Wouldn't it be nice to read a book about relationships that made you laugh instead of point fingers? Now you can. Katherine Black, armed with her biting wit and in-your-face directness, takes on John Gray's over-simplified psycho-babble relationship books and delivers a knockout punch. Read why men couldn't possibly have come from Mars or any planet other than Uranus, how women are responsible for setting up civilization, and why men are inept when it comes to communicating with women. Ms. Black explains what men are trying to say, no matter how they're trying to say it. So if you're looking for a little reality, get ready for a wild ride as Katherine Black gets down and dirty in her hilarious and irreverent look at relationships! The difference between the eBook and the book in print is the paperback has the original illustrations by award-winning illustrator Peter J. Welling, who received a 2012 Storytelling World Award in Category One - Young Listeners, for his work on The Kvetch Who Stole Hanukkah, by Bill and Susan Isakoff Berlin.

"Get Real, Dr. Phil: Discrediting Television's Most Overrated Psychologist" is a satirical criticism of Dr. Phil McGraw and his pedestrian advice. I was kidnapped by terrorists, tied to a chair and forced to watch Dr. Phil's daytime TV program for more than three weeks before US commandos rescued me. Over the course of those three torturous weeks, I decided it was time someone put Dr. Phil in his place. While this book has an extensive amount of humor in it, including some R-rated content, I have attempted to offer actual insight and possible cures for problems that plague our society (such as EMDR therapy). Dr. Phil does not do this because he is just an entertainer. He may have a degree in psychology, but entertainment is his specialty. This book does what no one else has attempted to do: Force Dr. Phil into an early retirement by ridiculing and thoroughly discrediting television's most loved and hated psychologist.

Have you noticed that when you're in a bookstore, and you're reading a book of jokes or meditations or moving little "chicken-soup" stories or "deep thoughts," the first few in the book are very meaningful and funny and enjoyable? But when you buy the book and take it home, most the ones after that are really lame and just seem to be taking up space. So you have to ask yourself, what kind of a dope-jerk-moron am I for dishing out $11 dollars for this piece of crap? That won't happen with this book! John Sheirer looks at life's ordinary moments in extraordinary ways. On the surface, these essays are about reading a note written while falling asleep, cataloging the ways an athlete's body breaks down, missing the signs of flirting, facing a classroom full of bored students, daydreaming at a funeral, gazing into an under-construction restroom-and dozens of other everyday events. But these little subjects lead to some of life's most important themes, including love, loss, politics, education, family, death, parenthood, and tolerance. All the while, Sheirer's essays remain readable, delightful, optimistic, sometimes biting, and often laugh-out-loud funny.

This book is a self-help guide for anyone who has recently divorced, or has experienced a tough breakup. Author Chris Edwards says it's time to get back on your feet and back into the world of dating! But first, there are insights about your journey that need to be shared so that you can begin to get back to what really matters - having a great relationship. The book is very humorous and entertaining, yet the author finds a way to get across the seriousness and complexity of building a lasting relationship. The Hell with Mars and Venus, let's go to Uranus is a series of short stories and situations that deal with the many aspects of relationships. In particular, the book explores how differently the male and female think, and how we can all benefit once these differences are understood. These differences have come to be known as the Mars vs. Venus phenomenon. Yes, Mars is certainly a different planet than Venus! It is quite puzzling how two sexes of the same species can be so different. How can the same brain placed in two different genders think so differently?! The author, being recently divorced himself, describes his experiences while trying to re-enter the world of dating. Some of the stories are hilarious, while others are quite explicit in nature, and at times even erotic. Edwards definitely added some spice to this book! The book is written from a man's point of view, but women will also benefit from reading it. It will give them insight into the male mind, and some pointers on how to deal with men and their many "man-code secrets" (sorry guys). That may be of some interest to women. He also describes some proven techniques of how to approach women, gain their attention and trust, and how to get together with them in the best ways possible. You will find this book informative, humorous and very entertaining! Written in his witty and colorful style, the author tries to bridge that gap between Mars and Venus, and head straight towards Uranus, where he claims is the place we can all be happy! This book is intended for mature audiences 17+, due to sexual situations.

The spontaneous quality of this book makes it especially informative and valuable, since it includes numerous insights and observations not found in more conventional presentations. As many reviewers have observed, the sections on precisely how to compare charts to analyze relationships and how to use the houses in such comparisons are completely unique and original contributions to the field of astrological psychology.

Gender isn't just about "male" or "female" anymore - if you have any doubts, just turn on your television. RuPaul is as familiar as tomato ketchup with national radio and television shows, and transgendered folk are as common to talk-shows as screaming and yelling. But if the popularization of gender bending is revealing that "male" and "female" aren't enough, where are we supposed to go from here? Cultural theorists have written loads of smart but difficult-to-fathom texts on gender, but none provide a hands-on, accessible guide to having your own unique gender. With My Gender Workbook, Kate Bornstein brings theory down to Earth and provides a practical approach to living with or without a gender. Bornstein starts from the premise that there are not just two genders performed in today's world, but countless genders lumped under the two-gender framework. Using a unique, deceptively simple and always entertaining workbook format, Bornstein gently but firmly guides you to discover your own unique gender identity. Whether she's using the USFDA's food group triangle to explain gender, or quoting one-liners from real "gender transgressors", Bornstein's first and foremost concern is making information on gender bending truly accessible. With quizzes and exercises that determine how much of a man or woman you are, My Gender Workbook gives you the tools to reach whatever point you desire on the gender continuum. Bornstein also takes aim at the recent flurry of books that attempt to naturalize gender difference, and puts books like Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus squarely where they belong: on Uranus. If you don't think you are transgendered when you sit down to read this book, you will be by the time you finish it!

The New York Times–bestselling author’s classic guide to astrology: “What makes Sun Signs different is that much of the writing is done with humor” (The Boston Globe). Before 1968, astrology as we know it had a very limited following in the United States and around the world. The publication of Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs changed that forever. Newspapers began running astrology columns, and soon, an increasing number of people knew their sign (as well as yours) and began to study astrological tendencies. Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs quickly established itself as the worldwide introductory bible to astrology for beginner and expert alike. The book’s simple organizational technique made it easy for everyone to follow and understand themselves and others, sign-by-sign. This updated edition of the groundbreaking classic is an enjoyable way to discover the world of astrology today.
