gasp in disbelief as my jaw hit the floor! "And I Thought I was Crazy!" is a fun, light read for anyone, anytime, anywhere. I would recommend it to anyone who loves to laugh!

This book is genius! You will not get through this book without laughing out loud and going "OMG, I do that!!!" You will find by the end of the book that maybe you are not so weird after all. Or maybe you are! But, you will also discover that every single person on the face of this Earth, no matter what age, gender, race, or anything else - we all have quirks, and not-a-one of us are normal!
