9780985928803: It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This (The Dream Lives of Papa Madre and the AngloArabAsian Brothers)

In this rollicking memoir that reads like "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother" meets Pee-wee Herman, veteran journalist Sam Moses tells all, about raising his two sons from their birth to the ages of seven and five. The stories and incidents are unique-often hilarious and sometimes scary-but the themes and issues are universal to parenting. Light bulbs of recognition will pop, for mothers and fathers alike. There are lessons, there are confirmations, there are cautionary tales. A parent can relate. The author was flat on his back on a beach in Brazil looking at the stars, when he decided that it was time to start a family, at age 48. He says he wasn't merely ready, he was hell-bent on commitment, and this book proves it. As a globetrotting editor of a car magazine until he was fired, and then a freelance automotive journalist and free spirit, he takes his children (and the reader) along everywhere, from 170 miles per hour on the high banks of Daytona on a road-racing motorcycle, to the funky toilet-seat-always-up bathroom in their rundown trailer in an RV park on the Sea of Cortez in Baja. Even if you've never been to those places, if you've ever raised a child, this book is for you.
