Today's review is for:
Dad is Fat
Jim writes this book from his perspective as a parent raising 5 kids. He is a comedian who lives in New York City with his wife, Jeannie, and their children. At the time this book was written (2013), they were living in a small 2 bedroom apartment in Manhattan. He writes extensively on many subjects raising a large family - from birth to birthday parties, to eating, sleeping, and napping. He talks about his mistakes and victories of being a dad.
This was a hilarious book. Jim Gaffigan is one of my favorite comedians. He stand up is always about his kids or food. And he is a very clean comedian - meaning he doesn't need swearing to be funny. He has a sarcastic, dry humor that I love.
I cannot imagine raising 5 kids in the city let alone in a 2 bedroom apartment. I don't think he can imagine it either because it is a large part of what he talks about in the book. At the time of the writing, his youngest child was a few weeks old, and his oldest was 8. It must have been chaos.
Try this book out - you won't be disappointed.
