    I knew that this book deserved 5 stars before I even read it, just because I loved the documentarty The other F word based on Jim s book As a former punk rock girl I loooved seeing how you deal with growing up yes even in your forties when you re playing in a punk rock band on the one hand but on the other hand want to raise and educate your three daughters to sometimes not fuck the authority You read the book as if listening to a good friend of yours, which makes it an easy read The honesty of [...]

  3. Kinsey

    This book is the personal narrative of a punk rock dad The genre of punk music that he grew up with was a culture of rebels, sticking it to the man and refusing to conform However, when he has children of his own he has to find a balance between being an independent individual and instilling a respect for authority in his offspring What strengthens the author s connection to the punk rock scene even further is the fact that he is the lead singer of the band Pennywise This situation also forces h [...]

  4. Jason Farley

    First chapter was great, some of the other chapters were appalling and some had some good advice and creative ideas It laid out plainly the tension between raising and loving kids and being postmodern Not exactly a must read, but not a waste of time Also, if you still have a little punk rock in your soul, it will alleviate the need to blast the dropkick murphy s or nerfherder or weezer in the garage while you work on your sermon metaphorically speaking, taking a completely hypothetical situation [...]

  5. Linda

    a good quick read it was a little scattered, but that worked with the punk rock diy attitude I read it because I saw a trailer for the documentary the other f word about punk musicians who have kids, which came about because of this book there were some funny parenting moments, and a little advice definitely made me want to see the movie to get the other dads experiencesere was some frustrating editing errors, though one point he used the word wreaked when he should have used reeked and I found [...]

    I never really got into Pennywise though after reading this I might go out and get one of their albums A mishmash of punk, parenting, relationships and observation subjects I m not planning on having kids and I m not very punk though I like a lot of the bands mentioned by the author so I picked this up purely out of curiosity Found this a good, easy to get into read though there were a few parts that seemed to repeat but there were parts that had me laughing out loud so all in all it gets the th [...]

    This is a title that I got as an advance review copy and I later ordered for the library s collection Jim Lindberg is a member of a Southern California hardcore punk band called Pennywise which I had never heard of but I still enjoyed how he made the transition from rocker to dad in the burbs Very funny and insightful although toward the end it became of a parenting book than a punk rocker s memoir This is a book that I ended up passing along to friends who are rockers and parents.

  8. Bill

    No disrespect to the author, but I found the book about as interesting as the music of his band, Pennywise, which is to say not very much at all It s not really bad or anything, but it just didn t grab me Plus, I am many things, but none of them are Punk Rock Dad Dorky Beatle esque Indie Rock Dad, maybe, but not Punk Rock Dad.

  9. Emanuel Ramos

    I appreciated the author s story, and I could relate to some of what he wrote, I couldn t get past the clumsy prose Who edited this That being said, there are some nuggets of wisdom buried in this book But is it worth reading Maybe not Unless you re a punk rock fan, then yes by all means read this book.

  10. Shannon

    I spent my early teen years listening to Pennywise, so when I was pregnant and browsing for an even slightly entertaining book on becoming a parent, I was delighted to find this book written by the lead singer of Pennywise Hilarious stories about potty training and fear of toilets and trying to keep his hardcore dignity as an aging punk rocker while raising his daughters.

  11. Sain"tJAHn

    I broke rule number one of the book universe I was turned off by the cover of this book and initially moved it to the side When I eventually got to it it turned out to be a pretty entertaining book with some of the same sentiments and experiences I had as a first time dad.

  12. Rob Clark

    Jim Lindberg is an author father, husband, and former lead singer of the punk band Pennywise In Punk Rock Dad the author discusses his struggle with being a punk rocker while yet being a responsible and attentive father in an engaging and humorous way.This book resonated with me on many levels I have just entered a new phase in my life that is similar to the one Jim has lived for some time Almost nine months ago I began dating and eventually moved in with a beautiful woman who has two small chil [...]

  13. Mark R.

    Jim Lindberg starts his book with an anecdote dealing with a parent teacher night for his kindergarten aged daughter s class The teacher asks what he does for a living, and through a couple of questions learns that he s the singer for a punk rock band, and asks, Isn t your current single called Fuck Authority This leaves Lindberg feeling somewhat embarrassed and confused, and he spends a decent chunk of the rest of the book talking about, and questioning, how one can have a punk rock anti author [...]

    Favorite quotes On our white minivan we have no less than three life size decals of Britney Spears s face stuck to the windows A friend saw me driving the wife and kids in it and said he was going to the record store to trade in all his Pennywise records I told him to get me the new Christina Aguilera while he was there because the kids were begging me for it I would have just went through the torture of unbuckling and taking off the onesie and recovered from the ungodly smell, and then cleaned [...]

  15. Glenn Rolfe

    Being a punk rock dad myself, I freaking loved this book Truth is, I tried reading it year ago when I first bought it Back then, I only had one kid I didn t care to listen to Jim s childhood issues, and when he got going about his daughters I felt like I hadn t reached most of those issues with my little one yet So I put the book down like 40 pages in Fast forward to today I now have three kids 2 daughters and an infant son Now I couldn t put the book down I was like yes yes oh my god yes Basica [...]

