    1. The Owner s Manual to Terrible Parenting is the third book in Guy Delisle s series of humorous sketches as a bad parent after A User s Guide to Neglectful Parenting and Even More Bad Parenting Advice and unfortunately the schtick is starting to get old It s still enjoyable, it just feels a little played out at this point Like when he throws his butane lighter onto some hot coals to make it explode and stress out his son, or when he teaches his daughter to say son of a bitch , or when he eats thr [...]


    2. This has a similar title to what I think is DeLisle s somewhat successful A User s Guide to Neglectful Parenting DeLisle does books that explore different cultures China, Korea, others, but I am guessing the first parenting book might have proved to be his most successful, building on his snarky sense of humor and a popular topic than Korea This is essentially UGNP volume two, and is carefully developed, a series of strips, and maybe better artistically, polished, whereas the first one seeme [...]





    3. Guy has written several of these little short quick cartoons about his life as a stay at home father to his two children His wife works for Doctors without Borders, which is why his other books are about his travels as the traveling spouse.Like his two other books about parenting, this is cute and very true to life In fact, I have felt the same way about plane travel as he does in one story where his son asks him if he is afraid of flying, and he said he was afraid of something happening if he [...]


    4. I picked up this graphic novel thinking the simplistic comics might provide a few laughs for someone who works with kids all day It started strong with a funny bit on teaching grammar in the middle of an exciting passage from Harry Potter, and quickly went downhill from there I should have picked this up from the name but a lot of the comics actually ARE about terrible parenting, which is not a bit funny to me Happily, the whole things only took about 30 minutes to read, and my partner, who was [...]


    5. Publishers beware the books that have words like terrible in the title It s just too easy But really this was just okay A couple of smiles from some material that looked like it came out of a sketchbook or something Or maybe old restaurant menus But it doesn t have the virtuosity of Crumb s similar stuff, so I ask What s the point


    6. Another great little book in this series Showcasing the hypocritical do as I say, not as I do , unintentionally scaring the bejebus out of kids with reality and cynicism, and just general goofiness of parenting Very very quick read, minimal artwork Good stuff.


    7. A hilarious parenting book, that is honest and funny at the same time, it shed light on how to deal with children in a positive and a humorous manner


    8. 3.5Toujours aussi rigolo, mais un peu moins effet nouveaut que le tome 1 J adore Delisle alors je lirai tous les autres quand m me.


    9. Le guide du mauvais p re 3 c est du pareil au m me, tr s similaire aux deux premiers volumes Mais comme on en redemande toujours chaque nouveau volume est le bienvenue Cette fois il s agit de dix neuf petites histoires d une dizaine de pages 6 18 pages o un p re un peu go ste et amoral abuse psychologiquement ses enfants de son humour tordu, parfois sans vraiment sans rendre compte.Comme je l ai d j dit pour les deux premiers volumes, c est un petit bijou fort amusant mais trop bref, car deux il [...]


    10. Simple et dr le C est un cadeau de ma copine qui est enceinte Certain gags font vraiment mouche, alors que d autre sont un peu pr visible Je n ai pas les deux autres, mais j ai le go t d acheter de le premier.


    11. Tout comme les deux premiers tomes, le livre est dr le encore plus que les deux premiers je trouve avec une lecture simple et rapide un bon livre pour se changer les id es Il y a peut tre une ou deux histoires qui sont moins amusantes que le reste de la BD.


    12. For some reason this book Owner s Manual to Terrible Parenting ISBN 9781770462144 is listed as a new edition of a User d Guide to Neglectful Parenting ISBN9781770461178 It is not They are two completely separate books.


    13. Honestly, I was expecting something stupid and or mean I was pleasantly surprised that this book contained both intelligence and affection, and yes, it was still humorous I can use of this type of humor.


    14. I already got some humor out of Delisle from other comics I read from him but this ones this ones are something else extremely funny I read all the three volumes and I am super sad he didn t release any


    15. Oh, the humanity Clever illustrations and clear, funny dialogue I love the part where his son references the bad dad book Guy Delisle s fantastic I d read his grocery list illustrated, of course.


    16. This is a super easy read that is relatable to kids and parents alike It speaks a lot of truth to the unthought through mistakes one can make as a parent and to the things kids remember after they are grown Fun and fast, for sure.


    17. You can just check out my previous short review My wife loves these thus the buying , but they are getting meh to me.


    18. Great book, all in cartoons I see myself doing many of these things The first chapter is the dad reading Harry Potter Dad Harry put on on his cloak of invisibility and ran quickly down the hall quickly is it an adverb or an adjective Daughter Dad Just Read .
