Praise for Sh*tty Mom:

“A totally hilarious and uncensored look at some of the impossible situations we mothers find ourselves in.” —TheBump.com

“Smartly, brashly, nearly criminally funny. It also—no small thing—carries a powerful message to all parents, but especially moms, that distilled to its essence is this: chill.” —Time.com

“As the attachment parenting craze has hit a zenith in American culture, four very funny moms—comedy writers, TV producers, and a novelist—blast open a long-locked safe filled with frustrations faced by all modern mothers, with sympathetic and sharp humor. . . . The authors’ unfiltered candor is a welcome reminder for readers that they're not alone. . . .” —Publishers Weekly starred review

“Both funny and practical.” —Brooklyn Based.net

"Hilariously entertaining. A must-read survivor's guide for every mother!"
--Christy Turlington Burns, founder of Every Mother Counts

“Finally, Sh*tty Mom does for motherhood what Chelsea Handler does for female scatology. It’s a long overdue little burst of honesty from the supposed minority of mothers who are, in fact, not that maternal. . . . After a generation of supermoms one-upping each other in dead earnest on playgrounds and schoolyards, the emerging mass appeal of Sh*tty Mom is a welcome relief.” —The New York Observer

"Witty, wise, and wicked! With tongue planted firmly in cheek, these savvy moms dispense some much needed comic relief about raising kids in our crazy culture."?
--Dr. Harvey Karp, bestselling author of The Happiest Baby on the Block

“The most inappropriate parenting book I've ever read. Loved it. The perfect book for any mother who wants to laugh instead of cry at those cringe-worthy moments and the universal indignities we experience on a daily basis.”
--Jessica Seinfeld, bestselling cookbook author and founder of Baby Buggy

“An antidote to the hostage situation that is modern parenting…subversive, delicious, and spit-out-your-latte funny.”
--Pamela Druckerman, bestselling author of Bringing Up Bebe

Harry Fisch,
"Harry Fisch knows more about sex than anyone on earth, with the possible exception of Colin Farrell. This book will improve your love life. You should trust Harry Fisch. I do, and there are few I'd let anywhere near that subject."—A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Living Biblically and Drop Dead Healthy

Fire Up Your Sex Life and Your Relationship with This Smart, Refreshingly Candid Guide from Dr. Harry Fisch.

Let's be honest: If it's been years since you had the "talk," it's going to show—in the bedroom and out. As Dr. Fisch, a sexual health and fertility expert at Cornell Medical College and a hit radio talk show host, discovered, lots of couples are having lots of sex...but that doesn't mean they're any good at it. Or satisfied. But life between the sheets doesn't have to be lackluster!

In The New Naked, Dr. Fisch brings you the ultimate sex education for grown-ups. This indispensable guide:

•Helps couples master bedroom basics they were never taught in any health class
•Lays bare both men's and women's various sexual needs and perceptions
•Shows couples how to decode their partner's sex speak, navigate the risky business of porn, medical issues, and bad bedroom habits, and fulfill each other's fantasies.
•Unlocks the secrets to successful foreplay with Dr. Fisch's unique LSD system (Listening + Security + Desire), a three-step approach to put the sizzle back in your sexy time!

Packed with easy-to-follow advice and stories from real couples, The New Naked will prime you for the greatest sex of your life—and the happiest relationship too.
