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 The Mr. & Mrs. Happy Handbook, Steve Doocy attempts 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 is a funny, provocative, and yet hopeful look at husbands and wives. Doocy riffs on everything from the first date and first kiss to last rites, and examines the crazy arcs that relationships take, from dating and proposing, through weddings and honeymooning, to being married, having kids, and making it work (so you won't need a chapter on community property). Doocy has been married for 20 years, but he's not declaring this a self-help book. It's more of a Don't Try This At Home book. He's an expert on what not to do, because he's already done all the dumb stuff and 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 listener feel simpatico with the rich and famous (e.g., Henry Kissinger and I have something in common: we don't know squat about chicks!).

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sanae | 1/31/2014

    " After reading Tales from the Dad Side, I was expecting a fun, light, easy-to-read book that I would enjoy. It was very entertaining, with practical advice in addition to many amusing anecdotes. There were a few times that I laughed out loud and, seeing as I read this at work, had to look around to make sure no one was there. A definite "yes" if you're considering some laughs. "

    " MOMS Club book selection (my choice) and it wasn't a "handbook" so much as a recollection of all the bad parenting decisions these two have made. Pretty disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannyboo | 12/3/2013

    " This book is a lot of random little anecdotes about married life. It's funny. It was a great "bathroom read" - something you can pick up, read for a few minutes, and then put down. "
