“Not even Martha Stewart can cultivate a garden this colorful, where men and women can coexist thanks to healthy doses of hilarity--and hormones.”

Lesley Abravanel, The Miami Herald

“For centuries, men have tried to understand the female mind - a largely futile quest thus far.  The combination of witty observation and insight in these 'Postcards' will provide men with hope and both sexes with laughter.”

Stephen M. Shapiro, Author of Goal-Free Living

The Book - Postcards from the Garden of Estrogen:  Join Don Staffin (a.k.a. “The Gardener”) on a hilarious three year journey through the Garden of Estrogen.  A delightful mix of anecdotes, “flash forwards”, and fictional musings serve to shed new light on the relationships between males and females of all ages.  Throw four daughters (three of whom are triplets) and the “Queen of the Garden” into the mix, and things really get interesting.               (scroll down for more)
