Familyhood based on 1 ratings. 4 reviews.
If you liked couplehood.. babyhood... then you will LOVE Familyhood... love reading and laughing out loud as I lay on the beach :-) GET IT!!!
There is a sense of closure reading this book. Mostly if you have read his other ones: couplehood/babyhood. Now that I have read familyhood, I now know what it means to have a family and the importance of keeping that family alive and supportive. Paul Reiser wrote about the highs and lows of falling in love and getting married — and the heartbreak and hilarity that comes with it. In Babyhood, he turned his sharply observant eye to the experiences of having a brand-new family. And now in Familyhood, Reiser shares his observations on parenting, marriage, and mid-life with the wit, warmth, and humor that he’s so well-known for. From the first experience of sending his two boys off to summer camp — the early feelings of gleeful freedom in an empty house, to realizing how empty the house actually was — to maneuvering the minefield of bad words learned at school, this hilarious new book captures the spirit of familyhood, the logical next frontier for Reiser’s trademark perspective on the universal truths of life, love, and relationships. An amazing actor, he is also an amazing author. He literally gets right down to the nitty gritty of things that make you think what are YOU doing with your life? How is it? Are you making your quota? Are you helping out your family? When I was sitting there reading his book (so while reading his book, I went back and read his other books, just to be on top of things) I was actually revaluating my life! I was thinkng, where has my life gown too, what have I done personally to make my life a living example to my kids (if I ever have any)? He really makes you think about your own life and that what I love about him. His show MAD ABOUT YOU, made me think of my life as well. Good for you Paul Reiser!!
