Publisher's Summary

It seems to happen overnight. One minute your daughter is wearing bunny slippers and demanding bedtime stories. The next, she's wearing a midriff-baring t-shirt and demanding the car keys.

8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter takes us shriek by shriek through the process of raising teenage girls, including braces (the most expensive metal on earth), the telephone (seemingly wired to her nervous system) and, of course, dating (Rule #2: Keep your hands and eyes off my daughter's body, or I will remove them).

Enjoyable and read by John Ritter

Any current or past parent of a teenage girl will be able to relate to this funny book. And for those who have a daughter beginning to entire this time of life, this book will begin to prepare you for what's ahead. A good laugh for all, especially those who have gone through the teenage years!

Very funny

John Ritter is the ideal person to read this book - his delivery is hilarious! Having seen various episodes of the programme on TV by the same name, I was interested in listening to the original book and it certainly did not disappoint. I am sure that every parent will see the funny side of life with teenagers when listening to this, but if it is nothing else, it is fair warning to the childless not to enter into the endeavour of having children without due thought and consideration.

The sound quality was very good on the highest quality level I downloaded. I can recommend this as a pleasant and hilarious way to while away an afternoon or entertain you during a journey.

TOO FUNNY and REAL

This book is so true and so very funny. It helps us as parents to laugh, breath and then try to figure out how to deal with our teens!

Good book

Overall, I thought this was a really good book that I could definitely relate to. Funny and on point! I really enjoyed this listen and Ritter was a great narrator too.

Comedy, not practical advice

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This book is full of entertaining stories about adolescent daughters. I was looking for parental advice and was consequently disappointed.

Made me grin, ear to ear!

Being a father of a 12-year old, and a 7-year old (both girls) I was looking for advice - didn't think it would leave me grinning hours after the listen. Excellent.
