Audible Editor Reviews
Kathy Buckworth's wry, self-deprecating account of the travails of an unpaid chauffeur, chef, and maid - in other words, a stay-at-home mom - will have listeners laughing along, whether they're moms or simply related to one.
Popular humorist and parenting writer Buckworth's latest audiobook finds her leaving the world of high-achieving, corporate SuperMoms to join the unfamiliar subculture of stay-at-home moms. Her conversational style and sardonic tone quickly build a rapport with listeners as she dispenses tips on matters such as appropriate stay-at-home fashion (Reebok), car choice (minivans), and entertainment (Barney & Friends). Part confessional, part survival guide, Journey to the Dark Side unsheathes the humor within the exasperations of the stay-at-home lifestyle.
In her latest book, popular humorist and parenting writer Kathy Buckworth takes a good, hard look at what happens when high-powered corporate moms decide to hang up their briefcases and venture into the uncharted waters of the stay-at-home world.
Journey to the Darkside: SuperMom Goes Home explores the culture shock that results when a woman goes from being a corporate go-getter to being an unpaid chauffeur, chef, and maid. Think you're a pro at dealing with office politics? Wait until you attend your first PTA meeting. Confident in your ability to make sound wardrobe choices? Don't listen too closely to what the other stay-at-home moms are saying at the park. Expect your husband to help out when you're feeling under the weather? Hah!
Part guidebook, part warning, Journey to the Darkside is insightful, hilarious, and brutally honest. It will have moms (stay-at-home or otherwise) laughing out loud - which is a good thing, because otherwise, they might have to cry.
