People I Want to Punch in the Throat by Jen Mann

What They Say....Jen Mann doesn’t have a filter, which sometimes gets her in trouble with her neighbors, her fellow PTA moms, and that one woman who tried to sell her sex toys at a home shopping party. Known for her hilariously acerbic observations on her blog, People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Mann now brings her sharp wit to bear on suburban life, marriage, and motherhood in this laugh-out-loud collection of essays. From the politics of joining a play group, to the thrill of mothers’ night out at the gun range, to the rewards of your most meaningful relationship (the one you have with your cleaning lady), nothing is sacred or off-limits. So the next time you find yourself wearing fuzzy bunny pajamas in the school carpool line or accidentally stuck at a co-worker’s swingers party, just think, What would Jen Mann do? Or better yet, buy her book.

 What I Say....This book was freaking hilarious.  

I laughed out loud all through the book, but that could be because Jen Mann is me.  I love people who say what everyone else is thinking, and it's refreshing to hear a suburban mom actually acknowledge the insanity of the Mommy Wars.

Her husband cracked me up (although I LOATHE it when people call their husband, "Hubs") with his cheapness, but also with his brutal honesty.  The four year old WAS a liar, and if someone said that to my kid, I would crack up.

I would say to my friends and family, if you like me, you will love this book!  A must read.

I received an ARC of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review...the only kind I give.
