I decided to read this book just based on the title.

And as the title may suggest, it's an *extremely* frank account of a Los Angeles marriage, written in a he-says, she-says style. While often the honesty borders on over-sharing, more often, I found the writing hilarious and their banter endearing. There's a raw truth running behind the witty one-liners, and I think these two hit a nerve about how trying it can be to blend two personalities into one harmonious life.

Sometimes, you just have to wonder how these two haven't killed each other and how much is being exaggerated for comedic value. It doesn't seem possible to have that much drama day-to-day.

I'd recommend this if you're in the mood for a light read about relationships that's funny, biting, and totally over-the-top...and if you think if you can get past them being ridiculous.
