5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book June 14 2004
I started reading this on her diary online. I am now ordering the book too, so I can have a good read in school. Mimi offers a smart, yet oh-so-funny outlook on life. Everyone should read this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for reading on the el Nov. 29 2005
By Gen of North Coast Gardening - Published on Amazon.com
This sharp new book reads like it was written by the witty, imperfect, cooler older sister you wish you had; the one who walks around with a dryer sheet unknowingly stuck to her back but manages to give the most spot on advice for any of those twenty something angst moments we all have had. She is down to earth, funny, and writes about things all of us twenty somethings have experienced.

This was great bathtime reading; the wisdom and humor have been pared down into pithy little essays and vignettes, which makes it great for on the go or beach reading. You can sit down and read the whole book at once or stretch it out and enjoy it bit by bit. Either way, this was a real hit with me and I will be recommending it to my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Party In Her Head! Aug. 29 2005
By Book Bug - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is wonderful! Wit, energy and observations that will knock your socks off. It is a truly funny offering of a Chicago woman as she processes her day in a head that has more going on in it than should be allowed. This is a compilation of blog entries, the blog continues and I hope for more to be published.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great introductory book for the uninitiated... Sept. 14 2007
By Anne - Published on Amazon.com
Anyone who has been reading her blog would find this book to be a bit of a retread, and the entries that appear in this book seem a million miles away from what she has been writing about more recently (mainly, her daughter Nora). But to someone who has never heard of mimi smartypants and has yet to experience her incredibly smart and funny meanderings -- they are in for a real treat.

Like her online entries, this book is probably best savored in small bites, not read straight through. It is pretty dense and sometimes repetative with its themes-- as most peoples lives tend to be! This is not a smack against the book, but rather an observation.

Overall, whether or not you're a fan (yet)... its definitely worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not many books make me laugh out loud July 2 2009
By aerlys - Published on Amazon.com
Nothing big or important happens in the book. It is not great literature. But it had me laughing out loud many times, and that doesn't happen very often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ms. Smartypants amusing reflections on life are fun to follow Dec 30 2005
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
She is license-less so she rides the train in her morning Chicago commute. Thirty year old Mimi Smartypants decides to keep a journal of her thoughts on any topic. Mimi might type on her web blog a tirade about her family or friends, especially those Y carriers, raves on the latest punk rock group, or just how well her pension plan and other investments are doing. Nothing is sacred to Mimi except perhaps Browned Eyed Girl Van Morrison at least before he became famous. Mimi Smartypants sees the world from her 5'1 towering height as medicine chests worth exploring or her take on home décor (aside to Mimi: try being a book reviewer - worse on the home than rugrats or terriers).

Ms. Smartypants amusing reflections on life are fun to follow (easier to read in book form when riding the C-TRAN than using a computer on the Clayton County public bus system) as she pulls no punches when she knocks an icon down, but does so with humor. Readers will be amused by her observations and those who want more can do so at her bloggering site Smartypants.Diaryland.com which is filled with droll musings on the world according to Mimi Smartypants.
