Summary

Read by Jack, Michael and Hilary Whitehall, this audiobook includes exclusive material not available in the book, plus a hilarious blooper reel at the end.

One part Lonely Planet, one part tell-all family memoir, this is the definitive and hilarious guide on how to survive your family holiday, by Jack Whitehall, with a little bit of help from Michael and Hilary Whitehall.

No one family has more experience of travelling together than the Whitehalls. Indeed they've been allowing us a window to their escapades for the past five years in the hit Netflix show Travels with My Father, and in this hilarious book, they have now decided to pool their advice for fellow travellers. To lay out the pitfalls of family holidays. The dos and don'ts, the highs and lows. In doing so, they are sharing some of their best anecdotes. Their most extreme experiences and their most valuable advice. It is part memoir of family life, part travel guide, and full-on laugh-out-loud funny.

Whatever your version of holiday preparation, the truth is always this: if it is with one's own family, no amount of sunshine, wine or holiday spirit will stop your worst character traits coming to the surface. You have just volunteered to spend a week in close proximity with the people who know you best and who will never ever let you forget a f--- up. No one survives unscathed. Things are always going to end in tears; you can only hope they're of laughter.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great fun!

My son took me, to see the Whitehills in Birmingham as my Christmas present. it was a great show, and I bought their book. Unfortunately I never seemed to get the time to read it, so I decided to buy it on audible, so I could cook clean and do various jobs at the same time. Anyway, I thought it was a bit slow at first, but as it went on it certainly improved, it was great fun and I was sorry when it finished. I've now bought Him and Me.

Hysterical!

Fantastic memoirs from the whacky Whitehalls, Jack, Hilary and Michael, each as funny and charismatic as the other. I did not want this book to end, a wonderful romp through their life as they look back with fondness and love. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

Hilarious!

I am a huge fan of all things Whitehall. I bought the hardcopy of this book when it was released but as a very busy English teacher I never have time to read! When I finished the last episode of their podcast I decided that I still needed their voices in my life. Listening to this audiobook has been uplifting and hilarious!

Superb comedy

This book has many stand out moments. The Chernobyl holiday incident has to be one of the laugh out loud moments. Would thoroughly recommend!
