Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

The short tales in “It Takes Balls” are written of actual events from the author’s life. Josh Wolf has an amazing and talented way of telling the stories. After telling each story he makes profound remarks. The author’s love for his children shines through the humor in his stories. While these tales are from Wolf’s perspective they could very well be written from most single parents' viewpoints. The tales have a common thread of the author’s viewpoint on dating and child-rearing. Apparently the author once coached his son’s baseball team. After reading this book Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches will never look the same. One of my favorites concerned his teenage daughter, the internet and a first kiss. Males in most species have one dominant male as head of the tribe. I laughed out loud at the 'Wrestling with the Future' story; Josh’s place as head of the household was challenged by his son.

Josh Wolf is a stand up comedienne; he is a regular on the Chelsea Lately Show. I love this book! It gives readers a new perspective into Josh’s personality. While I found myself laughing out loud at many of the stories I also found myself admiring him as a single parent. His deep love for his children shines through his words. It is also obvious that he puts his children first. I highly recommend “It Takes Balls.”
