    One thought on “In the Event of My Untimely Demise: Twenty Things My Son Needs to Know”

    1. This gets off to a good start with author Brian Sack poignantly remembering the letter his mother left for him (she died of breast cancer when he was a young man). It's a heartfelt moment in the book and sets a nice tone.As the pages turn, however, the book moves from this sentimental premise to something closer to a memoir or set of anecdotes. What was meant to be a message for Sack's own sons turns into a chance for the author to insert jokes at every possible opportunity. This can't-turn-a-jo [...]

    2. I'm still reading this book, but so far it's been a disappointment. The humor seems forced, and the funny, telling stories has been simply sad or predictable so far. More to come as I read more. At least it looks like a quick read.Update. I've finished the book now. Although it did get better, I cannot say it's anything I would recommend. I think this topic has so much opportunity. What's funnier that the things you tell your kids, and the stories associated? Again, the humor seemed forced, alth [...]

    3. The author's most prized possession is a letter received from his mother after she died when he was 12. This book is a letter written to his own son giving his advice on everything from love to career and life goals. He relates his own life experiences and how he feels about his son. I loved this book. Lots of humor mixed with good advice.

    4. As much as this topic is overdone, Brian Sack still pulls together some interesting bits of advice. A few passages here and there are truly worth the time it takes to get through this short book of accumulated wisdom as passed down to one's offspring.

    5. It was a good book. There were fantastic parts, where I was thinking, YES! And then, there were other parts where I was thinking more along the lines of, huh? Overall, it was fun and interesting and got me thinkig about what I want to teach and leave for my own children.

    6. This book was just silly. I was pleasantly surprised at the absurd and yet loving advice. Definitely a fun read and it only took me a few hours.

    7. this book is rather funny, and is a man's perspective on child-rearing, and has some good insights, so far, it's a good read.

    8. I was sold on this book when I read the introduction which was not only funny but surprisingly deep for a humor book. Overall it was very witty and had me laughing a lot. I really liked this book.

    9. Really good book. I think he tries a little too hard in places, but its a great idea and from the heart, with a twist of humor

    10. it seemed so promising and witty at first, but failed to live up to that promise after just a few chapters
