Book Review: The #Mancode: Exposed by @RachelintheOC

I just finished reading The Mancode: Exposed by Rachel Thompson. I stumbled on her book when adding new books to my Kindle Fire. It was so entertaining that I finished it in one day!

Rachel, or on Twitter as she is called @RachelintheOC, has such a sense of humor that you can't help but laugh while you are reading her descriptions!  The girl used to sell Trojan condoms, if that tells you anything!

I used to touch penises for a living, but that is another story at another time! So I know you can get pretty #Snarky when dealing with anything related to those ole' things!

You actually can read this book in any order, brilliant! However, I decided to read from the beginning because my mind needs some kind of order! In each section Rachel Deconstructs, which means she is going to explain using her home life, personal experiences and husband as examples!

I do have to mention that when reading Lime in the Coconut, I couldn't get that song out of my head! So here it is just for your enjoyment! You will know what I mean when you read her book!

Picture this, I was literally humming the song, bobbing my head from side to side, Kindle Fire in hand reading, my husband looks over and does that damn #eyeroll thing.....  As Rachel would say, So #Mancode!

The entire book is so funny and hilarious. I can't pick just one chapter as my favorite.  However, If I Had a Hammer should be taught to boys during their sex education class in school!  Here is a snipett, **Guys, if your chick says I'm fine after you've stolen her time-of-the-month chocolate donut, run. Run away.**

This is a must read and I can't wait to read all of her other books!

Here is Rachel's page on Amazon:

I'm a chick who writes stuff that makes you laugh.
My book A Walk In The Snark hit #1 on the Kindle
Motherhood list this past September (do you think
they know I talk about sex? Shhh.) It's since hit 
about oh, SEVEN more times. #woot!
I've been nominated for Funniest Blog, Best
Humor Writer & Redhead Who Makes a Killer
Dirty Martini (okay, I made the last one up, 
but it's true. Honest.)
I released The Mancode: Exposed right after
Thanksgiving 2011!  Two books of snarky goodness, baby.  
I've been told I write in the style of that Dickens guy. Kidding.
I'm a mom, a wife, and a recovering pharmaceuticals rep.  It's been
a long process but I'm okay, thanks.  
I also used to sell Trojan brand condoms.  Yeah, it's hilarious, 
I know. I did it for three years way back when and I was their 
top salesperson in the Western Region, a dubious honor at best. 
My number-one customer was the Mustang Ranch.  No, seriously. 
The Mustang Ranch.  I couldn't make stuff like that up.
