Remember your first kiss? Your first crush? Your first date? Bill Cosby remembers his - and he's telling all! In Love and Marraige Cosby merrily tackles the "only subject that no one has ever been able to study for." From dating to mating, from scoring to snoring, from saying "I do" to claiming "she did," Love and Marriage offers a rollicking tour of the mysterious, magical, frequently frustrating, and often rocky road to romance.


Laugh along as Cosby recalls how he fumbled and stumbled in and out of infatuations with childhood sweethearts and teen dream girls - all of which was basic training for active duty in the battle of the sexes. Chuckle, too, as he courts coed cuties and swinging singles, then woos and weds his one and only - only to discover a brave new world of marital bliss, including great nights, great fights, in-laws, and kids.

This book is a collection of thoughts and ruminations by our favorite dad, Bill Cosby. Far from being just a guy who sells Jell-o and makes funny faces, Cosby is a talented writer. This reads more like a biography than his previous book, "Fatherhood," with Cosby telling about his early dates and courting his wife, all with his signature wit. You can practically hear him telling the stories, which is neat.

It'd be a sweet gift for Valentine's day, or any day someone needs a smile.

From Publishers Weekly
Cosby's Fatherhood and Time Flies remain popular and his new book may exceed even their sales. Once past the introduction by Dr. Alvin F. Toussaint--an unrequired nihil obstat to the contents--the reader will revel in Cosby's tender, ruefully funny recollections of amatory hits and misses. Beguiling in the manner of the entertainer who laughs mostly at himself, the anecdotes contrast his growing years in Philadelphia, where he was born in 1937, with today. Unlike a modern boy of 10, "transported by the ballad 'I Want Your Sex!' " the author writes, his own youth might have been lived in medieval days. A teenager when he felt the first erotic stirrings, Cosby confesses fumbling attempts on nubile girls and vying for stud status with bragging pals. He makes his joy palpable when he tells about meeting Camille Hanks, who became his wife 25 years ago, the woman who verifies to him that love and marriage go together, regardless of imperfections. 850,000 first printing; first serial to Good Housekeeping; Doubleday Book Club main selection; Literary Guild featured alternate; paperback rights to Bantam.
