Book Description

7 Nov 2002

What happens when those two most incompatible of creatures - the human male and the human female - settle down for a life of togetherness and arguments about the toilet seat? Award-winning comedian Jeff Green bravely sets out to discover the truth. Why is, 'Wow, you're a fantastic cleaner', not considered a compliment? And what is it about women and candles...?

Along the way he offers helpful advice (why you shouldn't cheer when your partner says, 'I'm not angry, I'm disappointed'), handy tips (ways to avoid becoming broody: get up every hour throughout the night and burn £200) and essential buys (see 'exercise equipment and other places to hang wet washing').

Whether you're hopelessly coupled or gratefully single, The A-Z of Living Together has all the answers you need. Because it's not just men who behave badly...

4.0 out of 5 stars Silly fun - but spookily accurate too 2 July 2003
This book made me (and my partner) laugh out loud. It's a comedy guide to the trials of cohabitation, and it's written for laughs. However, a lot of the jokes and assertions made by Jeff Green are scarily accurate - or so my boyfriend testifies!
The book is set out in an A-Z format, and topics covered include: bathroom habits, candles, DIY, friends, masturbation, housework etc. There's lots of good natured teasing of both sexes, and I imagine that most people would find something here that amuses them and strikes a note of recognition.
It should be given to all new couples along with the keys to their first home. You have been warned!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but worth buying? 21 May 2007
'The A-Z of Living Together' is what I would call a bathroom book. This means that it is something that you cab pick up and put down after only small chunks. It follows a dictionary-esque explanation of different aspects that arise when you move in with your partner from smelly feet to toilet seats.

Overall, the book is pretty funny, with several of Green's observations hitting home and being very funny. However, there are also some that fall very flat. Add to this the fact that a lot of what he writes is pure cliché and you start to wonder if you are paying for something that anyone could have written. I felt that compared to Green's stand-up, which is essentially the book narrated, it feels flat. I also think that the book is too short to actually pay money for as a lot of it is blank space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstandingly Accurate 8 Oct 2007
I bought this book after being drawn to the title. After only a few seconds in to the book, I could relate to the author. You will laugh at the quotes of behaviour. Essential for anybody about to move in with their partner!
