Rachel Thompson Cleverly Exposes The Mancode

As I perused my Twitter feed yesterday, I connected with Rachel Thompson, a social media pro and author. She was promoting her new book, The Mancode: Exposed. For a few days only, all of her faithful fans and followers could download the book free on Amazon. So, I downloaded it. I’m not usually one to read these types of books and I thought that perhaps I might read a few pages and then let it fall into the land of unfinished reads. But, no. Rachel’s knack for keeping a reader captivated with humor led me to the land of completion. This book had me smiling and even laughing out loud from the first essay. Her take on the differences between men and women are not particularly new, but she writes what most people are afraid to discuss out loud. I am happy to have connected with such a talented and funny tweeter-– of course, the jackpot came when I was able to read the book. Seriously, Rachel’s snarky wit comes throughout the book that leaves the reader thinking, “Yes! Why do men do that? She’s so right!” Aside from the fact that I love how she writes in #hashtags some of the time, her writing is very conversational, like she’s sitting next to you having a cuppa joe.

A few of my favorite things:

  • Disney dad classifications
  • Men are from Seinfeld and women are from Friends
  • Hoarders: Key Edition
  • Dude hair

There are so many more laugh out loud moments that it would not be right for me to list them all. Incidentally, the offer for the free download is still good through today– I would highly recommend you give it a read. And if you miss it today, it’s worth the list price!

    I’m so grateful you read it, liked it, and are sharing here. I get lots of feedback on my books (most positive, some scathingly negative but whatev) so it’s wonderful to hear what you liked specifically. Taking the time to write it out — well, you’re a gem. Big #vodkahugs 🙂
