The boy ain't right Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Our hero Hank Hill has gotten where he is today by overcoming P.C. liberals, twig-boy bureaucrats, and dim-witted friends. And he's done it without whining or claiming victim status. Scout leader, Little League coach, and expert on anything you throw or mow, Hank fights for Truth, Justice, and the Texas way. So how does he explain his 12-year-old son, Bobby? The boy's first love was a plastic mannequin head, and he wants to be a proctologist or a shaman when he grows up. For any father who wishes his children were just a little more like ol' Dad, The Boy Ain't Right serves as both a guidebook and the manifesto of America's unsung lawn-mowing heroes.

Synopsis:

Dedication

"Writing a book is rarely the work of just one person. In this case, it was. But I couldn't have done this all by myself if it weren't for the invaluable support of my wife, Peggy Hill. She was always there for me as I worked late into the night, with an encouraging word ... a cup of coffee ... a re-write or two ... or simply typing the entire manuscript from the notes I scribbled on the back of a napkin or called in to our answering machine. And she did all the illustrations."

-Hank Hill
