Yes, not really that funny, but very interesting to read from somebody who grew up when life was not politically correct and mollycoddling. Jay Mohr (ex-SNL) reminds us of when you didn't to be covered in helmets and pads to ride a bike, your parents did not bother you, unless it was time for dinner, and you didn't have busybody's interfering with your fun (for example when you and your friends were climbing on top of garage roofs in the alley).
I enjoyed his other book much more, "Two Years in the Trenches of Saturday Night Live", but this one is for parents, and those nostalgic of 1970s/80s childhood and want to compare it to today.

I like funny books, so I read a lot of books written by comedians, this book is not funny. I mean, God Bless Jay Mohr he sure does seem like a super loving dad, so this book is great for sappy love stories about how awesome your kid is, and I skipped around to different stories to give him a chance, but it was all just sappy stuff about how perfect his kid is. I'm not a parent, so this book didnt appeal to me and didnt give me a laugh. But maybe parents find it hilarious?

A pleasant mix of humour and touching moments.
