Overview

Tales from the Dad Side: Misadventures in Fatherhood by Steven Doocy, Steve Doocy

Dear Prospective Audiobook Buyers,!

Publishing types tell me if you're reading this it means you're looking for a reason to buy this audiobook.

What you're holding in your hands is a very funny and sometimes remarkably poignant look at fathers from the dad's side. Which is why it's called Tales from the Dad Side.

It's filled with stories of what it's been like as a dad and a son, from a child's first day of kindergarten, the awkward sex talk, right up to the day the always practical dad tries to pay for college with bonus miles. As children get older, the lessons of the father get harder. The truth is, fatherhood is like Wikipedia, some parts based in fact, others just made up along the way. And while bookstores are filled with tales of mothers, their children, and families, there are so few from the dad's side. Now as a public service, I'm doing my part to right this wrong.

Mr. Brady has nothing on Steve Doocy! I think he may just be the best father on earth after my Dad and Hubby of course. This book is a fabulous family must read. It is touching and yet humorous. I love how he has a humorous spin on life as as Dad. We are raising two kids of our own right now and it is wonderful to finally read things from fathers point of few. The best part of the book is that it is so real! I am happy to finally read a book from the Dads Side.

Want to change your mood. Buy Steve's book "Tales from the Dad Side". Bought it saturday at LSU. Really helped me get out of the dumps. I laugh so hard I was crying and that was just on the foreword and the 1st chapter. After the game instead of a beer to drain my sorrows I just picked up the book to get a good laugh. You will find yourself laughing out loud. Giving the book to my son. But I am going to get another one for myself for anytime I need a quick pick me up.

I did it to myself again - I bought a book authored by Steve Doocy and chose an evironment inappropriate for bursts of laughter when I cracked it open for the first time.

It was during the 2nd half of the last game of the World Series, while sitting on the couch with my husband suffering from a cold. We're Tampa bay residents and Rays fans; the picture is now complete.

Knowing Steve Doocy's entertainment factor from his first book, I read "Tales from the Dad Side" as a non-Dad. Don't let the title fool you: Steve's Doocy's book applies to practically every family member you know - including yourself!

The fits of laughter started with Steve's choice of activities following the birth of his son Peter (God bless you, Mrs. Doocy!) and continued beyond his experience at the spa/salon with his two daughters. The humorous and heart-felt recounts take the reader all over the world: from Steve's hometown, to a volcano in Hawaii, to Ireland and many stops along the way.

Sidenote, after reading this book, you will definitely take on a different view of parmesan cheese and the Blarney stone!

For me, Steve's book comes at a time when we need as much laughter and positive family experiences as possible in our lives. I quickly turned to Steve's book while our Rays lost the world series, the market continued to tank and the Presidential election kept us up for several nights leading to and including election night.

This book shows us the 'behind the scenes' Steve Doocy we watch every morning on Fox & Friends. If nothing else, we now know the greatness behind Steve's success (in addition to his hard work and humor): his family!

This is a must read - once you start, you will find yourself soaking in pages at a fast pace while reflecting on the quirks and laughs supplied by your own family.

Thank you Steve and THANK YOU Doocy family!

Steve is a great story teller and just an average dad. He's a man that loves and defends his family, even to his own embarassment! (How many dads will go to the salon with his girls?)

The most touching stories of his book were about his father. Calling his own dad a legend and honoring him with a trip were stories that brought tears to my eyes.

This book was a fun, easy enjoyable read. Any dad will love the stories and will probably nod in agreement at the stories Steve tells.

I read Steve Doocy's new book "Tales From The Dad Side" & just loved it. I couldn't put it down & hated when I finished it. It was very entertaining, funny & inspirational. I highly recommend it & have told others about it. I will be buying it for other family members for Christmas gifts. All dads, especially with children still at home, should read this book.

Watching Steve on the morning show Fox and Friends I learned about this fatherhood book. As positive books about fathers are rare as Acorn organizers at a Country Club, I was excited about this book's potential.

I was not disappointed. As a father of five that have now flown the coop, I could certainly relate to most of the tales. Steve wrote this in a very humorous and easy to read flow. I finished it in two readings and have now passed it to a friend of mine.

If you enjoy good, clean fun along with that rare positive view of fatherhood, I would recommend this book. If you prefer the dark side and think that all dads are deeply flawed, I "highly" recommend this book.

I hope you found this review helpful.

Don't let this one pass you by!!

My husband bought it to read actual tales from a father's point of view. Instead he got a wannabe comedy routine.
