Written with an engaging mix of humor and brutal honesty, this memoir covers Ben Robertson’s transition from a successful journalist to a stay-at-home dad raising two sons during a five-year period. In his new role, Ben is pushed to the depths of tiredness, frustration, and despair: moments shared equally with the heights of great joy and energy. Offering a unique understanding of the price many parents pay when they stay at home to look after the children, this account also provides insight into the deeper emotional territory of the effects of children on relationships and the changing role of men in families. As it explores sporadic feelings of loneliness and confusion, this heartwarming story tackles child-rearing issues from a man’s perspective, warts and all.
