Overview

Help! I'm Turning Into My Dad! is just what men need to face the world as middle-age looms over the horizon. Those DIY jobs really can wait until the weather gets better; the garden is a fine place to spend a summer Sunday afternoon; footballers are paid too much and there's no point watching that rubbish until they start winning again; does it sound familiar? Let's face it: you are turning into your Dad! You can fight it only in the same way that King Canute confronted the tide or Don Quixote tilted at windmills, bravely but in futility. This book assists you to make the transition from wide-eyed dreamer to wise old counsel. Illustrated with 50 wryly-observed cartoons and broken down into ten chapters, the carpet slippers brigade will find that Help! I'm Turning Into My Dad! is required reading. After all, who told you about the book in the first place? Your old dad, of course!
