You don't have to understand Twitter to enjoy this book. It's not about hashtags or acronym lingo, it's about short bites of funny. Remember the "Quotable Quotes" and "All In A Day's Work" columns in Reader's Digest? It's like that: pithy, timely, and completely relevant to your life.
Here's an example from one of the contributors:

"One minute your kids are babies, and the
next you’re sleeping in till 9:30 a.m. because
they have the iPad and can reach the cereal.
— Amy Flory (@FunnyIsFamily)"

See what I mean? And if you are on Twitter, you'll find yourself reading this book with your smartphone in hand so you can follow the hilarious contributors for forever and ever.

This book would make a perfect gift for all of the procreators in your life. Just sayin'.

This is the good stuff. The tweets that make you snortle. The ones you read out loud to your better half. The ones you mention to your BFF next time you talk. The ones that really tick you off because you didn’t think of them first—or maybe that one’s just me.

More than 300 immediately recognizable, somehow original, and instantly funny parenting moments—each one enjoyable enough that reading it counts as me-time, even if someone is banging on your bathroom door.

Five stars for this book because I wrote some of the words in it. I was going to go with three stars, but I feel like I would have undervalued the words I wrote. Also, my therapist told me to work on my self esteem. Four stars probably would have been okay, but five seemed to fit. Six stars would have been more acceptable, but that wasn't an option. If Amazon makes it an option, I'll have to come back and give it six stars, which would be a chore I'd rather not do.

I like funny parenting jokes because they are funny. If you don't like funny stuff parenting jokes, steer clear of this book. There are many funny jokes in this book that will make you laugh in an out loud fashion. If you hate laughing, or if you've recently gone through surgery and it hurts to laugh, this book is not for you. Wait until the pain subsides and then buy the book. Or, buy the book but don't read it until you've completely recovered from surgery. If you've had surgery on your finger or toe, you might be okay to buy the book and read it. I'm mostly talking about if you've had surgery recently on your core area.

If you have had surgery recently and feel that laughing would be a painful thing, might I suggest buying the book and learning to internalize your laughing. What I mean by this is laughing on the inside, not the outside. I do this all the time when my spouse falls and gets hurt. I'd never do it if my wife fell and hurt herself seriously. First I check to make sure she is okay. "Are you okay, honey? Yes? Good." And then I laugh on the inside. I suggest this method if you recently have had surgery and would still would like to buy this book.

So, in conclusion, you should buy this book if you like to laugh and especially if you are a parent that likes to laugh. Steer clear if you recently have had surgery and it hurts to laugh unless you have taught yourself how to laugh on the inside only.

Fabulously funny! This book takes the best part of twitter - the folks who can be hilarious without succumbing to shock value or boorish language - and distills it down to the funniest of the funny. Real parents who understand the balance of serious and goofy when it comes to raising children in the real world. A recommended buy!

*I received an advance copy of this book* I read this book and begged to blurb it because I thought it was so funny. Do yourself a favor and buy this for YOU. Forget everyone else, YOU need this book. It's little bite size nuggets of funny one liners that made me laugh, snort, and cry a little. All of my favorite Twitter-ers (Tweeters? Twits?) are here and I was pleased to find some new ones to follow too.

So hysterically accurate and funny it hurts! Because I have young children, my attention span is about as long as a tweet, so this couldn't be a better book to have.

The perfect book for parents who want -- NEED -- to laugh, but don't have time to sit down and read a daunting book. Grab it, head to the bathroom and lock the door until they find you!

I know what you're thinking. "This book seems hilarious, but will it look great casually thrown on random surfaces in my home?"

Places this book looks great:

Within reach of the commode
Coffee tables with solid, see-through, and wine cork tops
In that magazine holder with the handle that falls off you bought at the flea market, currently holding all your copies of Southern Living, Forbes, or Family Fun
Granite counter tops or laminate ones you tried to paint because you saw the idea on Pinterest, even though your spouse was like, "Umm, not sure that's the best idea. What's Pinterest and why are you waiving that paint brush at the stove? Is that polcrylic you just poured down the sink?"
(Like my experience, maybe that didn't turn out so great, but that won't have any affect on how funny this book is.)

Why you? Why this book? Why now?

Mostly destiny. But also because the jokes lovingly curated from Twitter are hilarious, relatable, and so much shorter than starting A Tale of Two Cities.Unless you're reading that right now. In which case, go ahead finish because it's a classic and you want to be well-rounded, but then buy this book afterwards.

Because you know there's a decorative bowl of fruit you'd just love to set it next to after you're finished laughing uncontrollably.
