It's not as funny as I'd hoped for, but I did giggle a couple of times.

Very funny book, with true life experiences. As some comedians have said you can't make up funnier stuff than true life events. Our book club read this book February 2014. I recommend this book for all people especially women >40. Younger than 40 probably won't appreciate the events to come in their lives or see them as humorous. My "Opinion".

Liz Curtis Higgs makes you enjoy a trip in a small car in Scotland. Her view of her travels is one of her funniest looks a life in the wrong lane. This is thoroughly enjoyable and the best book to read when in need of a laugh!

It was good, clean humor! True stories from life! I enjoyed it quite a bit. About 1/3 of the book is about the different humor types...sunny, cloudy, stormy, and foggy. The way they laugh, and the humor they enjoy corresponds with what type they are.

It is a good book. It has some funny things and different humor. Though some things weren't so funny as much as just being there. It does have clean jokes but there are a few things that probably aren't so clean when you really think about them.

One of Liz Curtis Higgs older books I had recently heard about. Need a giggle or two .. you'll find it here.
This is a good beach read... not highly recomended for anywhere where you have to be quiet (i.e. libraries, airplanes,ect.) a funny feel good book with stories that most anyone can relate to.
