9780061242595: The Mr. & Mrs. Happy Handbook LP

Ever since Eve asked Adam, "Do I look fat in this fig leaf?" it's been apparent that men don't know how to handle women.

In MR. & MRS. HAPPY HANDBOOK, Steve Doocy will attempt to give all men and women answers to the questions that arise in their relationships (to the question above, the answer, clearly is "No hablo ingles"). This will be a funny, provocative, and yet hopeful look at husbands and wives. Riffing on everything from the first date, first kiss, to last rites, Doocy talks about the crazy arcs that each relationship takes–from dating, proposing, wedding, honeymooning, being married, having kids, to making it work (so you don't need a chapter on community property). Doocy has been married for twenty years, but he's not declaring this a self–help book. It's more of a Don't Try This At Home book. Doocy's an expert on what not to do, because he's already done all the dumb stuff– and he's learned from his mistakes. Plus, for anything he has not learned, and for additional WMD (women, men, dating) brilliance, Doocy has included bits and pieces from his celebrity interviews, which will make the reader feel simpatico with the rich and famous (i.e., "Henry Kissinger and I have something in common–we don't know squat about chicks!).

Product Description:

Steve Doocy, co-host of Fox & Friends, who has been married twenty consecutive years, provides real slice of life stories on everything from early marriage, pregnancy, and the joys of child rearing, to sending your child to college and retirement.

The book can be used for its hilarious husband and wife wisdom, or if things aren't going well, it can be used as a flying projectile to get somebody's attention. This is not an advice book. It is a don't even think of trying this book. The author and his collection of friends and family have already discreetly made almost every conceivable marriage mistake, and it is their hope that this irreverent manual can save you the trouble of being an idiot on your own.

Most stories conclude with "corrections" from Doocy's real life wife Kathy, who after two decades of picking up his socks in the garage, has developed a zany sense of humor herself.

Let's face it, marriage is ridiculously hard, but laughing about it is now incredibly easy, with The Mr. & Mrs. Happy Handbook.
