A hospitality book like nothing else I have seen, it is the funniest book I have read in ages, filled with so much stuff that each time you open it you'll swear that page wasn't there before. I Like You by Amy Sedaris will have you laughing and cringing at the same time. A cookbook, manner book, and how-to-entertain book that will put you over the top with laughter at the silly layouts, funny Amy and all the things she is capable of.
I Like you is a book glorifying all things tacky, outdated and ridiculous, but it is much more as well. The recipes, the photos and all the writing Amy does is amazing, she is one insanely talented comedian. Yes, Amy Sedaris is David Sedaris' sister, that is crazy to me that they both are so funny I wonder if their parents slipped a little something special in their water to make them funnier than the average person, much funnier.
I have to warn you if you think some things just shouldn't be discussed, much less discussed in a manners book, this is not your book. At times it is pretty vulgar and over the edge. That didn't really bother me, it was too funny for me to worry about if it was inappropriate, which it is. However consider yourself warned that if you take yourself too seriously, if you get offended and are squeamish: avoid this book and pick up something else. If you are not in those categories, give it a shot! Warning tough, it is insanely addictive.
I think many folks could enjoy this book, snatch it up and I dare you not to laugh your guts out reading it!
