My Dad Is a Freakby Thomas Bell
This is a memoir detailing one man's serendipitous journey from bachelorhood to parenthood. After his latest girlfriend becomes his wife, and his wife becomes pregnant, Tom finds himself a first time father at nearly 50 years old. Over the years, he has shown only a passing interest in his nieces and nephews, and has never touched someone else's poo. Now, with an eight month-old baby and two toddlers, he wracks his brain for any useful cross-over skills accumulated from a half-century of single life.
"MY DAD IS A FREAK" is the conclusion that each of his children will inevitably arrive at, in their own good time, despite his best efforts.

FUNNY! Loved this book, left me wanting more. I'm sure this is only the beginning of a series of memoir's about this guy's growing family. Very original approach. Two thumbs UP!
I found this book to be hilarious and well written. This isn't the kind of "yuck yuck" humor that leaves you groaning,but rather a laugh out loud funny interspersed with very touching, insightful moments. This is a really well-written book. The author manages to avoid cliches and provide creative takes on otherwise mundane subject matters. As a creative writing teacher, I will be using this book in my class as an example of how to breathe fresh air into a well-worn genre.
