Comic advice to husbands and fathers

  • Jul 25, 2009
  • by
Ray Romano has written a very funny book about the challenges of marriage and parenthood, staying in character with the sad sack, loveable loser we know and love from Everybody Loves Raymond. It's not an autobiography, although he includes references to his family; instead it's a stand-up comedy routine with gags and punch lines and just a few brief glimpses into the real loving husband and father.

This is a short book with very large spacing, so it's a quick read. It did drag a bit toward the end, almost as if he ran out of jokes, but the rest is comedy gold. You can just picture him rolling his eyes, hanging his head, and delivering the lines with Ray Barone's deadpan expression. It would be fun to listen to the audio book. If you're a fan of his show, you'll love this book. I did.

About the reviewer
About this book


In a book that is at once laugh-out-loud funny and all-too-true to life, comedy-talent-turned-television-star Ray Romano goes home again, revealing that the source of his inspiration is heritage, hearth and family. As did his stand-up comedy and his present, top-rated CBS-TV program, Romano draws on his real-life experience as a husband, a father, a father of twins, a son with parents living very very close, and a brother, to make readers laugh and laugh harder.
