It's unfortunate to have to attribute this book such a low rating, but the whole thing feels like a case of half-hearted attempts at humour and political correctness.

It’s a common refrain when you are saying anything about men; they are very fragile so you have to specify that you are not talking about every single one of them. Nicole Tersigni's inventive book reminds me of reading a narrative by the great comedienne, Jane Austen. Pairing classical images with great quotes that will be all too familiar to many, this calendar makes for a brilliantly funny way to stay on track throughout the year. As far as feminism goes, this is strictly playing in the shallow waters, but it still got a smile or two and it was exactly what I needed at the time. And I think that it’s very cool that my book is giving them this awareness because I’m doing it in a way that we are laughing together about a very common experience; it’s not an attack on anyone.I have been online for a decade and I always have been very active so I have a lot of experience, but in the beginning, it’s definitely more crushing. I love it when creative social media accounts reach such heights as to turn into actual physical books. It’s both comforting and vindicating to know that listening to men being shitty isn’t new, that our foremothers didn’t necessarily put up with it lightly, and that we can and almost indeed owe it to them to proclaim misogyny unacceptable, whether boldly through direct political action or more subversively through humor like this.

The largest chunk of text comes from the foreword by comedian Jen Kirkman, which is of a tone with the rest of the book.

The artwork is beautiful, like having the Met Museum in your living room, and the captions are hilarious. Then a book agent reached out and asked me if I wanted to make that a book and I said, “Let’s do it!So I go online just to kind of scroll through Twitter and zone out for a little bit,” she said, “and I see a dude explaining to a woman her own joke back to her — something that has happened to me many times. I’m sure that some of them would be like “that woman is not thinking that, she is very into it, that’s just how women look”. It's laugh-out-loud funny, if you find women funny, of course, and will almost certainly upset men in both art and life, which is a beautiful gift in and of itself. On her social media accounts, Nicole Tersigni fights toxic masculinity and gender discrimination with humor and irony, every day. I like taking dark things and finding humor in them because we all experience terrible things, and we need to find ways to laugh about them.

He goes to you and says, “it’s a joke”, when he says something terrible, but it’s not how jokes work, and even if it was a joke, it’s not a good one. I also found myself cringing at some of the images; the men in these paintings look really condescending and creepy, which is no doubt why the author paired them with the statements she did. Another long time reader who read romance novels in her teens, then took a long break before started back again about 25 years ago.Women from all across the world will be able to relate to many of these statements - insideous, niggling, unsolicited moments which can be left to simmer inside us for years to come. These less qualified men of antiquity dish out mediocrity as if it's pure genius • For the women who have endured overbearing men over the centuries • Written with hilariously painful accuracy"Now, when you're riding a horse, you need to make sure to keep a good grip on the reins.

Hotjar sets this cookie to know whether a user is included in the data sampling defined by the site's daily session limit. It's a quick read and pointedly comical, featuring chapters titled: The Mansplainer, The Concern Troll, The Comedian, The Expert, and The Patronizer. I also liked how a list of the paintings used and where they were sourced is included at the end, in case you find one that tickles your fancy and want to see more. This collection of famous art mixed with observations and snarky comments about men gave me quite a few laughs.Men to Avoid in Art and Life pairs classical fine art with modern captions that epitomize the spirit of mansplaining. Here, in our author's hands, what's irksome in a woman's everyday life is effectively alleviated with cutting drollery. I don’t usually engage with them anymore because my platform has gotten so much bigger so there’s a lot of them. My daughter designed and implemented a program in her office to process payments with more efficiency. I read this the day I started it, it's a very quick read -- I'm talking ten minutes -- and I've read it probably three times more since.
