Marital Advice to My Grandson, Joel by Peter Davidson

• R E V I E W •

There are a few things I love about this book. The first of those things is while some of his advise doesn’t apply to all women in general, there is an underline truth. I also loved the tone of the novel. I could totally hear a grandfather giving his grandson the advice of the novel.

It’s adorable.

Then there is the fact that I chuckled continuously. The oatmeal scenario had me in stitches. Oh, and the toilet-paper part – that was both funny and kind of evil genius. It was all great. There are so many fantastic tidbits in this book, that I even read some of them aloud to my sister, my daughter, and of course, my husband.

I highly recommend this book, not just to men, but to women as well. Ladies, this book is serious show that there are men out there who totally get it.

When my grandson, Joel, got engaged, I decided to jot down a few words of marital wisdom for him, based on my vast experience as a husband. Then I thought, why share this wisdom with only one person when I can share it with the whole world. So, I started a blog, listing new marital advice every week. As the popularity of the blog grew, people suggested that the material should be turned into a book and, well, here it is! Sure, much of the advice is off-the-wall and wacky, but it’s also an upbeat, humorous look at married life that any engaged or married person can relate to and will find insightful and fun to read. Even unmarried people can enjoy the book and, who knows, it might convince some of you to take the plunge, or perhaps confirm your belief that being single is a blessing. Advice to Joel, and to any man, includes: make sure that you buy a roll of electrical tape before you volunteer to do the vacuuming-and why, how to deal with your wife’s steely-eyed, clinched-jaw scowl, known as “The Look,” how to answer your wife’s questions such as, “Does this dress make my ass look big?,” the warning that your mouth will get you into a whole lot more trouble than your Willy ever will, and how to create the world’s most powerful anniversary card for your wife. Virtually all of the material in the book is presented in the form of upbeat stories, scenarios, and examples. This is not the type of advice that you’ll find in a textbook on marriage or in a book on marital relations written by some psychiatrist. This is the real stuff for real people. 

I received a copy via the author in exchange for an honest review.
