"Not only will this latest comic adventure appeal to the thousands of less-than-affluent urbanites who laughed through the duo's best-selling debut, The Nanny Diaries, but it would also seem to be a natural for young working women dealing with crazy bosses and shifting job descriptions." (Boston Globe)
"McLaughlin and Kraus deftly satirize postfeminist, postmodern, 21st-century America, using management jargon and hipster slang with equal precision....The authors have conjured up a vision of America that's just this side of dystopian, and their funhouse-mirror worldview generates its own strange suspense." (Booklist)

no idea what this was about
I enjoyed the entertainment value of the Nanny Diaries, but this book was completely lacking in entertainment. Half way through the book I began to wonder when the story would begin, and when it was over I wondered why I wasted so much time listening. The authors reading style was hard to follow, and although the book was face paced it was so fast that the you could barely figure out what was going on before the story took a 180. I'm still trying to figure out what the title of the book had to do with the story.

I have read Nanny Diaries three times... and each time I laugh more. This book was a huge flop- extremely disappointing. PLEASE DON'T GET IT!!! "Plot" if you can call it that, is tedious and hard to follow. There are no redeemable moments. Girl is an obnoxious and forgettable character, surrounding by co- characters of jerks, wimps and utterly indistinguishable people. Hopefully the witty team that brought us their first offering of Nanny will turn up again, because there is no trace of them in this pathetic offering.
