In the number-one New York Times best seller Couplehood, Paul Reiser wrote about the highs and lows of falling in love and getting married - and the heartbreak and hilarity that comes with it. In Babyhood, he turned his sharply observant eye to the experiences of having a brand-new family. And now in Familyhood, Reiser shares his observations on parenting, marriage, and mid-life with the wit, warmth, and humor that he's so well-known for.

From the first experience of sending his two boys off to summer camp - the early feelings of gleeful freedom in an empty house, to realizing how empty the house actually was - to maneuvering the minefield of bad words learned at school, this hilarious new book captures the spirit of familyhood, the logical next frontier for Reiser's trademark perspective on the universal truths of life, love, and relationships.

    " Fast easy read, I think I read in a 4 hr car trip. Paul Reiser is hilarious on tv and in writing his books!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 2/4/2014

    " (Non-Fiction - Parenting) Reiser's latest proves that he's still hilarious, but he's also allowed himself to show his tender-hearted side in his third book. Reiser is getting to be a softie! I highly recommend it for parents. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 2/1/2014

    " i really liked this book for the first 1/2 but then sped through the rest - it got repetitive. also, this book reveals that the baby in 'babyhood' was born significantly premature. not sure if that fact makes me now like babyhood more or less... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula | 1/30/2014

    " Love, love, love Paul reiser! Always have, always will. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 12/31/2013

    " I could relate to a lot of this book very easy read, funny and honest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gayle | 12/18/2013

    " Cute and humorous book about raising a family. I could relate to many chapters even though the kids in the book are two sons. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikie | 12/14/2013

    " ok. Going to admit right here that I have had a long-running crush on Paul Reiser. I also wondered if he spoke in real life like he wrote for Mad About You. Still have the crush-and yes, he is the same. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 kathi | 11/24/2013

    " There was some humor and lots of parts I could relate to with a nod of my head. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 10/24/2013

    " I thought it was well written with a lot of humor. I could almost hear him speaking. It was an honest depiction of family life with all the fun and the heartache too. I really enjoyed reading it; he seems to really enjoy his family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 10/7/2013

    " A very sweet and funny book on family. His love for his wife and sons just shines throughout. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcus Matherne | 10/5/2013

    " I liked this book because Mr. Reiser mirrors alot of the way I think about my family as he does his. It kind of struck me as odd. Perhaps he and I can hang out--although I don't think he would let me into his castle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 9/22/2013

    " Liked it. At times he gets overly schmaltzy, but I laughed out loud a few times and he knows alot of the peculiarities of parenting and always errs on the side of being loving and positive about his family and being a father. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Farrell | 7/18/2013

    " Loved couple hood, but couldnt get through this one "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 7/3/2013

    " Funny and touching book about Paul Reiser, comedian from "Mad About You" tv series. Used some stories for the humorous portion of the Toastmasters club meeting one night. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cortino | 5/29/2013

    " No great new insights gleaned from Paul's personal views on fatherhood, family, and parenting, just another refreshing look into the mind of a man who is doing the best he can to provide solid grounding for his kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie Matoren | 12/21/2012

    " I have always been a big fan of Paul Reiser - since his Mad About You days. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 11/23/2012

    " Not as good as his two previous books, but a quick read with some moments of charm. It helps that I loved him in "Mad About You." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephenie | 10/19/2012

    " Highly recommend! Not only was it very funny, it was also very sweet and tender. Makes me want to re-read his other two books and watch reruns of "Mad About You." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alaina Shoemaker | 6/2/2012

    " I laughed through the whole book, thinking "yep," or "that's my family." A real look at a modern family, the good, the bad, and the funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Fowler | 3/31/2012

    " Not nearly as good as "Couplehood" an "Babyhood". Still a Reiser, though. "
