Quotes & Awards

  • “Tasteful and useful, and with a great appendix of pickup lines, breakup lines, and all-purpose excuses, this is the book you need when you wake up next to someone whose name you can’t remember.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “As if reading from a driving manual, she tells listeners how to remove difficult articles of clothing, fake an orgasm, deal with a drunken date, handle a bad kisser and deliver a pick-up line. Wondering if your date is an ax murderer? Find out if he was sexually abused as a child and has an obsession with matches. Not sure of the gender of your date? Look at his or her hand and be suspicious of baggy clothing. Need to sober up fast? Avoid aspirin and drink lots of water. Although much of this advice sounds silly, the authors’ suggestions are completely serious, and Hamilton delivers them that way.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Alternately humorous and practical, the Survival Handbook veers into the bizarre while having the good sense to pepper that wit such nuggets as how to finagle a reservation, break up, and make up with your beloved, and dozens of other gems.”

    AudioFile

  • “Expertly read by Laura Hamilton, this amusing and, at times, scary book…offer[s] insights on many common and uncommon disasters that can occur when people date and enter into, or fall out of, relationships…While certainly the tone of the book makes for humorous listening, a lot of the advice is very sensible and covers issues not easily found in other resources.”
