Audible Editor Reviews

Feeding the kids can be a daily battle, and in Shut Up and Eat, Kathy Buckworth offers a humorous report from the front lines. She describes strategies for dealing with clueless husbands, wannabe-vegan daughters, sons who get body parts stuck in their food, and the constant allure of canned pasta. She also provides recipes to help draw a temporary truce, or at least provide more projectiles. Buckworth's own able narration gives the performance the feel of a dispatch from a trusted friend - one well overdue for a glass of wine.

Publisher's Summary

In Shut Up and Eat!, humorist and parenting author Kathy Buckworth applies her razor-sharp wit to the family meal. Experts claim that sitting down to eat together can prevent children from getting into trouble while simultaneously creating close-knit families, but what about the son who thinks his food tastes better on the blue plate or the daughter who won’t eat anything green?

Laugh-out-loud funny and more accurate than most of us would care to admit Shut Up and Eat! is a must-listen for any woman who’s ever wondered: What the hell am I cooking tonight?

was told there would be humor. none in sight

the narration is monotone and gets irritating after a while. I'm glad I got it for free because I would have demanded a refund if I even spent a dollar on this.
