Review quote

This is the best book of embarrassing and strange photos of people who look like my family that I have ever seen. Judd Apatow (Superbad, Knocked Up, and 40 Year Old Virgin) I wept with laughter fourteen times while reading this book and snorted aloud twice. I dare you to find a higher weep/snort ratio in any other publication. Karen McCullah Lutz, screenwriter of Legally Blonde and The Ugly Truth Anything that both makes me laugh and think my family isn't so embarrassing deserves to be a book. Joel Stein, Time magazine columnist The most remarkable thing here is that people are willing to share such indignity with the world, but we're glad that they have because it's internet gold. The Guardian This is genius! Graham Norton Being a test tube baby doesn't seem such a bad idea after looking at these folks. I laughed till it hurt. To paraphrase Tolstoy... every family is freaky in its own way. David Byrne
