Love Him or Leave Him: But Don't Get Stuck with the Tab by Loni Love

Book: Love Him or Leave Him: But Don't Get Stuck
Author: Loni Love
Narrator (if applicable):n/a

Release date (if applicable): July 16, 2013

Synopsis: Ms. Love gives common sense advice for women in a "Dear Abby" format with one line quips thrown in. 
My rating: 5 Stars
My opinion: Being a fan of the "Chelsea Handler" group,  I recently had the opportunity to review Josh Wolf's new book, It Takes Balls. Both of these books have garnered VERY rare 5 star reviews from me, but for VERY different reasons. 

I have to be honest, I don't feel that the book jacket description for this book serves it justice. I found Ms. Love's book to be incredibly insightful with advice that woman are starving for in today's world of our young women putting their future, financial and otherwise on the back burner. While I didn't find the book as funny as I thought it would be, she makes up with it with incredibly enlightening and empowering advice targeted towards our young women. I firmly believe that this is a book that should be read by all young women and if this is the type of advice she gives, her upcoming show will be a huge success.

That isn't to say that this book isn't funny, but I found the advise given by her jaw dropping paramount to the humor. Ms. Love masterfully uses humor to support her very serious life advice masterfully.

I will say it again...this book truly was not what I was expecting. I have to be honest...I was expecting a funny (come on, Loni Love is HILARIOUS), but pretty brainless written stand-up routines. I guess the old adage of "never judge a book by its cover" (or judge a comedian by her routine) applies here!

Would I recommend? : Definitely for older high school girls, college aged young women. Now, I will say that some language and sexual reference was present so use best judgement.
Stand Alone or Part of a Series: Stand Alone
