#BookSale “People I Want to Punch in the Throat series Book 3” by Jen Mann

cover

If you’ve ever toiled away in a cubicle or sat through the third meeting your boss scheduled to plan another meeting, then you can relate to this book. 

This is the third book in Jen Mann’s New York Times best-selling People I Want to Punch in the Throat series and it will not disappoint!

This is the book you’ll want to accidentally on purpose leave on the desk of that blowhard in marketing. This is the book you’ll just happen to drop next the microwave in the break room hoping that Jan in accounting reads it before she reheats last night’s smelly leftovers for lunch. This is the book you’ll mail anonymously to your micromanaging boss with certain passages highlighted.

The Punch List:

  • Company-wide happy hours. I barely want to work with you. I definitely don’t want to have a beer with you.
  • The Ivy Leaguers. You do know every sentence doesn’t have to start with, “When I was at Princeton…”?
  • The martyrs. You get sick days—use one. Stop dragging your sniffling, snorting, coughing, sneezing ass to work and infecting the rest of us. You’re not that important.

Advance Praise for Working with People I Want to Punch in the Throat:

“I’m grateful to all of the people Jen Mann writes about in this book—the condescending managers, undermining editors, the plastic surgeon who helpfully offered free operations during a job interview, and the boss who fired her with a Post-It Note—because they made her into the rage-filled writer we all know and love.” – Jancee Dunn, author of How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids

“I connected with Jen Mann’s book more deeply than I’m comfortable with. It was brilliant and gross and hilarious and heartwarming and then hilarious again. I literally couldn’t put it down. For what it’s worth, the only book before this one that I read in one sitting without a break was Dances with Wolves. Don’t judge me.” – James Breakwell (@XplodingUnicorn), author of Only Dead on the Inside: A Parent’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse

If you have ever worked with someone who wanted to punch in the throat, this is the book for you.

Great for Parties! “I’d buy joke books and try doing them at school; I always had jokes. That would be my go-to thing at parties: I’d be able to get through them if I just told enough jokes. Otherwise, I wouldn’t end up talking to anybody.”  – Drew Carey

 

The jokes cover a broad range of topics and the reader will find a good one for just about any situation and conversation which will appeal for just about everyone. If you manage to memorize a few that would make it a handy addition to your arsenal of ice-breakers and conversation-rekindlers in case the situation seems completely frozen and awkward.

Excerpt: An international flight from Asia to the US was carrying 198 passengers but the crew, unfortunately, discovered an hour into the flight there were only 40 meals on the plane.

After trying to figure out what to do, the Flight Crew came up with a solution. They advised the passengers, “We apologize to you and we are still trying to figure out how this occurred, but we have only 40 dinners on board, and we need to feed all 198 of you on this flight.”

A loud muttering and moaning started amongst the passengers.  The chief flight attendant continued to try and quiet everyone down, “Anyone who is kind enough to give up their dinner so someone else could eat, will receive unlimited free alcoholic beverages during the entire duration of the flight.”

A second announcement was made two hours later, “If anyone wants to change their mind, we still have 40 dinners available.”

All alphabetically arranged by topic, you’ll find a large assortment of enjoyable jokes, intriguing stories, thought-provoking quotes, and lots of humor in the 320+ pages.

We leave the choice of jokes or stories you want to share up to you as individual humor and tastes vary.

Sit back in a comfortable chair with your favorite beverage away from all distractions and enjoy reading this hilarious book!

Genre: Essays

Release: August 1, 2017

Amazon ButtonGoodreads Button


From an important new American writer comes this powerful collection of personal essays on fear, creativity, art, faith, academia, the Internet, and justice.

In this poignant and inciting collection of literary essays, Megan Stielstra tells stories to ward off fears both personal and universal as she grapples toward a better way to live. In her titular piece “The Wrong Way To Save Your Life,” she answers the question of what has value in our lives—a question no longer rhetorical when the apartment above her family’s goes up in flames. “Here is My Heart” sheds light on Megan’s close relationship with her father, whose continued insistence on climbing mountains despite a series of heart attacks leads the author to dissect deer hearts in a poetic attempt to interrogate her own feelings about mortality.

Whether she’s imagining the implications of open-carry laws on college campuses, recounting the story of going underwater on the mortgage of her first home, or revealing the unexpected pains and joys of marriage and motherhood, Stielstra’s work informs, impels, enlightens, and embraces us all. The result is something beautiful—this story, her courage, and, potentially, our own.

Intellectually fierce and viscerally intimate, Megan Stielstra’s voice is witty, wise, warm, and above all, achingly human.

“Stielstra is a masterful essayist.”—Roxane Gay, author of Bad Feminist and Hunger

 

Megan Stielstra’s story collection, Everyone Remain Calm, was a Chicago Tribune Favorite of 2011, and her essay collection, Once I Was Cool, is forthcoming May 2014. Her work has appeared in The Best American Essays 2013, The Rumpus, PANK, Other Voices, and elsewhere.

Zora takes care of Zora

Piper Huguley

It’s great when people say they “just love Zora Neale Hurston.” Wonderful, because she most certainly loved herself. As she was. I don’t mean that in an egotistical way. She was unafraid to fully accept who she was in American society. She made no apologies and no excuses. Her ideas are still too radical for a lot of people, but most especially women, to accept. Despite all of our advances, today’s women still make excuses for themselves, and if asked, will express the desire to “change something” rather than loving themselves for who they are.

Zora was way, way, ahead of her time in that she didn’t have list. This is why, if someone says they love her, they need to be ready to embrace all of Zora. A lot of her philosophy was expressed through themes in her novels, but more directly in her essays and in her autobiography,
