About this title:
Synopsis:

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.

About the Author:
Michael Lewis, the best-selling author of Liar’s Poker, The Money Culture, The New New Thing, Moneyball, The Blind Side, Panic, Home Game, The Big Short, and Boomerang, among other works, lives in Berkeley, California, with his wife and three children.

From AudioFile:
Lewis recounts the daily happenings of parenting his three children--from household activities to school to vacations. It's not that they're extraordinary or that he's some kind of superdad. It's that they're so ordinary, so typical. Any parent can identify. Dan John Miller is well suited to the work. He varies his tone and pacing, making the narration more of a conversation than a straight reading. Miller delivers the humor naturally, without making it sound like some kind of stand-up routine. His juvenile voices sound a little cartoonish, but few narrators can carry off that bit of audio magic. In sum, Miller's reading exactly suits the content and style of the writing.
