"You'd be crazy not to buy this book for the man in your life. And if he won't read it, serve it with bacon." -- Tim Allen "Morris and Lee are stupid and crazy so you don't have to be. The chapter on romance is a classic!" -- Gigi Levangie Grazer "This book is laugh-out-loud funny. And I don't just mean that 'lol' stuff. I actually laughed out loud. The surprise is that a book this funny is also so wise. It's bursting with real insights and universal truths. At the same time, it's deeply personal. Howard and Jenny spare us no intimate details of their relationship. You're reading it thinking, Should they be telling us this? We don't know them that well. But ultimately, you realize they're telling us about our crazy/stupid selves." -- David Crane, cocreator of "Friends" "What I love most about this hilarious battle of the sexes book is that while you're laughing it morphs into a great love story." -- Debra Messing "In this comic relationship self-help, semi-functional (but self-aware) couple Lee and Morris -- brandishing their credentials as "a major nut bag" and "a genuine dunce," respectively -- boil down the whole of male-female relationships to a simple, provocative statement, then go about examining the evidence and implications in an alternating, occasionally overlapping, he said-she said format...Morris and Lee have a warm, funny, playfully adversarial relationship that's both intimate and identifiable, and put through the paces in lengthy, laugh-out-loud dialogues. For all its self-deprecating comedy, this volume provides valuable insight into typical relationship potholes, including chick-flick conflict, the dreaded "Do I look fat?" conversation and chronic miscommunication." -- "Publishers Weekly"
