Great Advice and Funny to Boot! Apr 1, 2008
I absolutely laughed my way through this incredible array of funny, sometimes hard to believe stories that only a daughter or son-in-law can truly relate to. This incredible assortment of stories just goes to show how widespread an issue it is between extended families that are brought together by the institution of marriage. The differences in various cultural pursuits and general lack of commonalities makes this collection both humorous and poignant. This is a fantastic gift for ANY married couple. KUDOS to a job well done!!!

Good book for mother of the bride Feb 28, 2007
As a Mother of the Bride getting ready to join a new family, I found many of the quotes enlightening. Also, as a person who will be interacting with in-laws from a different culture I found the personal anecdotes written by the editor particularly relevant...
Hilarious look at in-laws Feb 27, 2007
I'm a fan of all the Hundreds of Heads guides (I'm on their mailing list to get early copies!) and this one rocks. It's filled with funny and helpful advice from the editor and the hundreds of contributors. I'm going to buy it for an upcoming bridal shower to comfort my friend who has a less than pleasant M.I.L!
