This book is a reminder that all of us have father issues - even people with the best of dads don't always win. Some of these stories will make you laugh out loud, others will leave you needing a tissue. There are great stories about what it is like to be a dad, have a dad, and even lose a dad (I wanted to hug Maggie Mason after reading her story, "What I Remember").

I cannot wait to read this book. A friend introduced me to the Dooce blog a while back, and it kind of changed me life. Knowing that others feel the same hilarious, tender, frustrating, sometimes agonizing, but grateful appreciation for parenting, family, and the world at large gives me a delightful hope. I hope this book is as funny and heartwarming as the title makes me expect it to be.
