    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."

Michael Lewis disappoints

by greebs on Nov 16, 2010

Michael Lewis is one of my favorite authors but this fails and it's somewhat predictable why. As a father, I sometimes find myself telling friends or co-workers about this adorable thing my daughter said or did - and sometimes, halfway through the story, I realize, "Hmm...this probably isn't nearly as interesting to these guys as it is to me." Well, this whole book is sort of like that, mixed with the experience of reading Lewis' diary as a new father. It's occasionally cute, often boring and shockingly hard to relate even as a relatively new father myself. This is a very short book, and if you are as big of a Michael Lewis fan as I am, you may not want to believe me so dive on in and experience it yourself - but as far as I'm concerned, it's not worth the time.
