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 audiobook.
"Jen Mann has an amazing way of telling stories that will make you cringe and burst out laughing at the same time." (Karen Alpert, author of I Heart My Little A-Holes)

Love the writing - HATE the narrator!
I'm a big fan of Jen Mann's blog. She's hysterical, and I was really excited to read this book. Unfortunately, the narration was horrible! I was really surprised to find out the author didn't do the narration herself, -a la Rachel Dratch or Amy Poehler - since it's autobiographical. When I first started listening, I was really disappointed and surprised to find that I didn't like the book. However, when I read a passage the old fashioned way, I loved it. This is one I'd skip on audio and buy in paper or Kindle.

Should have read it on 'paper'...
This narrator did not match the tone of the book whatsoever, her vocal talents should be limited to children's books. It was very over the top 'girly'...destroyed the book IMO.
No. I thought overall the storyline was somewhat relatable, however the author appeared to be outright lazy. This was definitely a 'first world problems' type of book.
Her voice was not right for this book.
That seen with the 'Agnes' girl who apparently has a history of violence and the school lets her get away with it.
