But first, a word from ... Today's Sponsor
I got this text from my 12-year-old daughter:  "I luv u."  I texted back:  "I luv u 2."  We were sitting side by side on the living room sofa at the time.  I thought it was a weird exchange, but she thought it quite normal.   We analog parents of digital kids have to be on our toes, and it's stressful at times.  Comedian Greg Schwem comes to our rescue today.--TD

Greg's hilarious take on dealing with the frustrations of parenting in this age of technology made me LOL, ROFL and LMAO (my daughter helped me with those) --Ray Romano, star of "Everybody Loves Raymond"

A great fun read.  I bought this book after seeing Greg's stand-up comedy act in Chicago.  The chapter on The Joy of Sex with 20 Specialists had me laughing until I was crying.--Deborah Correnti

Here's the set-up:

What does a dad do when his daughter asks Santa for a Wii Fit and a 4G iPhone?  The answer is simple:  laugh! 

In Text Me If You're Breathing, stand-up comedian and technically challenged dad Greg Schwem accounts his mishaps and struggles with parenting in today's digital world.  Whether accompanying his daughter to the New York City Apple store, purchasing a "high-tech" swing set, "tweeting" while coaching Little League or trying to lay down cell phone rules, Schwem shows readers that technology, while complicated, can be hilarious.  

Along the way Schwem also aims his barbs at Tiger Woods, the Consumer Electronics Show, in vitro fertilization, the National Spelling Bee and the movie Avatar.  Insightful, heartfelt and always funny, Text Me If You're Breathing is proof that parenting will never come with technical support.

Reviewers Said:

I bought this book after seeing Greg's stand-up comedy in Chicago. If you grew up in the 60's you will love the nostalgic look at how simple things were in our youth.  A great, fun read.

What a delightful book, full of laughs and a sneek peak into the real life of a Comedian. Had to order 12 books to give to friends and family.

What does it take a working mom to finish reading a 212 page book...a vacation! Kudos to Greg for capturing life's perceptions in a book, and giving me a much needed laughter break. BTW - Although just coming back from vacation, it didn't stop me from using my CrackBerry every day, which made the book even funnier to me. I did glance up once in awhile to see the beautiful ocean, cliffs, and surfers in Southern California.
