Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595004806, Paperback)Nothing challenges priority more than a compulsion for sports. How to Hook Your Spouse is part autobiography and part guidebook for sustaining a marriage. Humorous stories illustrate the life-cycle of bonding with a sports-obsessive using fishing as central metaphor.Georgene Simon Drieshpoon is married to a retired physician who claims in his next life he wants to come back as a fishing guide. He chases the fish. She chases him. She's been chasing him for forty-nine years.The author says, "We joke about compulsions. The term 'fishing widow" says it all. The fishermen were not dead, just caught up in their priority. Parenthood changed my priority. It was during this period that my husband and I had our best fights. I was determined not to be a 'fishing widow.'"While the author fished with her husband, she says, "I'm more like his pocket edition." Together they have explored the aura of fishing in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, the Bahamas, and Africa. She's heard fishermen grumble that "women just don't understand." She says, "The same can be said for the other side." This book is an attempt to humorously enlighten both genders.
