Basically, this book is hilarious. I suspect that if I had young kids I would multiply that hilarity exponentially, but I think Gaffigan does a great job of appealing to the non-parents as well as those with kids. His book is about being a father and most of his humor revolves around his children, so it may not be the best book for everyone. However, I found his stories and sense of humor transcended my lack of parenting knowledge.
Obviously, this is an ideal choice for parents, especially parents of young children. I think it will also appeal to those who have enjoyed humorous celebrity memoirs along the lines of Bossypants and Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? For the record, I rank it as less funny than Bossypants but more funny than Mindy Kaling's book. I think it will also appeal to those who are interested in a less crude, more clean type of humor. If you find yourself looking for un-offensive comedians, you should definitely check out Gaffigan.
