The F Word: How to Survive Your Family by Louie Anderson, Carl Kurlander

Take it from a man whose family background includes brawls, visits from "aliens," star-billing on FBI wanted posters, and, oh yes, an altercation with the Swedish Mafia -- families can be brutal! But because we all have one, Louie Anderson has written this honest, funny, and brilliant survival manual for anyone who's ever choked on... THE F WORD Long before he became one of America's favorite comedians, Louie Anderson was one of eleven children in a Minnesota family headed by an alcoholic father who was all for having kids but clueless about supporting them. It was the kind of childhood you have to learn to laugh at to survive, yet it yielded rich dividends: a host of hilarious and heartbreaking stories, as well as 49 Family Survival Tips stamped with true wisdom.

This book is good and interesting to read. It has a good message. I would recommend it for serious family problems and pleasure reading. Louie attempted to bond with his family instead of running from them. I have done quite a bit of running from my family but at one point decided to do the same thing Louie did. It was successful because I acted pleasant even though I didn't want to. In the end I did just as the title of my review. I left after my coping ability ran out. Read this book. I brought it because I saw Louie speak on television about the coping ability title of my review. I loved what he said and immediately went out and brought the book.
