Marvelous, true, sad, funny--and NOT JUST FOR GUYS!

I wasn't sure what to expect when a friend recommended this book to me. I'm not a son, and I've never really understood the relationships between fathers and sons. This book helped me glean some insight into my own husband's tussles with his father--and gave me hope that someday they, too, will forge a more meaningful relationship. Besides that, it made me laugh out loud. I recommend this very highly, both for men and for the women who love them.

What a Fantastic Story!!

I LOVED this book! It's a wonderful depiction of the relationship between two very different people who so happen to be father and son. I admire the author for his very candid, humorous and whimsical portrayal of how important it is not to lose sight of what matters What a great book!

I laughed, I cried, then I laughed again

This book took me by surprise because a female reader, I wasn't expecting to react so personally to a story of a father and son. Written by the son who attempts to build a relationship with his father by renovating a house with him, this book has real depth. It was terrifically funny, and at the same time, very moving. I actually got to the last page and wanted to start all over, but I waited a week before I read it again. This is really a superior entry in the father/son memoir genre, and would make a terrific Father's Day gift.


An irresistable story with insight into the relationships of fathers and sons. I particularly liked the depth of insight not only into the generational differences but the differnces in class that sometimes occur. The writer has a wonderful sense of humor that makes this one of those books that cannot be put down.

Great Fathers Day Gift Idea

This book is a terrific father and son story filled with great insight into what makes fathers and sons tick. It's a great read, one that will make you hurry home from work to read some more.
