Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Adrian Kulp first learned that he was about to become a father, he was essentially a teenage boy trapped in the body of a thirty-two-year-old high-powered executive. He did what his wife asked him to do: grow up. He packed away his Phillies baseball memorabilia, hid his GI Joes, and converted their guest bedroom from his private man cave into a nursery. Goodbye sticky beer cozy. Hello Diaper Genie.

Based on his mercilessly funny and brutally honest blog, this is the hilarious story of one man's journey from bringing home the bacon to frying it—along with cleaning the crib, playing dress-up with his daughter, and discovering the existence of sidewalk stroller-rage. From numbing booze-free co-ed baby showers to navigating the Farmer's Market with a baby (and loaded diaper) strapped to his chest, to locking himself out of a childproofed toilet, this often-sweaty and exhaused SAHD (stay-at-home dad) gets down and dirty about surviving life as a new parent—dad or alive.

Synopsis:

The bestseller: "Hilarious. No mushy tribute to the joys of fatherhood, Lewis' book addresses the good, the bad, and the merely baffling about having kids."--

Synopsis:

A book that explores the difference between the idea of fatherhood and a man"s actual experience of it.

Synopsis:

Brief, clever and frank—a good gift for Father’s Day.Funny, frank, and engaging. It’s refreshing to hear a dad describe so vividly the uglier aspects of the job.His failings amuse . . . and he captures serious moments with a warmth that shows he’s a pretty good dad after all.

Synopsis:

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.
