The New York Times bestseller: “Hilarious. No mushy tribute to the joys of fatherhood, Lewis’ book addresses the good, the bad, and the merely baffling about having kids.”—Boston Globe

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.

Departure from his usual topic of how individuals, groups and finance intersect with society, my curiosity was piqued because Michael Lewis is such a gifted writer. He has a knack for humour and creating larger contexts and the trials and tribulations of fatherhood give him lots of material.
Short and sweet with lots of juicy little vignette's about his 3 children and his observations along the way.
The book is a good inspiration for new father's or would be father's to make a point of writing or capturing your child's early years lest you forget!
