Jennifer Worick had a bad day. And then a bad week. She channeled her aggravation into creating the blog Things I Want to Punch in the Face, which became a sensation. Although her bad week passed, she has continued to take note of the little irritations that torment us all daily, from old guys with ponytails to twenty-minute coffee prep, bizspeak to vanity plates, celebrity baby names to emoticons. Now, just in time for the holiday season, the book showcases more than one hundred of Worick's most punch-worthy aggravations, rated on a scale of one to five fists. She rants, she vents, and she amuses with little factoids about the things that annoy the crap out of us. In short, she has created a hilarious gift book that has something for everyone to hate, from the last swig of beer, to mashups, to Ed Hardy clothing, to packing tape.

Professional reviews

"Based on the popular blog of the same name, this audiobook features Jennifer Worick's rants against everything from old guys with ponytails to people who don't believe in television. The premise is simple: "Crap that chaps my hide." Narrator Rebecca Gibel injects a bit of venom into each of the selections, which are given a ranking (number of punches) based on how annoying they are to the author. Gibel definitely manages to communicate both the author's irritation and her humor, but the long list of punch-worthy items from the blog starts to feel tiresome after a while, and the entries start to blend together. Nonetheless, listeners will certainly chuckle in recognition at some of Worick's cannily described annoyances of modern-day life. S.E.G. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
