Even worse, it's all true!

Do not give this book to your wife/husband, partner, consort, concubine or anyone else you might care to share a bed with. Not if you want to get to sleep, that is. Not if you object to lying with your eyes closed listening to ever-louder snorts and giggles and occasional guffaw. Not if you can't help opening your eyes and asking - only slightly irratated - what all the fuss is about. And not if you can't then help sitting up and reading what has made said partner cry with laughter. And joining in yourself. And before long, that little 'light' read before lights-out, you know the one - 'until my eyes feel tired' - has got you both sitting up in bed and trying not to laugh so loud you wake the baby up. Seriously. This is a dangerous book. Avoid at all costs. And don't say I didn't warn you...
