Cheeseboy Book Club: Yes, You're Pregnant, But What About Me?

I know what you're thinking - this book is all about a pregnant woman whining and crying about being pregnant and her husband's whining and crying about her whining and crying about it.  If you think that, you would be only partially right.

This book is much more than a simple memoir about a pregnancy.  Essentially, it is the life story of Kevin Nealon, culminating in the greatest moment of his life; the birth of his son.  The stories are captivating and the humor is spread thick throughout.  

If you enjoy my writing style, you certainly would enjoy this book.  I am not comparing myself to a professional writer. Well in a way, sure I am. What I mean is that he will be telling the main thrust of his story and he will think of another story that is even more engaging than his first story.  He will then go off on a tangent to prove the point that he was trying to make in his first story.  While this sounds frustrating, it is often done with hilarious affect and you become more caught up in the new story than the one he originally started to tell.  He does, however, always return to the main point of the book; his journey from boyhood to fatherhood.  

So, give it a read.  But you don't have to take my word for it!

Hey Abe, I probably won't be reading this book BUT I would certainly read one of yours if you decide to publish one :). Actually, I do remember you publishing one many many years ago. I believe it involved a hobbit or troll???
