I really enjoyed the audio edition since there were multiple people that helped write the book there were also multiple voices that help read the book as well. Having all these voices help me picture the people being interviewed. It also gave me a visual throwback to the skits and times that the people hosted or were a part of the SNL cast.
Listening to the audio book has also inspired me to pick up the print version as well.
This book not only gave a history to the show but also to the City and what everyone was going through during different times.
To me this book is SNL's biography.
You are able to feel all the emotion that everyone was going through when they talk about significant moments in their history and in the show's.
It was very moving when old cast members/hosts/producers would talk about a cast member that passed away. During these parts the book get's views from a lot of people and you are given a great insight to what they were going through at that difficult time.
I really enjoyed this book and will for sure pick up a print copy as well.
Humorous, Heartfelt & Fun
You can tell that Jim Gaffigan loves his family very much. Especially his wife - no wonder they have 5 kids!
I love when the author of the book is also the one that is reading it. You get the actual tone that they were striving for. And since Jim Gaffigan is a natural story teller it was great to hear him read this as well.
I learned that you have to do what you love and find those that you love to help along the way. The fact that Jim's wife helps him with all of his work is outstanding - both career wise and with the kids.
Right now all of his children are very young, so I hope that he continues to write these books as the kids grow up.
The book also made me feel like I wasn't alone in some of my parenting situations - and the humor that Jim puts towards everything is enlightening.
