8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter takes us shriek by shriek through the process of raising teenage girls, including braces (the most expensive metal on earth), the telephone (seemingly wired to her nervous system) and, of course, dating (Rule #2: Keep your hands and eyes off my daughter's body, or I will remove them).

"The talk of parents nationwide." (People )
"W. Bruce Cameron is the Dave Barry of modern family life." (Rocky Mountain News)
"The humor is top rate....A seamless performance of some very funny writing, and the gold standard when it comes to how well a comedy audio can be produced and performed." (AudioFile)
Being a father of a 12-year old, and a 7-year old (both girls) I was looking for advice - didn't think it would leave me grinning hours after the listen. Excellent.
"Enjoyable and read by John Ritter"
Any current or past parent of a teenage girl will be able to relate to this funny book. And for those who have a daughter beginning to entire this time of life, this book will begin to prepare you for what's ahead. A good laugh for all, especially those who have gone through the teenage years!
John Ritter is the ideal person to read this book - his delivery is hilarious! Having seen various episodes of the programme on TV by the same name, I was interested in listening to the original book and it certainly did not disappoint. I am sure that every parent will see the funny side of life with teenagers when listening to this, but if it is nothing else, it is fair warning to the childless not to enter into the endeavour of having children without due thought and consideration.
The sound quality was very good on the highest quality level I downloaded. I can recommend this as a pleasant and hilarious way to while away an afternoon or entertain you during a journey.
"TOO FUNNY and REAL"
This book is so true and so very funny. It helps us as parents to laugh, breath and then try to figure out how to deal with our teens!
Overall, I thought this was a really good book that I could definitely relate to. Funny and on point! I really enjoyed this listen and Ritter was a great narrator too.
"Great book. The whole family listened and loved it"
For me having John Ritter narrate the book was great. The audio book was enjoyed by the entire family.
"Comedy, not practical advice"
This book is full of entertaining stories about adolescent daughters. I was looking for parental advice and was consequently disappointed.
