    This review is from: Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Dungeons & Dragons: One Woman’s Quest to Trade Self-Help for Elf-Help (Paperback)

    This book has just enough D&D to warrant the title, but it is more of the author’s experiences and thoughts on stuff than a book about the game. The D&D references usually branch off into light-hearted (in a heavy hors d’oeuvres sort of way) examinations of subjects such as spirituality, commitment, and fashion. Often funny and always witty, it definitely touches on her relationships with others: pets, co-workers, her boyfriend, random psychotic children on Big Wheels, and, especially, her mother.

    What gives the book it’s real charm to me, though, is that underneath all of the humor, wit, and sarcasm, there is an honest examination of self going on in it as well. If you are interested in a well-written, funny book with a little bit of “self-help” sprinkled in, then by all means, buy this book. It is good enough, smart enough, and, doggone it, I think you will like it. Any interest you have in D&D will just be the cherry on top.

    Life lessons from D&D. How can you not go wrong. :)
    Just like a any campaign, in life there are twists and turns and sticky situations you have to get out of using creative and sometimes unorthodox methods. And when you’re a small town girl successfully navigating life in a big city, you have to have a +3 in charisma which Shelly obviously does. Kudos for a fun read with just enough geekiness to make it absolutely tres chic!

    I bought this for my daughter after she’d read the first book by this author…”Confessions of a Part Time Sorceress.” She liked this book but really loved the first one.
