Publisher's Summary

The Amy Binegar-Kimmes-Lyle Book of Failures is a funny memoir. If you have ever failed at love or finances, been fired, not fit in, self-diagnosed yourself with disorders and conditions, and/or said "I really need to get my s*** together", this is the book for you. 
You may appreciate your own dysfunction a little more as you take a journey through Amy’s debacles, including: “I Was Not Talking to You”, where Amy mistakes a handsome man waving at her as a potential suitor but in reality he was only trying to inform her that her belt was dragging on the freeway, and “In the Neighborhood”, where members of a cult moving in concurred with a suspicious decline in the cat population. You will relish the chapters entitled “Calls from Sharon”, where Amy’s best friend rants about her kids not getting a fair shot because public schools are "so political", as her OB/GYN reported her vagina was "too clean" and how the most eligible bachelor from 1982 married a whore. Enjoy “I’m Going to Kill You”, where Amy compares her lack of sleep from her husband’s snoring to CIA agents extracting secrets from a POW. Feel 20-32 percent better about your own life after reading “Getting Divorced Sucks”, where 911 was called after Amy had an adverse reaction from taking Xanax. 
The book has been featured on the WXIA-TV morning show Atlanta & Company, National Public Radio, LA talk radio show What Women Want, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Points North Magazine, Northside Woman Magazine, Just4Fun Radio, and Scoop OTP and as Rick Limpert's Kindle Book of the Week.

Got me giggling

I laughed many times while listening to this book. The scary thing is that I can relate to many of the "failures". It does make me realize that we are all in this together.

Can't stop laughing

What made the experience of listening to The Amy Binegar-Kimmes-Lyle Book of Failures the most enjoyable?

This book is pure entertainment—full of giggles and laughs and an escape from the mundane routine of the everyday existence we all suffer. The author has a talent for finding a humorous way to express the things we all sometimes feel but hesitate to say out loud. I am a fan of this lady’s style and sense of humor. I highly recommend this book. I listened to the audio edition and it was very well narrated with a pleasant voice and a smooth pace. Looking forward to more from this author.
