How to Make Your Man Behave in 21 Days or Less Using the Secrets of Professional Dog Trainers
One of the funniest and most astutely observed works on the sexes since James Thurber, How to Make Your Man Behave in 21 Days of Less Using the Secrets of Professional Dog Trainers (over 207,000 copies in print) turns the often-expressed axiom "Men are dogs" into a howling little handbook on men for contemporary women. Doggie Dos and Don'ts: "Gentle strokes and playful petting techniques are positive motivational techniques for rewarding good behavior." And Flight and Chase Behavior: "If your dog is running away from you, the worst thing to do is chase after him . . . remain calm, act like you're having loads of fun without him, and soon he'll be trotting eagerly back." Doggie Dogmas: "Dogs like to eat out of your plate." "It's pointless to compete for the attention of a dog caught up in a ball game." And a quick primer on personality and temperament, from The Sporting Dog (requires daily exercise, gets bored easily, needs lots of attention) to The Hound (instinctually driven to chase and catch nearly anything that moves). With its tongue-in-cheek humor and illustrations that evoke an old Esquire magazine, How to Make Your Man Behave in 21 Days of Less assures that control will be yours forever, as behavioral problems vanish within twenty-one days. It's guaranteed.

At 12 1/2, Alexandra has more questions than she has answers: "Free to be me...or does being me have a price? And if so, how much should I charge?" and "Will my dad and I ever be able to communicate? Am I talking in a voice only elves can hear?" Luckily, with some help from her cabaret-lounge-singer mother (really, she sings on top of pianos) and an all-too-honest Very Best Friend, this plucky heroine is perfectly poised for teendom. An entertaining, right-on-target read for every preteen girl interested in friends, family, crushes, and cliques. Narrative voice is inspiring and informative about such topics as Double-Mom Theory and the mating habits of Tungara frogs.
