From comparing notes with friends to conducting a survey that spread across the country, Merry Bloch Jones has been a collector of quirks and foibles - specifically the little, unexpected things men do that make their wives crazy. And what treasure she's found. Here, from hundreds of eager-to-share women (first names only, please), comes one juicy detail after the next, and a whimsically candid portrait of husbands in America. "He's CEO of his company. If anyone knew this, the stock would drop. He sleeps in his shorts, and every morning, when he takes them off to shower, he blows his nose in them and drops them on the bathroom floor."-Heather, Chicago, IL. "He used coupons to pay for our anniversary dinner."-Dolly, New York, NY. "He truly believes there's no such thing as a bad pun."-Eleanor, New Haven, CT. "Every night, settling in, he grunts.

From over 200 frank (and heroic) married women this is the real thing.115,000 copies in print.
