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!).

There can never be too many guides to staying married, especially when they're as funny and insightful as this one. The Fox News Channel broadcaster shares hilarious anecdotes from his twenty-year marriage, as well as tongue-in-cheek advice for men on staying out of trouble with their wives. Steve Doocy is a humble teacher with a big heart who speaks with zesty appreciation for his one and only; his speaking voice conveys a perspective that both men and women will enjoy. However, his exaggerated speaking style will seem overreaching to some and too often competes for attention with his ideas. But with snippets of advice from his calmer-sounding wife to keep things in perspective, the production ultimately entertains.
