The author collected through her blog an amazing assortment of handwritten notes to roommates, spouses, and friends. This little book shows her "best of the best" collection. Dirty dishes and messy living situations seem to be the bane of many frustrated writers' notes. Some of the writers should live alone in an isolated cave if they want the perfect environment...

Good book to read while riding home on the bus or between important phone calls at the office. The content is awesome and since each 'note' is independent of the previous one, it's easy to quickly put aside when your children run inside to interrupt you with a barrage of questions!

In all honesty, it was a great little read that can be read in a single sitting. This book is for people needing a mental break where they can chuckle and laugh.

One of the funniest books ever. It's hard to believe roommates and co-workers could cause so much trouble!
