Additional Information

Everyone has heard of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, that painful malady from too much repetitive motion. But how many have heard of its poor cousin, CARPOOL TUNNEL SYNDROME? The only known cure for parents driven to distraction by all their parenting duties is to read this wonderfully funny new book by Judy Gruen, a mother of four who knows there are no atheists driving over potholes when short passengers are dangling body parts out the rear window. Carpool Tunnel Syndrome takes a clever look at life with kids: the culinary creativity needed to satisfy "discriminating" palates; the politics of carpool; and the author's attempt to provide her kids with low-maintenance pet fish, only to discover the small aquatic creatures have the average life span of a souffle. Carpool Tunnel Syndrome may not absolve parents from 3:15 carpool duty, but it will make the drive a lot more fun. Take our advice: read two chapters and call us in the morning.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I enjoy reading about the trials and tribulations of motherhood, as would anyone who's traveled this path and maintained their sense of humor. I was always an Erma Bombeck fan, and Judy Gruen is just as down to earth and funny as Erma was. I have three grown children, and can remember with vivid clarity some of the highs and lows of each year of their childhood. In retrospect, I guess parenthood is akin to underwater basketweaving. There are no set plans available to follow. You just have to jump In with both feet, and hope there will be times when you can come up for air. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
I LOVE JUDY GRUEN SHE CRACKS ME UP SHES THE NEW EMMRA BOOMBECK FOR SURE LONG MAY SHE WRITE HER FUNNY BOOKS
When you are a parent you can be sure that there will be many important, serious, life-changing situations as you and your child grow together. On the other hand, if you can laugh at your own foibles, there are even more humorous events that occur on an almost daily basis. Changing your perspective so you can see the humor in everyday life is the forte of author Judy Gruen. In her book "Carpool Tunnel Syndrome" she demonstrates the ability to see humor in life with children and with deftly turns words and phrases on their ear to provide a truly funny look at motherhood. Any mother is sure to immediately recognize the situations she is addressing as she discusses things like "Why your sons play Cain and Abel while your daughters play house", "Travel turbulence", and stretch marks. A book that is hard to put down without picking it up again only minutes later, it is a highly recommended title for any mother looking to have a good laugh at life.
