Two books in one!
Turns out that The Bitch In the House was only half the story. Daniel Jones, husband of Cathi Hanauer, has rallied the men for the "literary equivalent of The Full Monty," in which a group of thoughtful, passionate and often hilarious men lay it bare when it comes to their wives and girlfriends, their hopes and fears. Many of these husbands and fathers contemplate aspects of their personal lives they've never before revealed -- kicking open the door on their marriages and sex lives, their fathering and domestic conflicts, their most intimate relationships and situations.
Powerful, heartfelt and irreverent, this is a bold, unprecedented glimpse into the glaring truths of modern relationships.

This is one of those cleverly titled packages that work better in print than as an audiobook. A husband (Daniel Jones) and wife (Cathy Hanauer) capitalize on the success of Hanauer's tell-all women's essay compilation, THE BITCH IN THE HOUSE, with a new collection of essays read aloud by the mollified and mortified husbands living today's version of middle and upper-middle-class life. Most of these skilled writers (yet very unskilled readers) belong to the latte-and-angst club, questioning the balance in their marriages as they juggle home, job, kids, budget. Here's where the battle of the sexes meets yuppie hell...so if you love daytime talk shows, buy this audiobook immediately.
