Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Comedian and actor Nealon (best known for his characters on Saturday Night Live and his role on Weeds) makes his print debut with comedic content so potent readers will surely demand future books. Nealon is a first-time father with his second wife, actress Susan Yeagley, and detailing the male point of view on pregnancy, he writes about the events that led to the birth of their son in 2007. The 53-year-old Nealon considers becoming a father while also anticipating death: It wasn't over for me yet, but I felt I was 'circling the drain'. However, at age 34, Susan was still pregnantable, as he puts it. Thus the merry parental dance began. Beneath the jokes, Nealon swims in poignant undercurrents, discussing his relationship with Susan, recalling his childhood and reflecting on life in general. Digressions lead to such jests as: Why do some people get their stomach stapled? What if you wanted to just lose a little weight? Could you paperclip your stomach? Fellow humorists Benchley and Thurber would probably nod in admiration at Nealon's ability to insert a bon mot or clever phrase into almost every paragraph of this very funny navigation from pregnancy to parenthood.

Nealon was always one of my favorites on SNL...(and now Weeds). He's always come across as one of those guys who loves what he's doing (unlike those comedian dips who do it only to feed their egos). That said, I didn't hestitate much when it came time to peel out the Mastercard for this one. I'm 29 years-old with no wife or kids, but this book still had me chuckling throughout. And if you're a late bloomer like him (and I), you'll be laughing out loud. He also really does a good job with translating his dry sense of humor to the pages.

My husband and I are expecting our first baby in December. When we saw the cover of this book we giggled. I ordered it from Amazon as soon as it was released and gave it to my husband. From the first page to the last, he laughed and laughed. So much that I would get somewhat annoyed;) However, this book was a great tool for him to see that I'm not the only pregnant woman on the planet that is a bit crazy. Also, Kevin talked about all the changes that would occur as well as the items one needs to purchase for a baby. I had been telling my husband how expensive strollers were (well, at least the one that I am going to buy) and he would have nothing to do with the conversation. Once he read the section on strollers he said "you know, you are right, strollers are like cars for babies!" We discussed strollers on a more rational level and now we both cannot help but check out all the strollers at the park and compare them.

Moms-to-be: buy this for your mate. Yeah, it may be sarcastic. And Yeah, it's not as technical as What to Expect...but I don't know very many men that want to read traditional birthing books. This book was a great preparation book and it opened up many conversations between the two of us.

I sat down and read the book in one sitting and laughed until my stomach hurt-which I know the baby loved. I hope Kevin writes a book about toddlers.

SO FUNNY! Really gives some humor to what can be a very stressful time. His humor is light-hearted. My husband and I both really enjoyed the book!

I saw Kevin less than a year ago doing his stand-up routine at a comedy club, so while reading this book I couldn't help but picture him standing on stage doing his performance. A few of the jokes in the book I remember from his on-stage act, however for those that have seen him perform don't worry, this repetition is only for a small amount of material and it makes the book even more entertaining.

As a fairly new father, I found the book to be extremely funny. It is the first book I have read in a long time that had me laughing out loud regularly. Kevin's child was born less than two months after my own, so many of the topics he talks about are still very fresh in my mind. The truth behind many of the jokes mixed with Kevin's personality (and at times subtle wit) make this an excellent book for any new parent.

I would recommend this book to anyone who has or will be having children! It really does give you heads up on what is important to you before and after children come into our lifes. This book will have you laughing out loud til your in tears. It reminds you as a parent how children are the most important part of our lives and they should not be taken advantage of. All they want is you in there life til they reach that age where there friends kick in and you wonder where it all went. You get to live again through their eye just for alittle while. Keep them close and you will miss out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!GET THIS BOOK

This was pretty darn funny. My only beef is that there were times when I wish he would be serious for just ONE moment, you know? (and in all fairness, there actually WERE a few, but they would last for one sentence or so. Reminded me of a guy I went to college with who was literally NEVER serious; people like that are hiding from something. Now, I know Nealon is a COMEDIAN, so my beef is sort of dumb). Overall, it was really funny.

I enjoy this man's stand up, and his writing is also fun. My wife didn't think the title was so funny, but I enjoyed myself anyway. I didn't get any practical advice on being a first time father that you wouldn't have received anyway, but the commentary was great.
