Really enjoyed this light fun take on the highs and lows of raising children. I could relate to almost all his sketches and I am resolved to lighten up and enjoy the craziness instead of going crazy!
I wouldn't recommend this book for anyone who isn't a parent of young children. But since I am one, I thoroughly enjoyed how Jim Gaffigan celebrates, mocks, and bemoans our state in life. It is spot on! Tears came to my eyes sometimes from laughter and other times from joyful "Hallmark" glowy feelings about my kids.
I found this book very funny and I could totally relate to so much because we also have five kids and no one ever invited us over either! I love how much he loves his wife and kids and would rather be with them than anywhere
else... most of the time.
My wife and I listened to the whole book while on a road trip. we are expecting our first child so this book was very fitting. expecting of not though Jim lets you in on his parenting experiences with lots of comical insights. very funny and entertaining. loved it.
We had hit a low in our road trip when we bought this book and it really turned it around for us. There wasn't a minute that went by that didn't have a big laugh. Awesome book with new material from Jim Gaffigan
Jim Gaffigan hits the nail on the head (again) in his hilarious take on parenting and life! I'll have to read/listen to it every few years to keep my perspective and smile about my 3 kids!
Funny moments but not as funny as the comedian usually is. like him on tv. book is linear. again funny moments but not overall funny
Say something about yourself!
I've been listening to Jims standup for a while so I had high expectations for this book. Jim did not disappoint. I love his view of his family and his general laid back view of life. He helped me realize those stressful kid moments are not so bad. It was nice getting to know Jim and his family a little more. I'll be reading the next one too!
