Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A humor book inspired by the blog of the same name, Things I Want to Punch in the Face means: 1) a humorous way to convey annoyance or frustration over those little things in life that bug; 2) petty peeves warranting a tongue-in- cheek lashing but involving no physical retribution, 3) an expression made wildly popular by the blog, Things I Want to Punch in the Face. Synonyms: chap your hide, get your goat, rub the wrong way. Antonyms: make out with, love so much you should marry it, float your boat, blow your skirt up.

Synopsis:

Jennifer Worick had a bad day. And then a bad week. She channeled her aggravation into creating the blog Things I Want to Punch in the Face, which became a sensation. Although her bad week passed, she has continued to take note of the little irritations that torment us all daily. Old guys with ponytails. 20-minute coffee prep. Bizspeak. Vanity plates. Celebrity baby names. Excessive punctuation. It's astounding how the little things can drive a person insane.

Synopsis:

A small, modestly priced humor book with tremendous gift appeal and a strong graphic design by an award-winning designer.

Synopsis:

Inspired by the popular blog of the same name, Things I Want to Punch in the Face takes aim at the things that chap Jennifer Woricks hide, from old-guy ponytails to shoeless households, naked pregnancy portraits to man caves, Renaissance faires to people who dont believe in TV. Its a colorful, laugh-out-loud funny gift book at a very friendly price, from the author responsible for such hit titles as Nancy Drews Guide to Life and the Worst-Case Scenario Handbook: Dating and Sex.
