Wisecracking blogger doesn't pull punches

It's not easy to endear yourself to readers when you write a book called People I Want to Punch in the Throat, yet somehow author Jen Mann manages to do just that in her new hilarious memoir.

It's a collection of short essays on Mann's life as a married mom of two, who has a gift for calling out the most ridiculous and annoying aspects of suburban life. Much of her tongue-lashing is aimed at fellow parents, but Mann's relatable stories will appeal to any cynic with a sense of humor.

Mann introduces the book with a list of some prime targets of disdain, including "humblebraggers" and extreme couponers. Her astute observations on generally irritating people make her a lovable hater who's got the moxie to say what we're all thinking.
