Overview

Just before his first child was born, Steve Delsohn was told by an acquaintance, "You will be happier than you've ever been in your life." Three children later, Delsohn has come to appreciate just how true those words were. Delsohn's book, 500 Great Things About Being a Dad, captures his lighthearted look at the joy, humor, headaches, and complexities that embody being a dad. This creative collection highlights 500 rewarding fatherhood moments with which dads young and old will identify. Some are subtle and simple; others are humorous and humbling: Hearing your sweet little daughter say her first word. Of course, that first word is "no." Getting called "daddy" all day. Seeing your daughter make her first contact in T-ball . . . and watching her run to third base. Overhearing your child's friend call you "a cool dad." You now have a valid excuse to stock up on Snickers and Pringles.The wit within 500 Great Things About Being a Dad makes it an ideal Father's Day or new-dad gift.
