I’m With Stupid

One Man. One Woman. 10,000 Years of Misunderstanding Between the Sexes Cleared Right Up (2004)

by Gene Weingarten (1951-) & Gina Barreca (1957-)

This book came to my notice through the Smithsonian Associates program, which had a program of the authors talking about the book. Rather than go to the talk, it seemed easier to request the book from the library.

The two are sort of funny, and play off each other well. Apparently they worked by long-distance (between Washington and New York) phone and email, never meeting until after the book was finished, an interesting approach to a man-woman collaboration.

There are a few minor insights, but mostly this a humor book. After a while, it seemed that I had heard most of the topics addressed humorously in other places, and nothing here was funny enough to recommend the book.
