9780141033716: Dad Rules: How My Children Taught Me To Be a Good Parent

'She says: "Darling let's have children". I know this is a historic moment. I must respond like a man. So I ignore her . . .'

Sunday Times columnist Andrew Clover would like to share with you everything he's learned - the hard way - about childcare. Starting at the beginning, by asking why men are so terrified of breeding, he examines every worry a parent is likely to face: How can I make them sleep? How do I choose a good school? Will I ever have sex again? Why should I paint my face like a tiger? Wise and candid, this is the most truthful parenting guide of all time. It's also the funniest and most inspiring read any dad - or mum - could ever hope to read.

Review:

I love, love, LOVED this book . . . you will laugh out loud even if you don't have children of your own . . . gives traditional "parenting" books the finger . . . an outrageous and irreverent adventure ( News of the World )

Engaging, endlessly warm and frequently hilarious dispatches from the parental frontline ( Observer )

A hilarious and heart-warming insight into the way men think ( OK! )

A must for new dads ( Glamour )

A fine, witty and unexpectedly moving memoir about fatherhood ( Metro )

He's the Hunter S. Thompson of parenting. In other words, he gets it about right (Rachel Johnson )

Erudite, beautifully observed, and really rather touching. Just buy the book ( Scotsman )

About the Author:

Andrew Clover used to read books about Russian people who discover, after a long, long, long, long time, that life is bad. He now reads books about sheep who like hiding behind bushes. These books are much better. You can lift the flap and find a sheep. With the other books, you can't lift a flap and find a Russian. He does the 'Dad Rules' column at the back of the Sunday Times Style magazine. He is a comedian, writer and trophy husband. He lives with his wife, his three daughters and a female dog. Yes, that's a lot of women. In his house, he never rules.
