I would if they had kids, otherwise, not likely.
Not so much humorous, as it is mostly just hearing Jim speckle some funny comments with talking flatly about parenthood.
The funny stories and comments he actually put in there were LOL quality.
Yes, movies are whittled down to the most essential and impactful parts of a book, and this one would likely be rife with humor.
Wonderful thoughts and comedy while driving a long commute
Jim Gaffigan is thoughtful in his description of family life
His narration of every day life
To laugh throughout the day and appreciate the obsurd
You won't regret this listen
Thoroughly enjoyed this. As a parent you connect right away with the humor in the situations he describes throughout. He keeps it real and adds his flavor of humor to the whole thing.
I love the way he tells stories so I enjoyed listening to his voice... I could picture him in the stories and laughed out loud multiple times.
His voice and expression is pricless.
I just really liked it. I laughed. I pondered. I reflected on my own parenting. I enjoyed the stories and his input on real subjects.
The book is really funny. He has a lot of cutting insights into his life and life in general.
About the only thing that I might say against it is that it was so funny I was trying to listen to it all at once, and it becomes a bit repetitive that way.
Best to be taken in small comedy bits (chapters) and come back to it later for best enjoyment.
great stories every parent can relate to, ready to start it all over again! even making notes of my favorite jokes - tv news is like kryptonite to kids!!!
Heya! My name is Howard, I'm a musician and a recent university grad in Film Production. I mostly like dumb humor and non-fiction, sue me!!!
This one had me laughing a lot from the time I started re-listening. I can't remember why I couldn't get into it at first, but as an adult who had to take a road trip with my parents, this saved me. Maybe I was just in a weird mood, but if you're like me and had a hard time getting into it, stay with it, it's hilarious.
Very funny, very true! Although I can not relate to his 5 kids in NYC, I've found myself in many of these same experiences as a father. I enjoyed this book, thanks Jim!
