by Elizabeth Downing Johnson: When I was first asked to review a book I was all, “Great! I can be a prestigious, well-respected, nay FEARED, literary critic. When I received the book I was all, “Crap. How am I going to explain my reading of this book to my husband?” It’s for ART, I told him. It’s for the INTERNET, I further told him. The book was sent for FREE, by the AUTHOR, who might one day be FAMOUS, and who included a handwritten note on a pink INDEX CARD. And he was all, “OK.” So, without further ado, here is my review of the book entitled 11 Points Guide to Hooking Up, by Sam Greenspan.
1. Even if you’re a person in a committed relationship (married even) you’ll find this book enjoyable. The author is knowledgeable, funny, and…funny. It’s a funny book. Who doesn’t like funny books? Some of the information will be a bit distasteful to you (especially if you’ve spent a lot of time protesting the elimination of your pubic hair, or protesting the idea of threesomes), but overall it is a solid read.
