    How to identify moms in the wild with this hilarious book of personality profiles—from the Chardonnay Mom to the Breastfeeding Supremist Mom.  The Mommy Mafia is the Urban Dictionary of Mothers—think of it as Mommy profiling. The politics of motherhood is complicated, yet also highly amusing. If motherhood is akin to the Mafia, which “family” do you belong to? Are you the Olympic Mom (“Your kid isn’t walking yet? Wow, he’s so slow! My Thomas walked at nine months!”), so competitive she grills other Moms as to the duration of her labor or her child’s milestones? Or are you the ER Mom, who takes her offspring to the hospital at the first sign of a sniffle? Maybe you’re Organic Mom (“Don’t you realize cow’s milk is filled with cancer-causing chemicals?”) or Horny Mom (“Isn’t motherhood the best time to start sleeping around?”) or Boot Camp Mom, who runs her kids’ lives to a strict routine.  The Mommy Mafia features more than seventy types of Moms, and whether you are one of these Moms, are related to one, or are friends with one . . . it’s time mothers laughed at themselves!

    “Humor abounds” in this collection of western-style wit and wisdom by the author of the classicDon’t Squat with Your Spurs On (Midwest Book Review).  It’s easy to win at solitaire, just shoot all the witnesses.  The shallower the stream, the louder the babble.  Don’t worry too much about what other people think about you. If they’re giving you any thought at all, they’re probably wondering what you think about them.   The perfect companion for a pit stop at the little wood shack out back (or anywhere else), The Outhouse Reader is filled with quick quips and wise advice, from “Most things get better. In fact, most things get better by the next morning” to “A true friend, if he can't get you out of jail, will get in there with you.” It’s a treasury of funny, thought-provoking tidbits to keep you laughing till the cows come home!
