When Michael Lewis became a father, he decided to keep a written record of what actually happened immediately after the birth of each of his three children. This book is that record. But it is also something else: maybe the funniest, most unsparing account of ordinary daily household life ever recorded, from the point of view of the man inside. The remarkable thing about this story isn’t that Lewis is so unusual. It’s that he is so typical. The only wonder is that his wife has allowed him to publish it.
Michael Lewis is the best-selling author of Liar’s Poker, Moneyball, The Blind Side, The Big Short, and The Undoing Project. He lives in Berkeley, California, with his wife and three children.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy read! Finished this book in less a day! It's short, a quick read This is actually the second book I've read by Michael Lewis. I'll be going on his 3rd book as soon as I finish STILL ALICE so I guess it's official....I love his writing! This isn't a parenting how to book or anything like that, it's just his experience as a father and it was HILARIOUS! I have every intention of reading this again soon!

Editorial Reviews

“Brief, clever and frank—a good gift for Father’s Day.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Funny, frank, and engaging. It’s refreshing to hear a dad describe so vividly the uglier aspects of the job.” — Los Angeles Times

“His failings amuse . . . and he captures serious moments with a warmth that shows he’s a pretty good dad after all.” — People
