Peter Scott is the author of Well Groomed: A Wedding Planner for What’s- His-Name (And His Bride).From Publishers Weekly:
Scott follows up Well Groomed: A Wedding Planner for What's-His-Name (And His Bride) with this funny guide to what's next for newlyweds. He begins with the reality of life post-wedding (Chapter 1: "Why Did the Photographer Only Take Pictures of the Hot Bridesmaid?"), then moves on to family life, establishing a home together, balancing careers and celebrating anniversaries. Scott's a better comedian than psychologist: "One of you thinks, 'I'm sure Ted will figure out that I hate it when he burps in bed' while the other one thinks, 'How psyched is Liz that she's married to the burping champion?'" For all the refreshingly modern straight talk, there's a healthy dose of gender-role stereotyping too, and Scott courts controversy by giving advice separately to husbands and wives at the end of each chapter (he tends to tell husbands just to do what their wives want). Still, his blunt manner may prove helpful: "You can't take sides with anyone else in your family except each other. The old alliances are gone and it's time for a whole new game of Family Survivor."
