I can't tell if the book is actually tongue-in-cheek philosophy, or if it's just regular comedy and you're being sarcastic.
(Wait, is "sarcastic" the right word there? Ahh, I can't even tell anymore.)

It's basically a comedy book. Never fear. It's a funny book, though.

I'll take "I have no idea what any of this is about" for $100, Alex.

Hot Pockets. It's about Hot Pockets.

It's always about Hot Pockets.

Yeah, too bad that's all most people know him for, because he's funny as hell. Gaffigan's self-effacing style is like having some creamy soothing ice cream after a spicy burrito of Bill Hicks.

I am not a parent and I never want to be a parent. And yet I still find his humor very funny. He seem very genuine and honest, something I very much appreciate. He is also a religious person -- something he's revealed on the Nerdist podcast. But he's not preachy. Just honest and, well, real. (I am an atheist.)
He is a fantastic story teller about the mundane crap that is life, and I LOVE his delivery.
ETA: I used the word "very" a lot ... and I am gonna keep it.

Seriously. I always found his religious humor to be really funny. I love his food stuff, but when he sneaks in more subversive bits between jokes about food and napping, it's the best.

The tone of this review reminds me of when NPR reviews pop music with a strenuous roll of the eyeballs. If you hate it so much, why cover it?
