More such reviews at people say that you need to purchase the audio book version. I was reading out loud so I guess that was just like having the audio book...??? He is hysterical and even if you don't have children or remember your own childhood, you will be smiling and noding along as you read.My parents were even in the car for some of it, and it had them chuckling in the back seat from all the memories of my teenage years no doubt. My husband and I checked the audiobook out from the library when we went on a road trip.
The series follows the lives of the Hennessy family, who in the second and third seasons, dealt with the loss of their father and family patriarch, Paul, and the next chapter in their lives.His humor or guffaw level is also somewhere in between, that is, his observations are funnier than Erma, but I've never gotten the fall down on the floor belly laughs that Dave can sometimes produce. Since when his kids were kids, and he didn't have a syndicated column yet.In fact, his career could be described as another blogger made good.The book is kind of a funny how to manual and running commentary on the care and feeding of two teenage daughters and a pre-teen boy.There is the expected chaos, the hormones, the constant state of crisis of the teenager's mind set, the physical changes, and the heart warming helplessness of the formerly protective parent no longer sure of what or how to protect his children.
