Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
04/21/2014
Stand-up comedian and blogger Good, father of two young sons, finds that being a dad is perfect fodder for jokes and comedic introspection. Here, he presents 71 humor-filled lists, with topics ranging from “How to Defend Yourself Against a Toddler Attack” and “Games You Can Play While Lying Down” to “Love Hurts: Especially My Shoulder.” Good offers advice that parents are unlikely to hear elsewhere, such as suggestions that couples sleep in separate beds and schedule intercourse for once a week so that one parent feels like they are “doing it in a hotel” when that night rolls around. He proposes inventive uses for baby wipes (cleaning mulch off a hotdog, crushing bugs) alongside tips on how to eat cookies while wearing a ski mask. In addition to child-centered lists, Good includes a sweet ode to his wife that applauds her patience and confidence, in spite of the fact that she enjoys eating goat cheese that smells like “the foot of a medieval peasant.” Parents will appreciate Good’s offbeat outlook and quirky one-liners.

From the Publisher
"Jason Good might be known casually as the Dad blogger who made it big, but that's simplifying things. His blog is great, but his first book is even better."

    This book is hillarious and refreshingly honest. I would highly recommend it to families in the thick of rearing small children. It's laugh out loud funny and gives you the sense that you are not alone in all your private parenting moments, funny, frustrating, or otherwise.
