Fight Naked by Kathy Thorson Gruhn is a book that lists all the silly mistakes everybody makes in life and encourages us to laugh wholeheartedly at the absurdity of it all. Do you remember the first time you tried to put on a bra? Or the time you made an ultimate fool of yourself in the eyes of the law? Kathy Thorson Gruhn does! From middle school to high school and even adulthood, humorous and silly encounters seem to follow her no matter where she goes. Therefore, in an attempt to make amends with the universe —which is adamant about encouraging Kathy to seem the most foolish person on Earth — she has written down all the hilarious episodes of her life that still bring tears of laughter whenever she thinks back about them or shares them with close ones. All the stories in Kathy‘s book will have you clutching your sides as you laugh out loud and leave you wondering — can something this hilariously foolish be true?

This book is the best thing that happened to me today and I must say that I read it straight through, from the first to the last page. Fight Naked by Kathy Thorson Gruhn is a book that lays bare all the fun antics of the author’s childhood and how she struggles with keeping a straight face at the ridiculousness in her adulthood as well. The author also shares personal stories as an unpredictable wife to her innocent husband and how she once ‘accidentally’ murdered his prize trophy fish. The book is written with an expert comedic flair that highlights the witty writing style, making for the perfect read on a lazy Sunday. If you are looking for the perfect comedy book for a special woman in your life, Fight Naked by Kathy Thorson Gruhn would make the perfect gift for them. It feels like watching the best comedy show and when you have turned over the last page, you want to meet this author. It is so refreshing, so humane, and so humorously engaging you will want more of her. The lightness in tone reflects the aloofness with which the author confronts some of the situations in life, and it defines the beauty in her humor.
