His insights into parenting were really wonderful
We found ourselves cracking up often - with five kids, there are plenty of great stories
We have heard his stand-up routines and enjoyed them. A lot of the book is poached from his stand-up, which was not bad, just not new.
The text was wonderful but his performance reading it was a little rough. We could tell he meant for certain lines to be punchlines, but they were read just like text from a novel. The book itself is great, but I think that if I had read it myself, I would've delivered it in his voice in my head with his comedic timing.
Rob Delaney is famous for sending offbeat messages to companies and corporations on Twitter. The man behind the page, though, has an incredible story. Having struggles of my own with addiction and depression, it was wonderful to hear him speak so candidly about his struggles and his process to find peace with himself.
Jumping off the Brooklyn Bridge - his storytelling ability is absolutely breathtaking.
His honesty - it's just unbelievably refreshing.
I absolutely, completely loved this book. If you approach the book anticipating Rob's Twitter persona, you'll find some of it - but maybe not as much as you might expect. Trust that this is a good thing. He tells his story with as much comedy as appropriate - serious when he needs to be, then lightens things up again with some of his trademark comedy.
