It Takes Balls: Dating Single Moms and Other Confessions from an Unprepared Single Dad | [Josh Wolf]

It Takes Balls: Dating Single Moms and Other Confessions from an Unprepared Single Dad

Struggling to make it as a stand-up comic didn't always fit with being a single parent. But Josh figured out his own set of rules - through trial and (frequent) error. Early picking up kids from school? The nearby strip club is a great place to kill time and bond with some like-minded dads. Want a drunken heart-to-heart with your son? First make sure there's no Sharpie around in case you pass out.

Publisher's Summary

Josh Wolf - one of the stars and writers of Chelsea Lately and After Lately - delivers a hilarious collection of essays that reminds us all what it takes to conquer fatherhood without sacrificing manhood.

Struggling to make it as a stand-up comic didn't always fit with being a single parent. But Josh figured out his own set of rules - through trial and (frequent) error. Early picking up kids from school? The nearby strip club is a great place to kill time and bond with some like-minded dads. Want a drunken heart-to-heart with your son? First make sure there's no Sharpie around in case you pass out. Wondering where to take that special someone at the end of the night? Remember that no sane woman will have sex with you in a one-bedroom apartment where your kids are sleeping - even if you promise to be really, really quiet.

Whether it's revealing the secrets to limitless hookups (hint: it's single moms) and getting rid of your children's friends that you just can't stand (hint: it's not single moms), or blackmailing PTA members and ignoring health codes, Josh is sure to impart some parenting wisdom along the way. Or at least have a good time trying.

    Story
    "Funny, suprisingly touching, and great stories"
    Where does It Takes Balls rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It Takes Balls is right up there with Chelsea Handler's books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Stories of Josh and his kids made me laugh till I was crying and his antics with his friends had me gasping for breath.


    What does Josh Wolf bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The way he delivers his jokes and stories makes it just that much more funny. He has great timing and inflection and delivers each and every punchline.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I absolutely loved this book. The only thing that detracted was that he sometimes meandered into other stories to make a point or to add back story but sometimes it took so long you get a little lost from the original point of the chapter. It would also have the book flow a bit better if the book had followed a more chronological time line. But don't be mistaken: everything he talks about is hilarious so it's really not a big deal.
