review 1: This is a short, light-hearted read about what you get when you combine baby-boomer mothers and technology (primarily email and IM). There are some pretty funny emails shared in this book. It's a little voyeuristic as some of them seem kind of personal and naturally the reader doesn't know either the sender or recipient or any other clarifying info about that email. I suspect that some of them are only funny because they are essentially taken out of context. But, overall, there's a lot of sweetness here (and a good dose of weirdness too).
review 2: Guys, this is a good Mother's Day present. Well, actually, it may be a terrible present because I'm not sure my mom will get how ridiculous and lovable these emails/IM conversations from people's moms are, and even i
... moref she does get it, I'm not sure she'll recognize that I'm saying they are identical to hers. So maybe it's a good present for someone who has a mom and...likes to read books about them? less

Funny, in spots, but mostly kind of dumb. I don't know any moms who are like this.
Boring. Rushed to get through it. Not as funny as I thought it would be.
Not as funny as I had anticipated. A quick read.
Does your mom send kooky things via email?
Very cute and funny.
