Synopsis

In Dad is Fat, stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan, who’s best known for his legendary riffs on Hot Pockets, bacon, manatees, and McDonald's, expresses all the joys and horrors of life with five young children—everything from cousins ("celebrities for little kids") to toddlers’ communication skills (“they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news”), to the eating habits of four year olds (“there is no difference between a four year old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor”). Reminiscent of Bill Cosby’s Fatherhood, Dad is Fat is sharply observed, explosively funny, and a cry for help from a man who has realized he and his wife are outnumbered in their own home.

Great read
March 30th, 2014
As a father of 5 myself and very involved with raising my kids, as the author is I found this book very humorous and could relate to almost every topic/scenario. It probably helps that I have a similar sense of humor. I think most would find it hilarious. Required reading for any dad, especially if you have 3 or more kids.

A wee chortle

I cannot possibly relate to the trials and tribulations of the writer in relation to volume of kids, but I do have five kids embodied by one son and could totally relate to many of his experiences. I snort-laughed on more than one occasion, as will anyone who is trying to raise kids in an urban environment. I wish the Gaffigans much success in their quest for a bigger apartment.

Never read a page without laughing. If you are a parent or know a parent of young kids, it's an absolute must.

An excellent read. Jim Gaffigan is able to make you laugh throughout the book with anecdotes that the reader can very often relate to... His message about families and relationships is passed on via the clean brand of humor the author is known and appreciated for. I certainly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read with a smile on their face...

If you enjoy Jim Gaffigan's stand-up material then you will definitely enjoy this book! Amidst the jokes and funny stories there were actually a number of interesting insights concerning parenthood and marriage.
