Listening to Paul Reiser "read" the unabridged audiocassette version of Babyhood is a lot like attending a private performance of a one-man stand-up comedy show--without the hecklers. In his quintessential New York accent, the Mad About You star speaks directly to his audience in a conversational, fast-paced, and spirited voice. Of course, the subject matter is babies--those that are still a twinkle in their parents' eyes, those growing in their mother's bellies, and those that have emerged from the womb, ready to test their parents' new-found skills with every change of the diaper.

Reiser shares insights into a host of subjects that one doesn't necessarily consider when approaching parenthood. For instance, while attending a barbecue party, he finds himself discussing body parts and body functions not usually tossed around with strangers. "I certainly understand in theory that if you're going through an event as universal and wondrous as childbirth, and especially if you're having difficulties, there is benefit in sharing. But the reality is I ... I don't feel like discussing my genitalia with anybody." Reiser's enthusiasm for his subject is apparent, which makes for a humorous foray into the magical world of Babyhood.

Review "This book hits home and hits the funnybone, for the couple considering parenthood as well as for parents who are decades past their days of diaper changing."--"Chicago Tribune"Reiser knows how to wrench a laugh from sticky situations. And in his life, since his firstborn arrived, every situation has been sticky or moist."--"Los Angeles Times"A fun read...Paul Reiser has put his delightfully humorous touch on life as a new parent."--"San Antonio Express-News"This book won't help you be a better parent, but it might put you in a better frame of mind about the whole experience..."Babyhood will be a nice read while you're rocking your own little one's cradle."--"Detroit News"An out-loud laugh on every page...Paul Reiser is one of the few stand-up comics-turned-sitcom-stars who can be genuinely funny in print..if you are thinking about having a baby, Reiser's "Babyhood is your indispensible...guide."--"San Francisco Chronicle
