Extremely good read. Very funny. The book deals with the many problems that we have to deal with in living with another person and raising children. All the embarrassments and downright funny things that happen to us all. This book is far superior to the printed version because it is read by the author and unlike many other authors that read their books, JCB brings real life to the written word.
