"The grass is ablaze, the lawnmower blade dangles from a tree, and your frustrated husband is hiding in the garage. You (a) tell him you're going shopping, (b) ask him if everything's okay, or (c) sneak back into the house and pretend you didn't see him reading the instructions. Your wife says she's "fine" after an argument. You (a) assume she's fine, (b) go back to watching the game, or (c) duck and cover. If you don't know the answers to these questions, then this book is for you. Two of the South's funniest voices have come together to write this hilarious, heartfelt collection of essays about the nature of men and women. From keeping house to romance, from yard work to money, their fresh take on these common arguments will make you laugh out loud and maybe even instill a bit of insight when it comes to the opposite sex. Also covered are quite a few not-so-common squabbles, such as proper singing etiquette and hoarding mayonnaise jars. Written by best-selling humorist Melinda Rainey Thompson (SWAG: Southern Women Aging Gracefully and The SWAG Life) and award-winning magazine editor Morgan Murphy (Southern Living, Forbes, and Vanity Fair), I Love You--Now Hush is a pithy, gleeful read that encourages couples to laugh at their differences. I Love You--Now Hush was a 2010 ForeWord Reviews' Book of the Year winner and a 2011 Benjamin Franklin Award finalist, both in the Humor category."

Once I picked this book up I could not put it down. It is simply hilarious. I really like the way it is put together with the male and female point of view on various subjects. It reminds us of how truly different men and women are in the way we think. Read full review

This is so incredibly funny. Of course, in this "He Said/She Said" book Melinda wins all of the disagreements with Morgan. She is the woman, afterall! My husband read it and disagrees with me, however ... Read full review
