Shut Up and Eat!, humourist and parenting author Kathy Buckworth applies her razor-sharp wit to an examination of the family meal.

Experts claim that sitting down to eat together can prevent children from getting into trouble while simultaneously creating close-knit families. In Buckworth's opinion, that's an awful lot to expect from a meatloaf! What about the son who thinks his food tastes better on the blue plate with the fish? Or the daughter who won't eat anything green? And let's not even talk about the mom who'd rather be doing anything but standing in front of the stove (drinking a glass of wine comes immediately to mind).

Laugh-out-loud funny, more accurate than most of us would care to admit-and with a few recipes thrown in for good measure-

Shut Up and Eat! is a must-read for any woman who's ever wondered: What the hell am I cooking tonight?

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The BlackBerry Diaries "Buckworth writes unapologetically and with sharp wit about balancing the needs of her children and family life while finding pure escapist delights through her BlackBerry, lovingly named Seamus."-The Ottawa Citizen Praise for Journey to the Darkside: "Journey to the Darkside is the rare exception to the rule of supposedly funny mommy memoirs (the rule being that people should stop publishing them). Buckworth is perceptive, smart and absolutely hilarious. -Toronto Star ".uproariously funny."-Canadian Living Praise for The Secret Life of SuperMom "Buckworth kinda takes the pressure off, doesn't she? And the mask, too.of the tough (impossible?) job of being a SuperMom."-Today's Parent "This book will save you. It's a hilarious account of the trials and tribulations of child care-written with such a great sense of humour by a young woman who is right in the midst of it all."-Amazon.com
