Author:  Rob Ballister

Title:  God Does have a Sense of Humor

Publisher:  iUniverse

Reviewer: W. H. McDonald, Jr. – AAA Founder

The Author Has a Wonderful Sense of Humor!

I started off reading “God Does have a sense Of Humor” not expecting too much more than perhaps a nice gentle little book that might make me smile on occasion. I ended up finding myself laughing out loud and almost wetting my pants! Author Rob Ballister, a Naval Academy graduate, really has a wonderful sense of what is funny even when he is battling life threatening health issues like testicle cancer. I figured if anyone could make fun of that life situation then the rest of his book would be hilariously funny in the male “Erma Bombeck” sort of way. And his book is really all about energy and humor that women will enjoy just as much.

The book is filled with dozens of short stories; some of which are based on true experiences while some are totally fictional creations of the wild imagination of the author. The key is that I could not tell which were what, when reading them—they all felt like real experiences because of the warm and skillful writing talents of Ballister. His subject matter goes from “Sex Education as Taught by Nuns” to “Christmas in Gingerbread Hell.” He deals with the simple things in life that men deal with like laundry protocols (separating colors) and blind date disasters. He handles all of these men’s issues like a profession male and makes his gender proud!

There are just so many great moments in his stories. I think most all of us guys can relate to his comments on shopping differences between men and women and the experience of buying something at “Victoria’s Secret.” This book is full of little pearls of wisdom and humorous gems. The book entertains while filling the reader’s heart with a smile. That is saying a lot in these stressful times of terrorists, wars and random street crimes; it is nice to have something that allows the readers to escape, relax, smile and maybe even laugh out loud. This is one of those special books that are a true gift for your soul!

The book would be a great gift to all the men in your life—be they fathers, brothers, husbands, significant others, or just male friends. You will find however, that women will be laughing just as hard at our male traits and behaviors when they read his stories. It is a delightful reading experience and one that is pure entertainment!
