Do research before buying
Had I read some of the book before purchasing I would have discovered that the author named his children Poppy and London. That, along with his being a host on NPR, would have given me an insight into his mentality and I would have skipped buying the book. As it is, I read it. The book has some humorous bits, but little to do with teaching. If I had glanced through the book all of his F-bombs would have given that away. It is mainly a dialog about his pathetic life. You hear about how much of a pain parents are, kids are, how fat his is, how cowardly he is, how pathetic teachers are, about his stoned brother who calls everyone dude (does anyone really do that?), etc. And throughout his diatribe about his own pathetic life he feels qualified to spew his political views. Why he expects anyone would care about the views of such a loser is beyond me. Save yourself a few hours of your precious life and avoid this book.
