Because it's not. Most of the 'tidbits' in here can be found on most email forwards. There is nothing original about this book, and it's really kind of passive-agressive in it's attempts to portray 'family harmony.'

And how interesting it is that all the positive reviewers have only written one review ever for Amazon. I'm sure, since this review is negative, one of said reviewers will object to this, but, before you base a purchase decision on positive praise, make sure you take that praise with a grain of salt and question why this was the only book those who love this book ever reviwed.

All the 5 star reviews here are self applause. Each positive reviewer has written a total ONE review each. A couple posters, or should I say posers, have actually toned it down to 3 (not "scriptural" enough) or 4 stars, but the 5 star icon proclaiming 'American Classic' is the rule. Incredibly, out of the millions of books printed, out of the number of books these guys must have read, each of these reviewers have seemingly found only one --this one-- worth reviewing. They tell us to a wo/man "it's hilarious".

I smell something foul, and to use the vernacular evoked by the title -- it be's stanky.

This book is about as profound as Hamburger Helper, and half as appealing. I regret paying $1.50 for it. The money would have been better used as lost, small coins at the beach for the guys with metal detectors to find, one by one. At least that would have brought some small joy. On my deathbed I will want back the hour I spent reading it. 'Momma' and her wimpy, pantywaist Poppa owe me, they owe me big time.

The book is plainly horrendous, tedious, and so cliche ridden you'd swear it was a spoof. To call it sub-par would be a wild understatement.

To make matters worse the reviews of questionable origin here on this site, in regards to this piece of bound pablum, are quite simply public exercises in masturbation and obfuscation...

but Hey! Bon appetit if you're into that kind of thing!

Why anyone would want 'tidbits' from this disgusting narrow minded and hateful woman is beyond me. She is bigoted and ignorant, her behavior on wife swap was a disgrace, I feel sorry for her children! Burn the book, probably funded by her pathetic excuse for a husband.
