3-0 out of 5 stars I failed the test
I think the overall concept of this book is great but I think some of the questions are completely irrelevant, like "what is the name of her elementary school." I know the town where she grew up but does it really matter if I knew the name of the school?

I personally thought 1000 Questions for Couples was much for useful. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The funniest stories you've never read
Moms love to tell pregnancy and childbirth war stories.Perfect strangers feel free to tell you about the agonizing hours they were in labor and all the medical emergencies they ever experienced, witnessed, heard of, or dreamed up.

How refreshing, then, to have this book.They Lied!True Tales of Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Breastfeeding is full of true stories, but they are the kind of true stories that new moms and moms-to-be really need.They are hilarious, heartwarming, and just plain fun.Be sure not to miss Christine Riley's "Confessions of a Seatbelt Zealot" wherein a very-pregnant woman gets stuck in her brother's car, or Amanda Euringer's "No Small Potatoes" where a new mom finds out that there are huge and unexpected cultural differences between the east and west coasts. I had to put the book down in the middle of both of these stories because I was laughing so hard.

Now that's the kind of stories a new mom needs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must Have! -- "Dead Serious" contributor Penny Aicardi
You truly can't understand the total experience of pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding without reading this book! Sure, you can go out there and get the lowdown on medical "stuff" but what fun is that? This book is a great diversion from the so-called popular pregnancy books out there that claim to have the answers to everything. You'll feel better just knowing that we've all been there in uncomfortable, hysterical, and embarrassing situations that those "other" books just don't talk about! Besides, after all the uninvited belly rubs, pounds gained, and "leaking" breasts - who couldn't use a laugh?

5-0 out of 5 stars Rant Relief
As an internationally published humor writer, I am proud that I have a personal essay entitled "Call a Pain a Pain" in this hilarious book. Finally - a chance to vent to people other than my children about some of the frustrations I had with childbirth and breastfeeding. Now, after more than two decades, my kids can share their guilt with the world. Plus, "They Lied!" is the ultimate baby shower gift that says, "Hey, congratulations! You look like you need a laugh about now." This book rocks!

5-0 out of 5 stars A great gift
As a mother of 2, I'd like to recommend this book as a baby shower gift. Who needs all those pairs of little socks?

5-0 out of 5 stars Hillarious stories so close to the heart!
What a wonderful book and a pleasure to read.It reminded me of some of the challenges I faced when I was pregnant with my own daughter.A good read for expectant mothers or mothers who already have kids and can relate to these stories. ... Read more

Book Description

In The Wacky World of Womanhood, Vicky DeCoster shares her humorous personal essays on childhood crises, dating dilemmas, marriage mishaps, parenthood pitfalls, and mid-life mayhem. She entertains readers with such hilarious anecdotes as choosing her first pair of glasses, mending a broken heart, nursing a sick husband back to health, having an affair with her carpet cleaner, suffering through a mid-life crisis, and reviewing the contents of her unmentionables drawer. Vicky DeCosterÂ’s "laugh out" stories are true and heartwarming, and offer an inside look at the wacky world of womanhood.

“Some writers make you laugh.Some make you think.Vicky DeCoster does both.Her refreshingly honest and humorous insights into human nature—particularly family dynamics—are always a source of amusement and inspiration.”

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice little read when you want to feel like you're not alone
Vicky hits a chord with many women, and with people who may know a women, in a style one might expect if she were the love-child of Erma Bombeck and Dave Berry.Like these writers, you get the sense that her everyday experiences are not that ordinary - but yet common to all.I hope to see more works by Vicky, unless her life has slowed down and become boring.Let's hope not.

5-0 out of 5 stars A "Must Have" for the woman in your life!
Vicky DeCoster's book, The Wacky World of Womanhood, really hits home!The humor is real and keeps the reader engrossed throughout the entire book.(I've even wondered at times if she somehow tapped into my head...)A breath of fresh air, and a must read for ALL women!

5-0 out of 5 stars laughed out load
The book was great. So much reminded me of my own experiences but Vicki made you see the fun and joy in it all. I was in tears I laughed so hard and both my husband and I enjoyed the laughter it brought to our day.

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm still laughing!
Vicky has quite a way with words and makes everything funny!I would highly recommend this book to women of all ages!

5-0 out of 5 stars Laughing at ourselves IS the best medicine!
To say I thoroughly enjoyed this book would be an understatement.At several points I was laughing so hard I was in tears; a tissue was necessary first for the tears, then for the nose blow because I just couldn't stop laughing.But it's not all uproariously funny -- much of the humor is gentle and subtle, a lot like our lives.I was amazed at how much Vicky hit home with my own life experiences.I plan to give this book as a gift to my closest girlfriends, passing on the humor. ...

