Take it from a man whose family background includes brawls, visits from "aliens," star-billing on FBI wanted posters, and, oh yes, an altercation with the Swedish Mafia - families can be brutal! But because we all have one, Louie Anderson has written this honest, funny, and brilliant survival manual for anyone who's ever choked on the F Word.
Long before he became one of America's favorite comedians, Louie Anderson was one of eleven children in a Minnesota family headed by an alcoholic father who was all for having kids but clueless about supporting them. It was the kind of childhood you have to learn to laugh at to survive, yet it yielded rich dividends: a host of hilarious and heart-breaking stories, as well as 49 Survival Tips stamped with true wisdom.
From letting go of the past to learning the right lessons from it, from getting to the bottom of those dear old family myths to avoiding the family role you played when you were six years old, The F Word will help you talk the talk, know what genes you're wearing, change the script, get into your in-laws, and stop comparing your family to the Cleavers.
Big-hearted, smart, and always brutally honest, The F Word is one man's guide to being good to your family by learning how to be good to yourself.
Includes bonus comedy material!
