When you buy a book titled, "Potty Training Sucks...," the boldness of that title tends to give you the impression that the author feels your pain...that she's a sympathizer and gets where you are coming from - the frustration, the daily power struggles, the endless piles of soiled pants and sheets...and all those desperation bribes that have done nothing more than turn your tike into a skilled embezzler. You might even assume that the book was written with the intent of being your salvation - o ...more
Very easy and fluffy. Read in one evening. I think this was a good choice for the first book in my "information gathering" for the upcoming baby stage. Like other reviews have said, not a lot of specifics in this book. It did confirm though, that I think we are at least several months away from really starting.

I really enjoyed this book. It was very entertaining, probably more entertaining then instructional. It takes all the pressure off that many people associate with potty training...very laid back & fun read! It took away a lot anxiety for this next milestone.

I gleaned no useful information from this book whatsoever, other than how to cook a beautiful lobster dinner. And I live in Louisiana, so obtaining a lobster in the first place is next to impossible. Luckily I'd only purchased this book for a quarter; otherwise, I'd be pretty "pissed". ;(

This book is very funny.. that's about it.. I didn't glean any particular wisdom but the author is totally hilarious. I skimmed the book and she gave me some great laughs. She seems like someone I'd hang around!

Very funny, but not one certain potty training strategy. More of a review of a variety of potty training ideas and theories.

Definately has some helpful advice in it, but is mostly a humerous and lighthearted book that really does feel my "potty training pain"

I used to write for TV but when I became pregnant, I didn't want to work the long hours anymore. Besides, once I realized that pregnancy sucks, it gave me the perfect fodder for my first book entitled, "Pregnancy Sucks: What to do When Your Miracle Makes you Miserable". That led to ten other books in the Sucks series, plus my new book, "The Stay-at-Home Martyr".
