Teresa Strasser’s New Book – Exploiting My Baby (Out Jan. 4th)

Teresa Strasser made her baby a spleen and some eyebrows. 

He got her a book deal. 

Everyone loves babies-and pregnant women-so TV and radio personality Teresa Strasser decided to use this obsession to her advantage. She came up with a way to provide for her newfound family and help other mommies-to-be with this down- and-dirty memoir about first-time pregnancy. 

An award-winning writer, Teresa is achingly honest about the motherhood she begins experiencing at age thirty-eight. With a biting sense of humor and heart, she portrays the tribulations that come with each trimester, from nausea, weight gain, and bladder infections to dealing with those other kinds of pregnant women. (You know the ones. The ones who glow-and gloat about it.) 

Exploiting My Baby is a must-read for anyone pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or who is just more crazy than baby-crazy. Hopping on a trail pioneered by such lions as Laura Ingalls Wilder, Erma Bombeck, and Tori Spelling, Teresa has no problem using her pregnancy, childbirth and difficult relationship with her own mother for material. It’s her blunt and plain-spoken approach to exploiting her family for literary success that sets her apart.

“Teresa’s pain is your gain. The toll pregnancy and birth have taken on her marriage, career, psyche and cervix are all laid bare for your info-tainment. Her neurotic neonatal journey will make you laugh and cry. It might even make you aroused (if you’re into that sort of thing).” 
-Adam Carolla 

“I laughed my ass off – which is great, because now I don’t have stretch marks anymore.” 
-New York Times-bestselling author Jenny McCarthy 

“Exploiting her baby, perhaps, but most certainly rewarding her readers, Teresa Strasser trudges, nay, romps with us down the road from the anxiety of no baby to guilt of not deserving a precious child. All the while she reminds us that the echoes of our families of origin, although carried along with us like so much muck in a river-bed, need not choke our ability to flourish and find joy as parents.” 
-Dr. Drew Pinsky 

“If Woody Allen was a woman with big giant ovaries and wrote a book about his pregnancy, it still wouldn’t have been this funny, warm, brassy and insightful.” 
-Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, bestselling author of Sippy Cups are Not for Chardonnay
