I Just Want to Be Perfect Book Launch!

Today is the official launch of I Just Want to Be Perfect – the 4th installment of Jen Mann of People I Want to Punch in the Throat’s New York Times Bestselling hysterical series. This book is all about the cult of perfection. As women, we are constantly inundated with “helpful” and/or “ah-may-zing” tips to improve our looks, please our men, raise the next Einstein (in a wheat-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free environment), and feng shui the crap out of our homes. Whether it’s the hot new diet that involves only eating what you can forage from the floor of your minivan, bleaching everything from your hair to your teeth to your butt hole, or clearing your clutter by mindfully thanking your ratty underwear for its long, dedicated service before you toss them, we’ve all tried something to be more perfect. We all try strive for perfection and balance in our lives, and most of us fail—spectacularly. These are those stories.

Here is a snippet of mine, appropriately titled Death, Diets, and Shit (yes my family is mortified I am sharing this story, but what can I say I’m a giver).

“I arrived at the salon with five minutes to spare, and mentally high fived myself for finally being on time. I had a fleeting moment where I considered using the salon’s restroom but I abhor public bathrooms. I decided I would just head home after my waxing. I’d be fine, right?”

You know you want the whole story – trust me. So go ahead and order your copy here or click on the beautiful cover below!
