I only wish I had written this book first. Dear God, it's funny. I'm talking truly LOL-waking-up-my-husband-at-midnight funny. I enjoyed this book so much I gave up therapy. Seriously - Jerry Zezima IS the very modern model of a humor author, among other things which probably shouldn't be mentioned on a family show. OK. Really seriously, I bought copies of his book for all my dearest friends and family members for Christmas so they could experience the laughs without stealing my copy. ONLY BUY THIS BOOK IF YOU WANT A VERY FUNNY READ that will take you down a trail of memories you can truly laugh about now. I wish...I wish...I wish there were more "stars" to rate it. On a scale of 1 - 5, it's 100. Can't wait for his next book!!!!!

I learned a lot from this book. I learned that men get wedgies, too, that real men buy jewelry and have pedicures, and that beer making led to professional football. I was grateful for the thorough explanation of yoga which spared me the effort of finding out for myself. Jerry even makes doing a will look fun! This book is a laugh-out-loud antidote to the news. Can't wait for his next one!

Reading Jerry's book was as delightful as it was easy (nice, bite-sized chapters). And the more I read, the more I wanted to read. My favorite parts were a series of articles about his daughter's wedding and the piece "Ramona," about a family cat (Maybe I'm biased -- I have 8 rescued cats -- but it was a wonderful tribute, free of sticky sentimentality or declawed cliche). Some of Jerry's lines are laugh-out-loud hysterical, and powered not just by a razor-sharp wit, rich vocabulary, and deep pop culture literacy, but by a very, very big heart. When I finished the book, I simply felt much better and calmer about the world, and like I'd just made a wonderful new friend.

Jerry Zezima's hilarious book: Leave it to Boomer is more than just a fun romp through the life of a Modern Middle-age Man, as Zezima's subtitle suggests, but more a look at a father, husband and humorist, who in the space of 154-pages so eloquently and poignantly takes us on a journey through the landscape of his life. Each situation is guaranteed to have you laughing, and even crying as you journey with Zezima through the under-belly of what being a "Boomer" is all about in the best and worst of all possible ways.
I loved this book, Zezima's style is unique and up to its usual wry standards one expects from this veteran humor columnist.
As a parent myself, it all makes perfect sense, but when Jerry Zezima says it, it becomes art. Bravo on Leave it to Boomer, a book that should become a permanant might-table fixture.

I loved this book so much, I bought two copies for sharing. Zezima's humor and his signature play on words is a guaranteed lift, page after page. Any Boomer involved in child raising and family life will instantly identify. The award-winning humorist doesn't disappoint. He delivers on laugh out loud moments, and plenty of them.
