In this collection of 28 riotously funny and outrageously honest true-life tales, author Joni B. Cole manage to mingle low moments with high comedy; and social awkwardness with social observation.

The title essay was inspired when the author went to the bookstore and noticed all the best sellers about adorably naughty dogs. At first resentful of these other writers' successes (Unfortunately, my own career as an author had not been going so well these past couple years, not since I'd discovered the 'Watch Instantly' option on Netflix), Cole eventually realized she had her own bad-dog story to exploit - hers in the form of her adorable Chihuahua Bat, who won't be contained by invisible fencing and won't let anyone pet the family cat in peace. Yet from this huffish beginning evolved a tale as heartwarming as it is hilarious.

Self-aware, edgy, and masterfully crafted, this charismatic collection (including some heartbreakers) is for anyone who has ever felt over-attached to a pet, stalked her high school crush, said long goodbyes to loved ones, or tried to talk (and talk and talk) her way through the ups and downs of life. A wonderful new addition to a genre best described as humor that matters.

    " I am the audio-book narrator for "Another Bad Dog Book: Tales of Life, Love, and Neurotic Human Behavior" When I was first presented with the project I honestly never read the book. The publisher sent me a copy and I was moved to tears from either laughing too hard or deeply connecting to Joni's words as they took me though those nuances it seems each woman faces in getting older, losing a parent, looking back at first loves and discovering your insecurities and learning to overcoming the reality of being faced with who you are at this point of your life. Joni B. Cole's creative non-fiction reaches into the secret diary of a woman's heart and rips out a few pages of its reality, with humor, candor, and reflective memory. "

    " Funny, funny, funny. I got an advance reader copy and LOVED this book. So relatable and while I found myself laughing out loud at many of these essays, many were equally moving and all too human. Read this book! Then give it to ALL of your girlfriends. "
