I love funny people, and Jim Gaffigan is no exception. Is this a sit-down-engrossing-from-start-to-finish-read? No, but it was laugh out loud funny and a quick, fun read. Highly recommend to people who love his comedy.

I just decided to say what Narshkite on Librarything said, "Full disclosure: I only read 1/4 of this. This reads like a compendium of daddy blog posts. The most I got out of this was a knowing smile, not so much as a haha emerged. Nothing objectionable here, and Gaffigan seems like a nice guy, but there is nothing here that hasn't been written as well millions times on thousands of parenting blogs."

It's not often that I don't finish a book, but I have several books to read at the moment and just need to move on. Nothing personal Jim.

I love comedians and their books; however, after reading 30 pages I hadn't even chuckled & it didn't keep my interest, so I stopped reading it.

This is a very funny book!!! Parents will relate, but you don't have to be a parent to enjoy. I'm not, and I laughed a LOT!!!

Honest, but heartwarming, this funny book had me laughing out loud nearly every chapter. Fans of Gaffigan's stand up will appreciate the nuggets of his act scattered throughout and fans of "honest parenting" books will love this latest addition to the genre.

I love his stand-up. His book is laugh out loud in many parts, but his wife kinda bugs...

This is Jim's take on raising 5 kids in NYC. As a parent and fan of his standup I found it very funny.

When I didn't have kids, I didn't get it, and I shouldn't have. I had never fight in the Vietnam War and had dinner in Paris on the same day.
