Bill Cosby's humorous take on parenting is an enjoyable and easy read that will bring a laught to parents and teach us to laugh at ourselves. Dry, witty humor, spot on in terms of children's behaviors.
I did like this book. I liked it for a couple of reasons. First of all, it was a really quick read. With the "Afterword", it is only 178 pages long. Second of all, I didn't know how Bill Cosby would be as an author, but let me tell you, he is funny in this book as well!!!
He is the father of 5 children. He spoke about several aspects of being a father. Plus, he did it all with good humor.
This is the perfect gift for the new Dad to let him know what he is in for.
Fatherhood...is pretending that the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope.....knowing you are in trouble when the child says, "No problem."....thinking that the height of fashion is matching socks....not being the boss of the house because you've seen the boss's job and you don't want it.
From Bill Cosby, America's favorite TV dad, comes the ideal gift for Father's Day...
