Dad is Fat by Jim Gaffigan

In comedian Jim Gaffigan's Dad is Fat, he reflects on his journey to become a father and the adventures he's had with his wife and five children. He begins his collection of essays by telling of his single days and how he viewed couples with children, "I often view other parents the way I view other comedians. I have great respect for them, but I always assume they are crazy. I'm usually right."

I decided to read this after a coworker handed the book to me and told me to read the chapter entitled A Critical Analysis of Children's Literature. As a children's librarian I'm usually skeptical when people poke fun at great children's books, but it was very amusing! He covers many topics, from child birth to Santa Claus, in his clean, dry sense of humor which any audience would enjoy. This is the funniest book I have read in a long time.
