This is one of the funniest books I have ever read. It is so entertaining, that once you start reading it you can't put it down. It is so hysterically funny that you will find yourself laughing out loud. My husband does not read books for entertainment, but he kept hearing me laugh. He kept asking, what is so funny about that book, I told him, he had to read at least a few chapters to find out. Well, after he started reading it, he was hooked. He was laughing out loud and could not put the book down. Again, if you need some laughter in your life, read this book.
