I never write reviews but this was horrible. I couldn't relate to these women. In fact, I hated them. If you are spoiled, self-absorbed and have a sport a healthy dose of self entitlement you may like this book. It was like a marathon of that Housewives of New York City reality show. Less important but equally annoying was the narration.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Mostly, the essays are honest, well written, and revealing. A few are whiny and annoying. To the woman whose chief complaint is that her husband does more than his share: OMG! Are you nuts?
If you’ve listened to books by the authors before, how does this one compare?
Did Bitch in the House inspire you to do anything?
Yes, the essays are thought provoking, so that was inspiring, but the experience of listening to only half of what I know to be The Entire Book also now inspires me to bitch that what is advertised as unabridged is not; it's less than half the book.
Any additional comments?
Good grief, where's the rest of the book???
