Jen Lancaster was living the sweet life-until real life kicked her to the curb.

She had the perfect man, the perfect job-hell, she had the perfect life-and there was no reason to think it wouldn't last. Or maybe there was, but Jen Lancaster was too busy being manicured, pedicured, highlighted, and generally adored to notice.

This is the smart-mouthed, soul-searching story of a woman trying to figure out what happens next when she's gone from six figures to unemployment checks and she stops to reconsider some of the less-than-rosy attitudes and values she thought she'd never have to answer for when times were good.

Filled with caustic wit and unusual insight, it's a rollicking read as speedy and unpredictable as the trajectory of a burst balloon.

Loved the title. The book, not so much. Maybe you have to be in the mood for this kind of read. I'll try it again on a different day.

This book was funny, interesting and relevant. Read this if you are looking for something unique and humerous, it is a great upbeat beach read. Her humor is obnoxious, loud and pretentious, but it is a realistic look at today's unemployed professionals. I look forward to reading more from this author.

I liked this book so much I bought it. Resonates for newly unemployed folks and love her sarcastic sense of humor. You will either love this or hate it.

Plain and simple, I love Jen Lancaster. She is funny, self-deprecating and all around an everywoman for the millennium.

This book had me laughing out loud. I've read all of her books and they're all great but this first one is probably my favorite.
