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. Simultaneous.

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
