Having said that, Foxworthy's auto-biography revolves around his life growing up "Redneck" style. His early life in rural Georgia is chronicled in humurous detail, and his narrative is fairly light and easy to read and enjoy. He talks about getting started in Comedy, how he met his wife, and the birth of his daughters, all of it with a fun little wink and a light heart to make sure the reader is playing along. Unlike Engvall or Cable Guy's book, this one could be shelved either in humor or biography. An enjoyable read for anyone with an afternoon to kill.
"Its better to be raped with an axe then read this book".
Niezche said that. he really did
This book is a series of anecdotes, supposedly from throughout Jeff Foxworthy's life. Reading through these stories is like talking with a fisherman. While you suspect what you are being told is not entirely accurate, there seems to be a ring of truth to it.
The book is filled with stories from throughout Jeff's life from childhood to adulthood. Various topics are discussed such as work life, love, marriage, fishing, hunting, and family. Most stories were worth a smile. Some made me laugh out loud. Then there were a handful of stories that were 2 minutes of my life that were wasted and I will never get back.
So how do you know if this book is right for you? Do you find Jeff Foxworthy's stand-up funny? Would you read a story about a guy jumping off the back of a pickup into a pile of hay and think "Yeah, we have done something like that"? Do you actually know someone who has shot a deer from the inside of their house? If you have heard stories such as this, you will probably like this book.
Having spent half my childhood in the country, I identified with many of the stories, even if I do think they are not exactly the truth. The book was an easy read. As the book was comprised of stories no longer than a page or two in length, it was a great book to read while waiting for the kids at school or anyplace you have a few minutes to crack open a book and read. Overall, I found the book quite enjoyable.
The problem with this book is that you have to read it in a room by yourself, otherwise you'll have someone asking you what you're laughing at every couple of minutes. It is truly a funny book. If you don't believe me read it for your self and let me know if you didn't laugh, or at least giggle.

This book is full of anecdotes, some funnier than others. Not as funny as his other books.Published on January 13, 2009 by Enigma
This disappointing book is supposed to be the humorous life story of Foxworthy but it is just one lame set-up after another with never a payoff. Read morePublished on November 26, 2008 by Mediaman
