Books with a Beu

Jamie Beu, owner and co-author (with his wife) of CatholicFamily.info, is a "cradle Catholic", devoted husband, and father of two girls. He is a regular contributor to his parish newsletter, as well as an impassioned defender of the faith who is able to both support and challenge others as necessary -- all in an effort to build-up Christ's Kingdom on Earth. To this end, he does a lot of reading - not just of religious books (for education and research), but also of secular books, both to decompress as well as to keep a finger on the pulse of pop culture (the better to relate to others, as well as to help restore the culture).

Don't Stand too close to a Naked Man

Don't Stand Too Close to a Naked Man - Tim  Allen Got this as a Christmas present from my sister, and within the month, I lent it back to her, my mother, and my other sisters.

This was a fun little book, based on the comedy routines of Tim Allen, but also laced with some autobiographical material on the man. It's refreshing to men who will read it and think, "I do that too!", while also being readable and enlightening to women who will say, "*THAT'S* why they do that?!?"

Fun, quick read that is far superior to the follow-up I'm Not Really Here. (Better follow-up books would be Paul Reiser's Couplehood and Babyhood.)
