Big Daddy's Rules May 17 2013
By Sheri Newton - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Big Daddy's Rules by Steve Schirripa is a funny and honest account of the author's life raising two girls. Known for his acting skills as being a tough guy, Steve Schirripa shows readers that he can give excellent advice to parents out there, too.

Big Daddy's Rules is written by an actor of one of my all-time favorite TV series - The Sopranos. I was really excited to read this book, because even though I don't have kids, I am at that age where a lot of other people my age have kids, and certain things that parents and kids do annoys the (insert curse word here) outta me, too.

First of all, I have to admit, Steve Schirripa is truly funny. I honestly didn't know he was this hilarious. He also writes very well. The entire book is easy and fun to read. I found myself laughing out loud and agreeing with a huge percentage of what he comments on.

This is a great book for all parents out there to read, and hopefully they'll learn a thing or two from it, so Steve Schirripa won't consider them one of those parents who need to be slapped. I highly recommend it.

* Thank you to the publisher of Big Daddy's Rules, Touchstone, for providing me with a copy of this book for review. All opinions expressed are my own.

I absolutely loved this book. June 10 2013
By Charlotte Lynn - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Known for being an actor, Steve Schirripa tells the story of his life as being a dad. His old school rules and advice and his humor make this a perfect self help book for any parent of girls, especially teenage girls. His definition of Big Daddy is someone who is strong, devoted, and always looking out for his girls even if it means he is not the cool dad.

This book is informational but so funny and enjoyable. I have a tween and a teenager, both girls. The stories Steve shares in his story hit home with me. The stories of his kids pushing for more freedom, of dating, and of fighting were almost exactly the story of my life. I got ideas on how to react and how to approach some issues. As a mom I saw a lot more of my husband in Steve's reactions then myself in his reactions and thoughts. They made me laugh and shake my head.

I absolutely loved this book. I laughed, I cried (when he left his daughter at college), and I read... and read...and read. I could not stop. Anyone, Mom or Dad, who has teenage girls will relate to Steve. This could be labeled as self-help or parenting, but it is so much more. I will certainly recommend this to my fellow parents.

A great handbook for dads May 20 2014
By m pollard - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was a laugh out loud, tissue please, handbook for dads. As situations came up in the story I could definitely sympathize. I have two daughters (14 and 20) and three granddaughters. I loved this book and shared it with my husband - who enjoyed it! I would recommend this to anyone who has girls!!

I bought it for my husband. He has read a few chapters and likes it. So far he would recommend it.
