    It’s like gossip—what woman wouldn’t want to share all those little unexpected and invariably hilarious things men do that drive them crazy? Here, from hundreds of women (first names only, please), comes one juicy detail after the next, and it’s far beyond who left the toilet seat up: “He used coupons to pay for our anniversary dinner.” —Dolly, New York, NY “Every night, settling in, he grunts. I lie there waiting for him to quiet down. He sighs a long sigh and groans the same words every single night: ‘Oh, bed, bed, bed, bed, bed. Oh, bed, bed, bed, bed, bed. Oh, bed, bed, bed . . .’”—Ellen, Cleveland, OH Now, reissued with a fresh new cover that will heighten its appeal as the perfect impulse gift for any woman with a man in her life.

    "Hilarious!" -- Jake Tapper, ABC News"Hilarious!" -- Karen Tumulty, TIME"Hilarious!" -- Erin Moriarity, CBS NewsIn March of 2009, Doonesbury's intrepid journalist Roland Burton Hedley, III, opened a Twitter account and began to tweet. A lot. Four weeks later, a sampling of his 140-character missives was published in The New Yorker to great acclaim, and his posts were featured in a one-on-one "tweet-off" in the Columbia Journalism Review. Rushed into print, this groundbreaking volume is the first book-length Twitter collection by a single author. With dozens of Doonesbury strips and over 500 tweets, it presents the best of Hedley's work -- frontline micro-blogging from the self-anointed dean of Washington journotwits.Eight months into this project, author G.B. Trudeau can confirm that Twitter is a colossal sinkhole of time, but is gratified that he has found a way to monetize Roland's inane postings. (Follow Roland_Hedley.) When not writing comedy haiku on Twitter, Trudeau writes and draws the Pulitzer-prize-winning comic strip Doonesbury for 1100 newspapers worldwide, and lovingly curates his web presence at Doonesbury.com. He also hosts a milblog called The Sandbox.From the book:"Just spotted colleague Terry Moran in hall. Could wave, but easier to tweet. Hey, dude." 10:49 AM Mar 18th from Tweetdeck"Bumped into an old stalker of mine at Borders. She'd lost some weight and looked terrific, but I tweeted 911 anyway. Cops arrived from 3 states." 1:43 PM Mar7th from Blackberry"I refuse to apologize for making time for my kid's ball games, so I usually end up not going." 9:13 AM May 4th from web"Had close call watching MJ memorial service. They ended 'We are the World' before I could jimmy open my gun closet and blow my brains out." 12:33 PM Jul 7th from web"While speaking last night, someone threw panties on stage. Or boxers. Whatever. Times like that, always ask myself: What would The Boss do?" 5:13 PM Mar 12th from web"Kabul. Awakened by huge blast in hotel lobby. Suicide bomber blew up complimentary breakfast buffet. Off to find bagel." 3:14 PM Apr 8th from Tweetdeck"Accompanying HMMV patrol, used on-board computer to order Ab Rocket.

    For a couple of years, Shannon Sorrels has wanted to put out a book about fitness and weight management, a book that?s entertaining, motivating and a tad bit pointed, sort of a Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck meets Dr. Oz and Bob Greene -- definitely not your traditional this-is-how-to-lose-weight manual.A multi-degreed certified personal trainer and owner of an award-winning fitness training and nutrition studio in Phoenix, Sorrels has heard every excuse for not exercising and committing to a weight-management program: I?m too busy I?ve been out of town TV was good last night I had to go out to dinner a lot this week I?ve been sick The conference lunch had bad food choices My job is stressful I?m PMSing I?ve been busy I?m backed up (and I don?t mean scheduling) They made me a cake I?m too busy I need wine I?m genetically fat My family is sick I?m allergic to South African bee pollen My car is at the shop My dog is sick These are new shoes My metabolism thinks I?m starving My child failed a test Dunkin' Donuts had a sale I usually weigh-in in the morning The soft serve yogurt with Oreo toppings was for calcium I?m too busy My cat is sick Beer helps me relax My tree fell over I forgot to wash my workout clothes I?m tired These are different clothes My pinky nail fell off My fridge died; I had to eat it all The moon is out of phase with Jupiter I?m too busyAnd to the people who made those excuses, she has wanted to say, ??then just stay fat.?Sorrels knows of what she speaks. The word ?diet? has been part of her vocabulary since she was 9 years old. She spent many years upset, depressed, frustrated and confused. She lost weight and then gained it back. She read books, listened to tapes and joined programs. She fumbled around until she figured it out, and when she did she changed careers and started Physix.She also found a way to share her thoughts and frustrations: writing.This book isn?t a step-by-step weight-loss or fitness plan. There already are plenty of those, and Sorrels doesn?t agree with most of them anyway.Instead, it is intended to motivate and entertain, spur some heated debates ? and maybe even put an end to all of the excuses.
