Oct. 19 2010 Chicken Soup for the Soul
Readers will be amused, comforted, and encouraged by stories about “nutty” families just like their own, and realize we all have the same family matters and what really matters is families. A quirky and fun holiday book, and a great bridal shower or wedding gift!

Nearly everyone thinks their own family is “nutty" or at least has one or two nuts. With 101 stories of wacky yet lovable relatives, funny foibles, and holiday meltdowns, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Family Matters is often hilarious and occasionally poignant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Chicken Soup book! Dec 2 2010
By Cherise Kachelmuss - Published on
Everyone has that crazy aunt, uncle, brother or at least an experience with an odd family member. I have many memories from Christmas parties, so many that we don't even have parties anymore due to the craziness! This Chicken Soup book "Family Matters" is all about the craziness in our families! I can relate to many of the stories, others made me laugh so hard I almost peed, others made me feel like maybe my family isn't that crazy! It is full of 101 great stories that are sure to cheer you up, make you smile, and make you feel like you are not alone! "Family Matters" is so far my favorite Chicken Soup for the Soul book. I also think it would be a great gift for anyone anytime!

4.0 out of 5 stars There are others just like you... Jan. 28 2011
By Jewelry Whisperer - Published on
Do you have a crazy family? Yes, I do too!

Do you love your family with all your heart yet wish there were days that you could just run away from them? At least for a little while? Me too!

When I refer to "this" is generally a reference to my extended family and not my children and husband. Sorry mom and sisters...just being honest....but I wouldn't trade any of them for anything.

"They" are the reason I am "me"

Reading Family Matters from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series enforced the idea of what "family" truly is. Family doesn't mean perfect and peaceful everyday of the week but does mean that there is a unity, a protection and a silliness that is only evident with those we love.

Reading Family Matters will take you on an emotional journey from silly to serious. You laugh and relate to many of the stores and you will also cry and empathize with the situations described.

You know the saying..."You can choose your friends...but you can't choose your family", right? Well with Family Matters you can also choose to laugh right along with other families and realize that you are not alone in this crazy life. There are others that are just like you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Take my mother-in-law. Please. March 21 2013
By NinaSchatzkamerMiller - Published on
This is not a typical Chicken Soup book. In addition to the heartwarming stories there are some that are just hilarious, like Gretchen Bauer's story about her mother-in-law. I get such a clear picture of the subtle digs and snide remarks that I feel like I'm getting the inside story from Gretchen as though I'm a friend. It's not mean-spirited, it's just the kind of stuff that would be shared over the fence between neighbors.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nutty families? No. Some were pretty bland Jan. 18 2011
By lohmalinda - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found some of the stories too tame for this title. I expected families at least as crazy as my own. Instead, a few of these were absolutely normal! Just not what I expected from the title about "nutty" families.
