Don't Say I Didn't Warn You - Kids, Carbs, and the Coming Hormonal Apocalypse - Anita Renfroe's latest book is a must read!
offers her funny, outrageous—and on the money—take on all things female
Kids, Carbs, and the Coming Hormonal Apocalypse
By Anita Renfroe
She’s no June Cleaver. She doesn’t claim to be Carol Brady. But she can sing everything a mother says to her children in a single day to the tune of “The William Tell Overture” in just two minutes and fifty-five seconds. Described as “this generation’s Erma Bombeck,” Good Morning America contributor and YouTube sensation Anita Renfroe has no problem telling it like it is, and she does so in her hilarious new book, DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU: Kids, Carbs, and the Coming Hormonal Apocalypse (Voice; September 29, 2009; Hardcover; $22.99).
In her irreverent collection of essays, this stand-up comedian and mother of three turns her boldly accurate comic eye to female conditions. In chapters with names like “To Regift or Not to Regift (Or, If Only the Wise Men Had Known About Gift Cards)” and “Playing Favorites (Or, As a Matter of Fact, I Do Love Your Brother More),” she dares to speak what other women are thinking—but cannot say out loud. Renfroe offers up her deeply funny and relatable takes on everything from weddings to mammograms to every woman’s never-ending quest for just one good photo of herself.
Renfroe’s mission is to make every woman feel empowered; her motto echoes the phrase “If you’ve got it, flaunt it!” She affirms that you are not alone in navigating trying circumstances that every woman undoubtedly experiences at some point in her life, such as:
· Fear of fat…and love of sweets
· The great sport of grocery-store shopping
· Retail therapy and our need for the perfect purse
· Facing age head-on and embracing your best self
In DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU, Renfroe is a true performer. Well-loved by women’s groups across the country even before YouTube delivered her infectious stand-up routines, her exceptionally sharp wit and boundless creativity have engaged millions of viewers—and there is no doubt that readers will be captivated as well.
All too often, we walk on eggshells. We keep our thoughts to ourselves so as not to offend others. DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU reminds us all to take ourselves less seriously. Simultaneously uproarious and honest, this virtuoso performance will establish Renfroe as a comedic voice to be contended with: what she says, goes. So, don’t say we didn’t warn you.