Book Description

A new baby's arrival demands a dad give up sports, lose sleep, operate diapers, placate his wife, and protect his coveted material possessions. But all is not lost! For newcomers to fatherhood, Dad's Survival Guide to Babies provides dads a light-hearted perspective on their parenting careers. With finesse, author Hunter S. Fulghum details what equipment-and attitudes-dads need to prepare for and survive their children's development from harmless (albeit noisy and needful) infants to irritable teens. Fulghum's book is an uproarious instruction manual for novice dads that even experienced fathers will find useful and funny. Fulghum's quick-witted insight eases dads from frightened lumps of nerves to nurturing and loving parents-with a hard-nosed edge that earns them the right to say "I told you so" when their children start families of their own.

5-0 out of 5 stars Know a Nervous Dad to Be?
Right off the bat, you should know this book won't teach you anything you don't already know about babies. Your first hint should be the cover. However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't read this book. It exagerates everything known about being a Dad and having a new edition to the family.

The best part of the book are the various lists, including, things to do before the baby is born; the newborn's schedule; equipment needed to change a diaper; and steps to changing a diaper. I laughed hard after each one.

This is a great gift for any dad-to-be. My wife purchased this copy from Amazon for me about two months prior to our due date--just about the time I was finishing all the "guy's guide to pregnancy" type books. It's great fun, and I'd recommend it as a light hearted gesture for any new dad.

5-0 out of 5 stars Reminds Me to Have a Sense of Humor About Life
I really enjoyed this particular book. It was a funny look at the experience so many men have, and so many men have so little clue about. I dont' find the whole father deal so terrifying when I realize I can laugh about it - and I'm in good company.

It isn't Doctor Spock, true, but then he never made me smile or laugh.

1-0 out of 5 stars No toy equals one star
I first purchased this book over a year ago ... and before I know it all of Tulsa is talking about how much I like babies. I deeply resent the invasion of my privacy. It is well known that I do not care for babies or "Daddy books" and only purchased my copy as an insulting gag gift for a friend of mine who has since decided against adoption. What's worse, unlike "Baby" Fulghum's other books, this one did not even come with one of those free toys. Total rip.

5-0 out of 5 stars My friends in Tulsa love it!
Children are a joy and a blessing, but raising them can be a seemingly unending nightmare. So thank God for Robert Fulghum's uncommonly talented son Hunter. I grew up in family-oriented Tulsa, Oklahoma, but I learned nothing about child-rearing from the experience. A wise, slapstick-style child-rearing guide for my father might have changed so many things. Lucky for one and all that Hunter's diapers were changed by such a gifted, gifted man. Thank you, Fulghums!

5-0 out of 5 stars Ain't that the truth
Speaking as someone with two children (ages 11 and 13, going on 20 and 37 respectively), I think this book nails the experience. From the goo children emit to the sulks they pitch at you, this one will make you laugh about it -- even if you can't change the facts of life. ... Read more

Those who suspect their parents took secret courses on "How to Confuse and Conquer with Enigmatic Utterances" won't be surprised to learn there are indeed clandestine languages for parents.And here are the books that decipher them.Finally, Dad's ambiguous responses like "Go ask your mother," cryptic commands such as "Don't make me pull this car over," and the puzzling question, "Do you think I'm made of money?" are explained in comic detail in this handy reference.And Mom's warnings, "Don't you ever let me catch you doing that again!" (implying that you can do it, I just don't want to find out about it) and probes, "Is that what you're going to wear?" are made clear.(Translation of the Last Momism: "I wouldn't be caught DEAD in that outfit.")Dadism and Momisms compile these silly turns of phrases handed down from time immemorial.Interpreted for the new century, each one is translated with tongue-in-cheek humor and insight. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow! I thought only my dad said these things...
With father's Day just around the corner, I have been keeping an eye out for something for my pop. I found the funniest book called, "Dad-isms." It was great reading through it and hearing all the things that used to come out of my own dad's mouth. The book tells you of a phrase you may have heard from your own, but what he really meant by the statement. One of my favorites was a phrase that went something like, "turn that racket down in there." But what he really meant was, "turn down your music, I can't hear the TV." And what about this warning, "Don't you ever let me catch you doing that again!" That simply meant, "you can do it, I just don't want to find out about it." It's hilarious. ... Read more

Rule #1 in the parenting handbook: "Keep 'em off guard." Then along comes Cathy Hamilton (a forty-something mother of two, by the way) who blows the whole cover for fatherdom. Okay, Dad will still have a trick or two up his sleeve, but Dadgummit goes a long way toward giving the "other side" some boisterously entertaining explanations about parental messages. Consider the author's take on this dadism: "Let's nip this in the bud right now." Dads love nipping things in the bud. Some dads could go around bud-nipping all day. Among the most nippable . . . cussing, budding young romance, and a daughter's dreams of becoming a Vegas showgirl. Dadgummit knows just where Dad is coming from . . . and fatherhood will never be the same.

If someone took a hose and cleaned this up, it wouldn't be nearly as funny. Don't worry. If you accidentally leave it on your coffee table, even a smart eight-year-old won't get the humor. It's oblique, salty and funny as heck.

I had no intentions of buying this book. I picked it up because it was sitting by the register at the book store. I began reading it, and I immeditately cracked up for about 15 minutes until the clerk suggested I buy it. I don't laugh at stupid things (at least not usually...okay, I do...but this isn't stupid; it's clever).