  16. Matt Byrde

    To me it seems that if you want to relate to this book, you need look no further than the title If you grew up in the 90 s listening to Rancid and AFI, and you currently are, or soon will be a new Dad, this book will be fun and nostalgic for you If you don t fit into both of those character types, then I think this one might be lost on you.I appreciate that Jim admits freely that he is an insecure, aging, jaded grump like everyone else, and not some forever young skate punk hero However, he does [...]

  17. Nikolas

    I chose this book because I saw it at the store and the title was very intriguing being a fan of the punk rock genre of music The book is about a man named Jim Lindberg the lead singer of the band the punk rock band Pennywise His life is the constant hardcore punk life and then his world is turned upside down when he finds out his wife is pregnant My favorite quote is For him, it becomes the song of life and the slow, constant draining of it, one that before had seemed pointless and corrupt, but [...]

  18. Shawn Fairweather

    I had a lot of fun reading this Having been a fan since Pennywise started playing out, I grew very interested in Jim s perspective on parenting once he decided to leave the band in order to be close to home to raise his girls What transpires is something that I can see myself facing when the time comes Coming to the realization that we all have to inevitably grow up to some degree and how in the hell are we going to handle it Especially those like myself who have tried to buck the system wheneve [...]

  19. Kahn

    A look at how to ratify telling the younger generation to fuck authority while instilling a respect for parental authority into three little girls, Punk Rock Dad is at once both poignantly thought provoking and laugh out loud funny.Mixing tales of life on stage with play dates and PTA meetings, Jim Lindberg captures the scarey world of being a new parent while trying to hold down a job in a punk band.The roles aren t easy, and the telling of it could have been harder, but Lindberg manages to do [...]

  20. Scott

    If you know who Jim Lindberg is you probably know him as the lead singer of Pennywise Jim is also a family man and the father of three young girls His book focuses on his role as a father vs his role as the leader of a punk band and the transition from his free living punk rock life to the whirlwind life of changing diapers and running to soccer games As someone facing impending fatherhood it was humorous, frightening and at times even touching While I really did enjoy this book and it was nice [...]

    I started reading en excerpt in the bookstore and couldn t put it down I was laughing hysterically to the point of snorting while Brandon looked at me incredulously When I had him read the section I was reading, he was almost falling out of his chair laughing too Pleasantly surprisingly well written and literate, so far, lots of laughs and astute observations of being a bit different from the norm, parenting and trying to maintain that sense of individuality while still fitting in enough with al [...]

  22. Chris C.

    It s funny, because this book couldn t have come along at a better time My wife and I are thinking of having kids but our thoughts are filled with self doubt as well as doubt in the stability of society as a whole Ok, maybe I shouldn t speak for her, but I am concerned with those at least Jim writes in an extremely conversational tone and tells his story with the humor and sarcasm expected of a punk front man It was really great to see that the rigors of childrearing are pretty universal please [...]

  23. stephanie

    the issue becomes, he writes, how do punk rockers get older and keep their edge and youthful idealism but still hold on to their dignity first off, i wish this were the book i read it was not secondly, ask ian mackaye or henry rollins just saying the first half of this book was eye rollingly terrible i feel for the guy, but come on not all other parents out there are stepford parents i know plenty of nonconformists who also have a kid the second half of the book picked up and was actually on its [...]

  24. Nora

    Good times True stuff Light enough to be called a fun read, smart enough to keep my attention past the occasionally redundant statements of punk ethos Maybe the primer on punk mentality and purpose was there for the soccer moms reading this book The intro chapter on parent night at preschool is dead on As the designated degenerate parents at our son s school, we ve fielded a lot of the same sideways looks and stupid questions Refreshing to read reflections on sharing the playground with those pe [...]

  25. Thomas

    Remember that trick in grammar school and high school that was very very very very obvious when you were trying to reach a specific word count on a paper This book suffers from a lax editor that could ve trimmed off a lot of fat The singer writer has a knack for saying the same exact thing three times in a row a lot Still a decent fun read even if it gets bogged down at the end with fortune cookie obviousness regarding being a cool good parent.

  26. Judy

    Jim Lindberg tries to reconcile telling the world to F authority while teaching his daughters to respect his It s a fun read about parenting and trying to be a good parental figure when you didn t exactly have one yourself There are some parts to give you a chuckle and others giving you good life and relationship tips It s not a big departure from other funny book written by parents though.

  27. Léna

    Je n ai pas trouv qu il regorgeait de conseils parentaux mais c est certainement le bouquin le plus dr le que j ai jamais lu Il explique surtout comment sa vie de famille se passe, quel point ses enfants le surprennent et de quelle mani re il essaie d tre le meilleur p re possible Je le recommande non seulement aux fans de punk rock mais aussi tous ceux qui veulent une lecture rapide et joyeuse Un bouquin g nial.

  28. Michael

    Laugh out loud look at a punk rocker dad with three daughters Without having kids of my own I found this book enjoyable and quick to read I m sure for many parents, or parents to be, it is nice to read someone else describe the ups and downs of parenting and realize that it s all how you handle it in the end that will determine if it is a positive or negative experience.
