Longtime comedian and actress Elizabeth Beckwith has put pen to paper for her first book, "Raising the Perfect Child Through Guilt and Manipulation" which will be released tomorrow by Harper Paperbacks.

As a new parent, Beckwith drew upon her own upbringing in creating this guide which Barnes & Noble should bundle with "What to Expect When You're Expecting". In our trip to the Santa Monica Pier, Beckwith told us about some of her fears and phobias that guide her philosphy, recounted some anecdotes about getting an interview printed in Penthouse Magazine, as well as what parts of the book she'll be sharing at the following events in and around LA:

October 6th - Book Soup @ 8:00pm
October 7th - Torrance Public Library @ 7:00pm
October 10th - Neighborhood Grinds in Redondo Beach @ 7:00pm
