This is certainly a book about the domestic Baker family.
Rich in anecdotes about pets, family foibles and endless disbelief as to why Danny was sporadically paid so much. Clearly Danny wants to come across as a down to earth, family man with a wonderful sense of the ridiculous and an impressive way with words.

He succeeds in this endeavour with ease. Mostly, the anecdotes are more amusing for the way they are told, than the punchlines themselves.
The fact that the writer is a talented storyteller is beyond doubt. Where I felt the book fell down somewhat, is that the narrative is very disjointed.
It jumps around all over the place, as may be his way. He did say he is better at talking up a storm, rather than listening. The latter he said he would prefer to do once retired.
Despite refreshing childlike exuberance and optimism, this inability to consider the needs of the reader means the storyline must be assembled by the readers themselves. In my opinion, this would have been a better book if it mixed up the notion of being a funny bloke, with what Danny is really good at and what he is interested in.
For instance, some depth and discussion about being in radio, his knowledge of music, what he reads and why and football. I feel we are short changed the serious and hugely talented side of Danny, in lieu of his indulging in endless anecdotes for a laugh.
I wanted to get to know a bit more about that side of him to be honest. Items in search results.
