Publisher's Summary

In Dad is Fat, stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan, who’s best known for his legendary riffs on Hot Pockets, bacon, manatees, and McDonald's, expresses all the joys and horrors of life with five young children - everything from cousins ("celebrities for little kids") to toddlers’ communication skills ("they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news"), to the eating habits of four-year-olds ("there is no difference between a four-year-old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor"). Reminiscent of Bill Cosby’s Fatherhood, Dad is Fat is sharply observed, explosively funny, and a cry for help from a man who has realized he and his wife are outnumbered in their own home.

    "lots of lines from his standup,"

    so if you haven't heard good standup maybe some of the lines works be funnier (ie haven't heard it before).

    "All parents can relate to it"

    I really loved this audiobook. The flow of the book from child birth to kids growing up is amazing. Listening to it was like listening to a show.

    I would like to recommend this book to all my friends and specially my wife. This is the first book i was allowed to play in the car when my wife is with me. I guess she enjoyed it much more than i did. Tbh it was a little biased.

    For myself i can relate to this book because i had 4 siblings growing up. So i understand the drama and adventures of growing up in a large family. I guess i miss house full of kids and i definitely appreciate my parents efforts and patience towards us.

    "mild profanitt"

    DARN! I would have loved this book if only I were able to share it. The people I would want to share with would not appreciate the profanity. Many people after listening to this book tape would say "what profanity ?" Certainly it is mild by today's standards but in my world of our five children listening at home as well as in their father's car - where he would likely listen and love the work overall, even that minimal use of profanity sends a message that profanity, in some measure, is okay. If it is seen as acceptable in any degree.. the use becomes a subject of debate. The questions will always be how much? when? where? or so it's okay for adults but not for kids? Drama central..
    Overall - very entertaining and relate-able! Utah, family of eight..
