Reviews

"Delightful, thoughtful essays on fatherhood...Parents--especially fathers--will appreciate Backman's witty and touching lessons."--Publishers Weekly
"Each chapter is filled with Backman's dry wit and brutal honesty, but behind all of the humor is real, heartfelt sentiment and poignant advice. This will make readers laugh out loud, but new fathers discovering the ups and downs of parenting will especially relate to this hilarious account of fatherhood."--Booklist
"Splendidly entertaining...readers will find all the humor, profound insight and compassion that make his fiction so irresistible. One needn't be a father--or even a parent--to treasure this collection. As with all of his previous work, Backman artfully crafts his words to touch each person both individually and universally."--Shelf Awareness