The quirky cast of characters includes: the daughter who thinks she's related to an imaginary family of rabbits; the son who recites entire scenes (not just lines) from movies; the sister who makes pretty designs with the ovals of a bubble sheet during a test instead of answering the questions; and the grandmother who fixes tuna fish and jellybean sandwiches for lunch!

Reading these unbelieveable (but true!) stories will not only help you appreciate your own family, but also give you an informal introduction to the world of giftedness. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars New test for giftedness!
Thanks to Karen Isaacson, we won't need standardized tests to see if children, or their entire families, belong in a gifted program. All we have to do is have them read this book, and wait. If, within minutes, the parent is on the floor hysterically laughing, "I'm not the only one! I'm not the only one!".. her kid gets in the program. As I read this thoroughly enjoyable book I kept wondering how she managed to hide the surveillance equipment she must have installed in my house while MY kids were growing up. Her relaxed, delightful point of view is a gem in this over stressed,what-if-my-kid-isn't-president, panic stricken world of education and parenting. Run, don't walk, to buy this book. Even before you wipe the two pounds of peanut butter off the carpet the kids used in their anti-friction experiment.Especially before you find out which kid did it this time.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Delightful Read!
I really enjoyed this book. Once you pick it up, you'll find it difficult to put down. This book is helpful and humorous at the same time. It raises the awareness of the dilemas that gifted children (and their parents) often face in school and at home, in an engaging way. Ms. Isaacson has the uncanny ability to make any parent reflect on the uniqueness of their own children. Reading this book gave me a greater appreciation for my own children. Parents and teachers alike, would benefit from reading this laugh-out-loud book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't read Rainin' Brains in a quiet place...
... Because you're going to laugh out loud! Issacson offers a hilarious look at life in a gifted family, with five kids, each as different yet challanging as the one before. From cleaning the kitchen to playing with their food, these kids manage to find fun whatever they do.

My husband accused me of "having entirely too much fun" while reading this book. And he's right - it's great fun! But don't let the kids read it... they might get even more "good" ideas of tricks to play on you!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read!
This book was not only hilarious, but gave me a greater appreciation for my own smart yet nutty family. The authors descriptive words puts you right into her world of gifted characters and lets you laugh right along with her.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lighthearted reflections on family life in general
Raisin' Brains: Surviving My Smart Family by Karen L. J.

Karen's efforts to keep up with everything from a son who starts reading in infancy, to a grandmother who enjoys singing lullabies about worms, makes for whimsical, lighthearted reflections on family life in general, and the parenting of gifted children in particular.

1-0 out of 5 stars Abusive Parenting Methods
I am shocked that any health professional would recommend this ... collection of parenting activities (organized like a recipe book). Apparently St.Clair's basic idea is that parents can build trust with their children by humiliating them and by acting irrationally and unpredictably. St. Clair promotes the notion that home life is a game that parents must win and children must lose. This is just more abusive nonsense from the "Holding Therapy" cult.

1-0 out of 5 stars Probation, Community service, Death
In 2001, the book's author was sentenced to probation and community service as her penalty in the "rebirthing therapy" death of Candace Newmaker. Enough said to be very wary of the contents of this book and the mind that wrote it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Parenting Guide
As a psychologist, parent and foster parent I found this book to be a wonderful resource. This book consists of 99 specific activities / responses for a wide variety of situations. This is a "must have" for parents dealing with children with any emotional or behavioral problems. It is also a great book for anyone wishing to improve their parenting skills. With ideas ranging from "SLOW PRACTICE" for those kids who express their passive aggressive tendencies by doing things purposely slowly to "MUMBLE AWAY" for those kids who you have to ask to repeat themselves - repeatedly. This book should be named "99 Ways To Drive Your Child Sane" (Without Going Crazy). I strongly recommend it to parents of all children. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Confusing to someone new to the craft
Being new to the craft, this really confused me. To me alot of the spells seemed to be on the edge of taking anothers free will.
Then, again, that's just my opinoin.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great books for different Witches
I have not bought any of these books but have graced alot of Deborah Grays books and the book store and I think they are great. Even though I am more from a Wiccan background sometimes different spells are needed at different times and its really up to each individual to use their judgement when it comes to casting gray area spells. No I do not agree with every spell she may represent and if so then I won't do it. But alot of her spells are very ethical and fun as I have read quite a few of them. There have been spells in alot of strictly "wicca" books that I don't care for. To each is his/her own!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun for anyone!
I have all of this Australian witches books. They are funny, insightful and downright helpful. This latest one is hilarious. Primarily geared toward women, but men can use them too!

5-0 out of 5 stars What to Expect...this is not
...but a tongue-in-cheek, unpretentious and very funny guide to the perils of fatherhood, it is. Not really PRACTICAL, in fact not at all practical, but a good little gift for anyone who knows a first-time "expectant father" with a sense of humor. The part about the octopus, the baby, and the sweater really cracked me up. My brother-in-law gave it to me before the birth of our child and while I still don't like him much at least now I know we can laugh at the same things.... ... Read more
