Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A whimsical, unsparing observation about the disparity between social expectation and the actual experiences of today's new fathers shares stories from the author's everyday life and his realizations about how many new dads engage in elaborate cover-ups to hide their true feelings on parenthood. Original.


Review:

"[I]n this delightful book....[Lewis] illustrates the life of a modern-day dad who is, yes, much more hands-on than his father, but who still tries to justify not spending time with his second infant after birth....It's hard to believe anything could compare to....Anne Lamott's wonderful OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS...about the first year of her son's life. But here it is. And in a dad's voice, no less."

Amy Joyce, Washington Post, 06/17/2009

Review:

"Lewis writes memorable, insightful, yet simple and brisk sentences as easily as the rest of us breathe."

Marc Tracy, New York Times Book Review, 06/28/2009

Book Description: WW Norton Co, United States, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 218 x 151 mm. Brand New Book. When he became a father, Michael Lewis found himself expected to feel things that he didn t feel, and to do things that he couldn t see the point of doing. At first this made him feel guilty, until he realized that all around him fathers were pretending to do one thing, to feel one way, when in fact they felt and did all sorts of things, then engaged in what amounted to an extended cover-up. Lewis 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.
