I agree with Katie and Andrea, this book was alright, but I just couldn't get into the humor. Some of it was rather trashy in my opinion and not something I would really expect to find in this book.

For example, the book gives you tips on how to get your way with anything, get anything you want at all, and get someone to do stuff for you. All you gotta do is get a group of your girl pals together, find a man, and tell him that all of you will do sexual favors for him if he does whatever you want.

I found that rather offensive and even though they say later on that they never live up to their part of the deal because what is the guy going to do about it..that's just wrong to do that to get someone to do favors for you because you're too lazy to do them yourself! Plus if women went around doing that around town they'd be called names and known for what they do.

So I found this book very vulgar and very nasty especially with the details it went into, and the women to be very snobbish as if no one could compete with them because they are goddesses in their own right, and no one could ever be what they are.

Do not let your teenagers read this book.

I found this book fun with the southern humor. It is to be read with this in mind--humor is what it is. It covers, What to eat when tragedy strikes, or just for entertainment. The five men you must have in your life at all times. Men who may need killing, quite frankly. The true magic words guaranteed to get any man to do your bidding. As another reviewer stated, this is not for kids. But i did enjoy this read.
