Parenting Hell: The funniest gift you can give this Father’s Day
About this deal
I always enjoyed the Parenting Hell podcast (before it moved to Spotify and I couldn’t bring myself to move all my podcast listening over to Spotify too). This book is in the same mould as the podcast. Lots of funny anecdotes about parenting and it was nice to hear from Lou and Rose too and see the other side of the parenting from Rob and Josh. But these guys talk about coming home from a job tired only to have an excited toddler jumping around all evening in such a relatable way. I’m not sure I would have enjoyed the read as much had I been reading the book myself, and would have given it a 3 star rating.
Being a parent is the most amazing thing, though it's nice to be able to joke about all the little bumps along the way. The book Parenting Hell sees Rob and I share the challenges and madness of our parenting journeys with lashings of empathy and extra helpings of laughs. Filled with all the things they never tell you at antenatal classes, it’s a charming mixture of humour, rumination and conversation and is aimed at prospective parents, new parents, old parents and never-to-be parents alike.Now we have been given a book deal it is probably the time for me to admit to myself that complaining for an hour a week to Rob about my life has become the most successful thing I have done in 14 years in comedy. I can only imagine how much people will love it now they can read our moaning in book form rather than having to hear it coming from our annoying accents.
I love Rob and Josh, I listen to the podcast obsessively so the book was perfect for a fan like me! We had chapters from Rob and Josh in a conversational style, from their wives Lou and Rose, their parents and even their producer Michael!Join Josh and Rob as they share the challenges and madness of their parenting journeys with lashings of empathy and extra helpings of laughs. Filled with all the things they never tell you at antenatal classes, Parenting Hell is a beguiling mixture of humour, rumination and conversation for prospective parents, new parents, old parents and never-to-be parents alike.
