Benjamin Wallace is absolutely hilarious . . . and a complete mess (his wife must be a saint!). I have read several of his books and often find myself having to read excerpts to my husband because they made me laugh so hard I was interrupting his TV shows and he got curious as to what tickled me so.

I strongly encourage those who enjoy good, clean humor to take a moment - most of his books are short stories and don't take long to read at all - to sit back, relax and release some good hardy laughs with any of Mr. Wallace's books.

It seems that men and women truly tend to take each other much more seriously in today's society, and gender stereotypes are considered rather dangerous. This means that poking fun at gender differences and tendencies is generally frowned upon. This book was indeed a refreshing read because it does the unthinkable--makes fun of the typical white husband in the typical suburban household. The collection of short stories was quite an easy, enjoyable read. It was nice to see men who weren't afraid to act like "real men." It is almost a throw-back to the old sitcoms that depict the husband as dumb, lazy, and ruled by logic. Indeed this is satire at its finest. My favorite story was the first about the grocery store because it is exactly what men do in that situation! And the book is enriched by having a male author. It is more acceptable to have a man make fun of himself.

I will say that the profanity did somewhat ruin the book for me. Now, don't get me wrong. I get it--guys do tend to use more colorful language than men. And I did not mark the book down for this. All I am saying is that I prefer to read that the character swore or used an expletive rather than reading what was said. I also found that my interest began to wane somewhat towards the end. I think that the book is meant to read as several short stories at random times. In other words, should you decide to read the book, don't read it in one sitting. I took great delight in every story with the exception of the last. It was a little lengthier than the others, and I believe I would have engaged with the story more if it had been shorter.

Notwithstanding, I can recommend this book to most of you out there.

.....actually, I laughed so hard that I had twin rivers running down my cheeks. There's just enough of the familiar, combined with the outrageously absurd, that makes it a laugh-out-loud page-turner. I highly recommend it for anyone who's looking for a fun, relaxing jaunt into a parallel suburban universe.

Everybody knows the Dumb White Husband. Whether we are married to him or live next door to him (or if we ARE him!) These short stories of being a dad, a husband, and a home owner are hilarious. I had to take several breaks to finish laughing before I could continue reading. The short stories kept everything fresh and new. Ben Wallace has an amazing sense of humor and great insight. Thank you for educating us, DWH. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone, and have already begun passing on my recommendations to friends and relatives!

This is one of the funniest books I have ever read. I read this in one sitting. I can't tell you how many times I had tears running down my face and I laughed so hard I couldn' t breath.

All of the stories were great. The only one I wasn't that crazy about was the last one. Dumb White Husband For President. But all of the others were spectacular.

I would recommend this book highly. I purchased the other Dumb White Husbands Zombie series also. I can't wait to start them. If you want to read a very enjoyable book, buy this one.

I thought the author captured "dumbness" in a very entertaining way. His writing is clever and pretty dang amusing. Who better than a man to write a book about the occasional failings of husbands, (and part of that sentence should be in quotes)? I thought he nailed it very well. I bet Benjamin Wallace is a naturally funny guy in person..

Funny at times. Not always. The novelle at the end was not as good as the shorter stories before. Stories are a bit ofer the top but will have you laughing at some points. Enjoyable read but you finish it feeling you havent gained much
