Navel Gazing True Tales of Bodies Mostly Mine But Also My Mom's Which I Know Sounds Weird

Dical diagnosis Michael begins a laugh out loud examination of health happiness and the human body from the perspective of a settled and sedentary husband and father of two With the trademark wit that has made Michael’s other books popular favorites Navel Gazing is a heartfelt and poignant memoir about coming to terms with growing older and the inevitability of death It is also a self depre. One of my favorite genres is people laugh at terrible things that happened It s certainly how I deal with tragedy in my own lifeMichael Ian Black whom you might recognize from comedy specials and movies uses humor to deal with his mom s cancer and his own insecurities in this book The book is made up of short stories and anecdotes that are tied together by this theme There s a lot of laughs and some touching moments These made me appreciate my own mom even and consider giving her a copy but these were often followed by hilarious sexual content that she would not find as amusing as I didIt s a pretty uick read that is relatable funny and moving in all the right places Recommended to fans of funny memoirs and comedians

Read Navel Gazing True Tales of Bodies Mostly Mine But Also My Mom's Which I Know Sounds Weird

Cating and deliciously frank remembrance of exercise failures finding out he is part Neanderthal and almost throwing down with fellow author Tucker MaxMichael Ian Black may not have the perfect body Or be the perfect father Or husband Or son But you will laugh as you recognize yourself in his attempts to do better And inevitably falling short You’ll laugh you’ll cry you’ll call your mom. Anyone who knows me will understand how weird it is that Michael Ian Black is one of my favorite authors I have not watched TV since 1991 except international sporting events and presidential debates and I did not know that he was an actor the first time I downloaded his book You re Not Doing It Right on Audible the audiobook site I was just looking for a funny book and saw that it was highly rated and it was in the comedy section But that book was so hilarious that I have now listened to it at least five times and so when I heard that his latest book was out I also looked for it on Audible It only took me a couple days to listen to this and when I finished an hour or so ago while running errands I immediately just started the book up again I don t think it s uite as funny as You re Not Doing It Right but it is still hilarious and well worth several listens What I like so much about Black as an author is that he s both funny and deep While you will get a lot of laughs listening to his tales you also get a really meaningful and relatable exploration of all the emotions that drive us as human beings love fear of death embarrassment etc He s not afraid to be vulnerable and that s why his book is able to hit both the funny notes and the deep ones I recommend his books as audiobooks because he actually reads them himself and I think the delivery makes them even funnier

    This is the first of Michael Ian Black's that I have read In fact I didn't even know he had written others until they were mentioned in this book but I'm a big fan of his television work so when I had the chance to read an early review copy of this book I jumped at the opportunity I wouldn't say this is anywhere close to the best book I've ever read but I have to commend it for being one of those books that feels like yo

    I'm not a book reader generally But I've been a fan of Michael Ian Black since I first saw him on Viva Variety back in the 90's and his previous book You're Not Doing It Right was a good readI can honestly say that Navel Gazing is one of the best books I've read in a very very long time A lot of this has to do with the number of striking parallels between Black's life and thoughts and my own Not our upbringing familial structure
