Product Description

Product Description

You're single, and it's pretty pathetic. If you want to find a good man to marry, do it while you're still at Princeton. If you don't, your options will only become fewer and fewer until you end up childless and alone at the age of 30. And by that point, you'll only have one option left: death.

Written by The Princeton Momster, a Princeton graduate, who is a divorced mother living in her own world on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Alyssa Wolff and Alison Leiby are New York City-based writers and stand-up comics. They both hold degrees from Ivy League colleges.

Alyssa and Alison are both still single.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the best sarcastic rebuttal EVER! 12 Mar. 2014

It is very quotable and highly entertaining. I laughed so hard I scared my husband. I think that any woman that has no interest in a "traditional marriage with children- who must go to Princeton" will get a kick out of this. Funny quotes I had to note are...

" Princeton - is a $200,000 investment in finding a good husband and father. Think of it as making a down payment on not having fat, dumb kids."

On boys "Even if he ends up begin some sort of hermetic sociopath, at least he still has a Princeton education."

"Chances are, as two Princeton undergraduates, you will already have a lot in common. For example, you will both enjoy being better than everyone else."

On marriage "The most important thing to consider is whether or not other people think he is right for you."

"Without a prestigious degree and high profile job, he's like eggs of a woman over 25: useless."

5.0 out of 5 stars Snarky and enjoyable 11 Mar. 2014

Delightful, brutal parody of Marry Smart (you only need a cursory recollection of the Princeton Mom's letter to connect to this lampoon). I found myself cackling at the author's cruel advice, which was disturbingly similar to the original version. This piece jolts the reader to consider issues of women's achievement in the same way that Tina Fey's verbatim repetition of Sarah Palin's now-infamous Katie Couric interview shined light on the stakes of the 2008 election. That is the genius of Wolff & Leiby's prose (including their earlier "Lean Over") : their work (in contrast to the original) actually fosters introspection and discussion on modern feminism. But, you'll be laughing so hard while you read about the women's right to vote (not a worthwhile accomplishment), female friendships (with a British lamppost) and fertility after age 30 (men will think you're a witch) that you'll forget you're doing anything serious at all.

I needed a laugh and this book gave it to me. It's a clever read sure to mislead someone with no identity or no common sense or no self-esteem, or, yes, and not from Princeton.

Sounds like my mom wrote this book! Amazing! Can't wait to read more from these hilarious ladies! Hilarious ladies as an oxymoron? I don't think so!

I loved this. The author is extremely and brutally honest. Although I must admit harsh and over the top. This book is a real look into women's enlightenment or lack thereof. I have several degrees myself but must admit that both my marriages are what have provided financial stability. This book is not for the thin skinned or easily offended PC ladies. Take it read it and laugh. It is what it is.

This is how original Prinston mom should have written her book if she had any sense of humor. Also brains.
