When does 1 + 1 = 3 (or more)? When you've got a baby on the way.

Part of that new math, says number-one New York Times best-selling author Jill Conner Browne, whom USA Today calls just plain funny, includes the addition of an outsize sense of humor to balance the equation of your growing family.

The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit is a hilarious (though not scientifically tested) wink at the time-honored mysteries of parenting, for anybody who has ever had a kid or has ever known one, knows that the experience is neither fun nor profitable - so, you might as well laugh!

As each generation begins its hopeful, happy, and, yes, sometimes harrowing journey together as Parent and Child, together they spawn a new body of knowledge, the nuances of which will elude the Experts every time.

Here are stories of the things we do for Mother Love - or the most incredibly full-time volunteer job ever - and tips guaranteed not to be found in any other parenting guide.

  • How to Talk to a Pregnant Woman
  • How the Diamonds on Delivery Policy Can Speed Up the Labor Nature Intended
  • Why a Good Mother Is Always Adept at Subterfuge
  • The List of Things You Wouldn't Think You Would Have to Tell Kids Not to Do
  • Why Mothers of Sons Can Never Retire
  • Why, for Parents, It's Just a Short Drive to the Poorhouse

    The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children for Fun and Profit will have everyone who's ever been a parent (or ever thought of becoming one, or been a child, or is still one) giggling and grinning (no small feat) through those child-bearing years...and beyond.

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neesha | 2/19/2014

      " Very entertaining, especially if you're a new parent. There are some warnings in this book that I will take into account for sure. :-) "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 2/4/2014

      " Funny, very funny, but a little crude "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Traci Harsha | 1/24/2014

      " laugh out loud,funny, mommy book. "

    • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allison | 1/20/2014

      " It was ok, I was very distracted by al the cussing. It is possible to be funny without "f-bombs". "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/16/2014

      " Not as engaging as her other SPQ books. Also, her humorous overview of parenting sometimes veers off into rants about specific parenting methods, ie: whether or not to let children "cry it out." Still fun, and my husband is now enjoying it. More evily-delicious recipes included, too. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alycia | 1/9/2014

      " Fun, amusing book. I think virtually anyone would at least get one good smile out of this book. And perhaps a lot more. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Casandra | 1/9/2014

      " I listened to the audiobook of this too and she is very funny! "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sunbonnetquilter | 1/4/2014

      " this book was a two day laugh fest. This woman can really write some seriously good southern fun mom stuff. I loved it and can't recommend it highly enough "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 11/23/2013

      " Actually listened to this as books on CD. Not as good as her other guides. Becomes a bit repetitive mid-way through, but still a good time and always a great laugh. The author is the narrator on the books on CD, so it's fun to hear what she actually sounds like. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 10/23/2013

      " I liked all the stories about the kids. I especially liked her use of the word "igmo". It's been a long time since I've heard that. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Taryn | 10/11/2013

      " This author is a crack up and her perspective on the South makes me nostalgic for my days in Mississippi. The stories from other "Queens" about their little ones are laugh out loud funny! "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 9/27/2013

      " It was funny in some parts. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marjorie | 8/24/2013

      " As always,from this author, a good read. A little preachy, goddy at the end, but eh, small doses and it doesn't permeate the book. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 7/25/2013

      " This book is hilarious! I love the way Jill manages to share her stories with little life lessons and make me laugh out loud! "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 4/2/2013

      " This book is another funny one in the Sweet Potato Queens Series and anyone with children certainly can relate to it - anyone without children might either gain knowledge beforehand or maybe decide not to - anyway this book is a good as the Big Ass One "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 DarlingDork | 2/21/2013

      " I'm in this one. Love it. A little anecdote about me and my little dressed up princess is awesome! "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terrie | 2/2/2013

      " Some of it was just "meh" but the chapters entitled "Penii" and "Kids' Cussing" had me laughing out loud. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 12/22/2012

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne | 12/18/2012

      " I have read all the SPQ books and this is the best so far. I laughed until I cried and laughed some more. My favorite chapters were about Cussing (something I do on a regular basis) and Penii (something else I'm quite familiar with). "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maura | 10/20/2012

      " Silly but very endearing. How can you not love a writer who refers to her husband as "the cutest boy in the world?" "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charity | 8/29/2012

      " I love Jill Conner Browne, she is my kind of gal. This is a quick, fun and easy read that is sure to make you chuckle. Enjoy! "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 6/22/2012

      " Her language is worse in this book. I miss the first 2 - funny w/o very much cussin'. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica | 6/18/2012

      " Hilarious!!! I need to read all her books!!! "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 5/3/2011

      " After what I thought was a so-so novel, Jill Conner Browne is back to doing what she does best, non-fiction humor. I truly laughed out loud and related to the parenting stories in this latest Sweet Potato Queen book. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/10/2010

      " Browne writes with the kind of humour that is funny because it rings so true to life. I loved reading this- like chatting with a best friend, a very southern best friend. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 5/8/2010

      " Highly recommend listening to the book on CD read by the author. Highly irreverant. Loved it! "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 4/11/2010

      " This was pretty funny. Once I got over the cutesy Southern dialect I enjoyed the hilarity. It even comes with yummy-sounding recipes which I wish I could eat, and there are even a few practical tips, some of which I wish I had known about while my own kids were younger. "
