    -Lara Beth, Amazon Reviewer

    Throughout this collection of personal essays, Jackson takes the reader on a journey through his marriage: learning the hard way his new wife’s cat is the one who really wears the pants in the family; trying to tackle a do-it-yourself plumbing project gone horribly awry; setting boundaries with a meddlesome mother-in-law; awkward family dinners; and embarking on an anniversary couples’ massage that almost ends in his murder.

    Jackson also examines the hazards of leaving the comfort of the marital home from being attacked repeatedly by angry birds, embarking on a canoe trip that almost turns into a search and rescue mission, and venturing into one of the worst places of all – the gym.

    Jackson Banks will keep the reader entertained and laughing page by page in his debut book about the absurdity and comicality of everyday life.
