Publisher's Summary

The comedian, actor, television host, podcast king, and New York Times best-selling author of President Me, Not Taco Bell Material, and In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks now lays down the law on the plight of the modern parent.
Parents, do you often think that if your kids had to grow up the way you did - without iPads, 70-inch flatscreen TVs, American Girl dolls, and Wi-Fi in the climate-controlled minivan - they might actually be better off? Do you feel underappreciated or ignored? Do you worry you're raising a bunch of spoiled softies who will never know how to do anything themselves - because you do everything for them? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need Daddy, Stop Talking.
Adam rips parenthood a new one, telling it straight about what adults must do if they don't want to have to support their kids forever. Using his own crappy childhood as a cautionary tale, and touting the pitfalls of the kind of helicopter parenting so pervasive today, Daddy, Stop Talking is the only parenting book you should ever read. Here, too, is sage advice to Adam's own kids - and to future parents - on what matters most: dating; drinking and drugs; buying your first house and car; puberty; and what kind of assholes his kids (and yours) should avoid becoming. Even if his own son and daughter pretty much ignore everything he says, you shouldn't. And you're welcome. Again.

More than just hilarious

I lived in LA for several years and laughed every time Adam came on the radio. It's so great that he reads his own audiobook. He drifts from the book a few times and that alone makes it worth listening to over reading it. This is the fastest I've ever gone through an audiobook. If you're easily offended, don't listen. Or better yet, listen, take it with a grain of salt and know that jokes are jokes. As a parent of two young children, it's incredibly relatable. There are some totally hilarious stories in it and a surprise appearance by two "characters" that is such a sweet treat. Not just a funny book, there is some genuinely great advice and at the end it's surprisingly quite inspiring. The man has some depth!
