Relax and have a laugh

Review
In these difficult times it is nice to just sit back and laugh while reading. Which happened a lot while reading his takes on life vol. 1. I also read this within two days and I’m not even a native English speaker myself. His stories are extremely funny and somewhat relatable. It read this during online classes and was asked remotely what was so funny. I would most definitely recommend this book to anyone who just wants to relax and have a laugh.

His second non-fiction book which he fully expects to be his breakthrough in to the literary big time. If you are sighing at this, then imagine the grinding reality of being Nikki Holland, his wife.

A book to make you laugh, smile, think and make you realise that it is not just you. You are not alone. An unintentional self-help book but that actually does help and does so without the aching worthiness.

Thirty-one essays or Takes. A daily read for even the longest month of the year and most likely, as readers sit in the smallest room of their house.

Featuring some of Dominic’s favourite blogs over the years but most takes written specifically for this book.

Dominic meanwhile, remains defiant and as delusional as ever.

Takes is available as a paperback from online retailers for £10.

But in keeping with Dom’s plans (hopes) of Takes being a gift book, only hardbacks are available via his website and priced at £15.

On the purchase page of this website is a form you can complete whereby Dominic can dedicate the book for your recipient, add your message and then sign off by adding your name and his.

An example…

To Melissa… to celebrate your Birthday/Christmas, here is a book to make you feel good. A present from your friend (insert, YOUR NAME) and from me (Dominic’s SIGNATURE)

A unique gift for someone you are fond of. That rare gift that might just be kept because it makes the recipient smile and reminds them of their friend (you) who sent it to them.

Or you can purchase Takes for yourself of course – and thank you – which Dominic can sign and dedicate as you wish.

I have never read a book this fast

I inhaled Takes on life in a single day, it was that amazing! Reading the book felt like hearing someone telling you their life stories in person to make you laugh and comfort you. I enjoy reading the blog every Sunday and this just felt like a special extra long version. I will definitely recommend it to others…

Well worth my wife’s money!

I have just finished this book and wanted to say how much I enjoyed reading it, especially as it was a Christmas present, and as we all know…. anything that is free is always better!
My only disappointment is that Volume 2 has been lost and is not forthcoming….have you tried looking for it down the sofa crack??
Anyway, this is a great book. Very entertaining and easy to read, on or off the toilet!

Perfect little bits with lots of laughing out loud!

Just finished Takes and loved it! So often these days I find myself tied up in reading lists that are far to dramatic, this was charming and funny and as a parent of boys had me laughing out loud. I have read some of Mr. Holland’s work in the past and I highly recommend it. This makes for a perfect gift especially while it’s still hard to get out for live comedy.

“A unique kind of escape”

I took my time when reading Takes on Life because it offered a unique kind of escape for me that no other book had before. It felt just as if I was hearing all these stories from Dom in person or over the phone as anecdotes. I’ll come back to it when I miss that feeling. Which I think won’t take long…

“Wow… I haven’t laughed that hard at a book in a long time!”

Takes on Life Vol.1 is designed to be read here and there when you get 5 minutes but I couldn’t put the book down and finished it within a couple hours. I highly recommend this book full of relatable and hilarious stories and scenarios. I look forward to reading the next!

” Read Takes on Life in one sitting”

I’ve received my books only yesterday and read Takes on Life in one sitting, or one “take” to continue the analogy (not to worry I was not experiencing any digestive distress) and enjoyed it very much. It’s brilliantly funny! I read your blog every Sunday and today’s made me laugh out loud, I’ve had a similar experience with my mum with the unfortunate conclusion of me having to explain what a butt plug was. I’ve just finished Chapter 5 of The Fruit Bowl and I’m a blubbering mess so taking a minute to breath and write this review, very excited to see where the story will lead next, I will of course dutifully report back once finished and looking at my social calendar at the moment should be sooner rather than later. Thank you for making me laugh in these troubled times.

” It made me laugh out loud”

I finished Takes On Life Vol. 1 and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Although there are 31 ‘takes’ for each day of the month I couldn’t put the book down. It made me laugh out loud on several occasions and I greatly enjoyed regaling anyone in my vicinity about an amusing anecdote from the current ‘take’ that I was reading. Sincerely hoping Dominic will do a part two, until then I am off to read another of his books!

“Ranging from funny to thought provoking to heart warming”

Takes on Life is a great book for both avid  readers or those who wish they had more time to read. It’s a collection of 31 short essays, ranging from funny to thought provoking to heart warming, and everything in between. It was nice to have an entire month worth an essays. Highly recommended!
