Some invaluable advice on managing a (large) family with Mrs Brown soliciting additional advice from the children, the neighbours and anyone else who happened to be passing at the time. The book is the absolutely ideal family gift – the one book serves as a gift for the whole family with no need to go shelling out on a DVD for every last one of them.

Synopsis

Mrs Brown's Family Handbook by Brendan O'Carroll

Mrs Brown's Family Handbook, the first and only official book from Brendan O'Carroll's brilliant comic creation, is filled with useful advice and gives us a unique look into the lives of the Brown family. Millions of us have wondered how Agnes Brown does it. Keeping her end up while seven grown-up children tear about the fecking place like the eejits haven't got a home to go to. Packed with Mammy's tips for keeping a perfect family, or at least a family, as well as contributions from her children, neighbours and other hangers on, Mrs Brown's Family Handbook dispenses advice in her own inimical fecking style. You'll learn: why every mammy's secret weapon is the tea towel; the dos and don't of cleaning up Granddad; what Dermot doesn't know about farting (not much); what Winnie knows about seks (not enough); all about the Five-Sausages-A-Day Diet (hint: contains sausages); and from Maria all about pain relief in child birth (if its free, take it). The perfect gift for anyone in a large family - it's one present and cheap - or with no family at all (seeing what they're missing might cheer the miserable feckers up), Mrs Brown's Family Handbook is also ideal for anyone sick and tired of giving out bloody DVDs for Christmas. Brendan O'Carroll is an Irish writer, producer, comedian, actor, director and author. He is best known for playing Agnes Brown in Mrs Brown's Boys, which won the best sitcom BAFTA in 2012. He has written four films and nine comedy shows, including The Course (1995), The Last Wedding (1999) and last year saw the release of his DVD for the live tour Good Mourning Mrs Brown. He has also published seven novels, including The Mammy, The Scrapper and The Young Wan - a number of which have been translated into 12 languages.
