Cringe at the forced poses, bad hair, and matching outfits – all prompting us to look at our own families and celebrate the fact that we’re not alone. Nothing says awkward better than an uncomfortable family photograph!

The most remarkable thing here is that people are willing to share such indignity with the world, but we're glad that they have because it's internet gold.
<i>The Guardian</i>
I wept with laughter fourteen times while reading this book and snorted aloud twice. I dare you to find a higher weep/snort ratio in any other publication.
Karen McCullah Lutz, screenwriter of <i>Legally Blonde</i> and <i>The Ugly Truth</i>
Being a test tube baby doesn't seem such a bad idea after looking at these folks. I laughed till it hurt. To paraphrase Tolstoy... every family is freaky in its own way.
David Byrne
Anything that both makes me laugh and think my family isn't so embarrassing deserves to be a book.
Joel Stein, <i>Time</i> magazine columnist
This is genius!
Graham Norton
This is the best book of embarrassing and strange photos of people who look like my family that I have ever seen.
Judd Apatow (<i>Superbad</i>, <i>Knocked Up</i>, and <i>40 Year Old Virgin</i>)
