"From popular TV hosts and bestselling authors Bill and Willie Geist, a hilarious testament to the special nature of father-son relationships. In GOOD TALK, DAD, this talented father-son team shares stories of their funny and heartwarming relationship. Told in a unique back-and-forth banter style, this extended conversation riffs on everything from music and sports to summer camp, driving lessons, and family life. Imagine Big Russ & Me meets Sh*t My Dad Says. After Bill went public with his struggle with Parkinsons disease, the Geists decided to collaborate on this book so their children and grandchildren would have a record of their unique bond. Now that Willie is a father (and Bill a grandfather), Willie has continued Bill's child-rearing traditions in the hopes of carrying on the riotous Geistian parenting legacy. The result is delightfully entertaining, wildly funny, and poignant as well"--… (mer)

Great book! ( )

I picked this up on a whim at the Hachette warehouse sale last year. I'm not familiar with either of the Geists, but the subject matter sounded like it might be entertaining, and it's hard to pass up a brand new audiobook for $1.

But...a little less than halfway through, I bailed. I very rarely do that, but this one just wasn't holding my interest. I think I expected a more back-and-forth conversational type book based on the description, but it's written in an essay-type form, alternating between father and son. It just sounded really stilted to me and not very natural. Considering these two gentlemen have made careers out of speaking publicly on TV, I would've expected the audiobook version to be a good option for this book, but I think listening is actually what turned me off the most. I suspect reading in print might've been more appealing in this case. ( )

I loved the way this father and son duo corresponded about their lives, talking about issues they'd never talked about face-to-face. What's so charming about this book is how much fun these two men had with each other, how much love shines through, and their comedic points of view.

What a wonderful gift this book must have been to both father and son, and to the rest of the family.

The audio narration is delightful, hearing their voices and the laughter in their voices. but the book is full of amusing, sweet photos, so I recommend you acquire both (perhaps from the library, as I did). ( )

This was a fun read. Both Geists (Bill of Sunday Morning and Willie of The Today Show) are smart, articulate and very funny. They reminisce, for the most part, each with a different take on the same situation They have such a funny view of things that it makes it a genuine pleasure to read. Some serious moments but told with a bit of humor. It's apparent that they respect and really like each other. ( )

I love Bill Geist's human interest features on "CBS Sunday Morning" where he reports on quirky and sometimes totally bizarre slices of American life from the Santa Claus University to the convention of antique toaster collectors. And I also see Willie Geist almost every morning as I watch "Morning Joe" on MSNBC and read the morning papers. Yet somehow I never made the connection that they were father and son (yes I know, I'm a little slow on the uptake).

This breezy little read is their collaboration on how fathers and sons deal with one another and what makes a good family, and it is hilarious and also heartwarming. The story about Willie's summer at a camp where all the counselors were were non-violent gang member serving out their sentences as camp counselors, was only topped by Willie's surreal retelling of his road trip with his Uncle Herb to see the Rolling Stones in Atlantic City.

Along the way we hear about the family's Jeep, purchased with Bill's first book advance and living on through 15 years of adventures before going to its final junkyard resting place as well as more serious subjects like Bill's year in Vietnam in the late 1960's and his struggle to "come clean" about his Parkinson's disease.

The Geists are warm, funny and clearly love their family and this book is the perfect Father's Day present for any dad. ( )
