Rediscovering Bob Saget as a grown up after vague yet cheerful memories of Full House childhood tv is like retrieving this wine bottle you bought for a picnic that never happened due to rain. It jst got better with the years so that it only delights you when you dust it up. when is he coming to London?
Darn, someone beat me to the title to my review.
Bob does a swell job narrating, which receives the most praise in my review. I should mention, I know the Bob Saget of Comedy Central Roasts, stand-up and Howard Stern appearances. I know he was on Full House and AFV, but only by accidentally glancing across the shows during channel surfing. I went into this book, based on the title, looking for something tell-all-ish, something gutsy, maybe even a little wild, my hopes were dashed. It just isn't in here.
Bob and his family knows tragedy, no doubt. He loves his family and that is nice. He is a good father. Kudos. But, other than that, this book has little substance. He builds up these wild stories, on and on, creating the fantasy of a huge payoff and each time the story goes limp (nod to Bob and his love of male anatomy and flatulence jokes). Who else tells a story about going to pick up Rodney Dangerfield for a steak dinner only to learn he's been stood up in favor of Ron Jeremy and some hookers... and he leaves. What's the point of the story?! It all felt like a tease.
Oh, Bob, this book should have been titled much differently. Pffft.

I always have been a big fan of Bob Saget. I heard them on a podcast with Chris Hardwick and ever since then I feel like I can really relate to him more. This book is a great look into his mind. He was funny, caring, and then filthy to cover up his caring. I laughed out loud a few times listening to this. I just wish it was longer.
