Here, with his remorseless eye for the truth, the bestselling author of Liar's Poker turns his sights on his own domestic world. The result is a wickedly enjoyable cautionary tale. Lewis reveals his own unique take on fatherhood, dealing with the big issues and challenges of new-found paternity: from discovering your three-year-old loves to swear to the ethics of taking your offspring gambling at the races, from the carnage of clothing and feeding to the inevitable tantrums - of both parent and child - and the gradual realization that, despite everything, he's becoming hooked. Home Game is probably the most brazenly honest and entertaining book about parenting ever written.

'If you remembered what new parenthood was actually like you wouldn't go around lying to people about how wonderful it is, and you certainly wouldn't ever do it twice.' Michael Lewis thought he'd seen it all. He'd worked in the city. He knew how to deal with the worst excesses of human behaviour. He had cojones. Right? Wrong. He was about to become a father . . . 'I know for a fact that my children are insane. Or, at any rate, I know that if an adult behaved as my children do, he would be institutionalized. Is it possible that they are contagious?' Here Lewis reveals his own unique take on new-found paternity: from discovering your three-year-old loves to swear to the ethics of taking your offspring gambling at the races, from toilet training to the inevitable tantrums - of both parent and child - and the gradual realization that, despite everything, he's becoming hooked (although to something more expensive than a Class A drug habit). 'Small children are ungrateful; to do one a favour is, from a business point of view, about as shrewd as making a subprime mortgage loan.' Home Game is probably the most brazenly honest and wickedly funny book about parenting ever written. 'Much effort, none of it mine, has gone into preparing for this moment . . . '

Bill Cosby¿s hilarious look at the lighter side of fatherhood . . . the book that every father will love! Alvin F. Poussaint, M.D., notes in his Introduction: ¿Bill Cosby¿s triumph in this book is to remind us through laughter that models for successful American fatherhood have been changing dramatically over the past several decades. He has sometimes been as dumbfounded as other contemporary dads: `Many men have wondered: Just what is a father¿s role today?¿ Then he rightly commiserates that the new American father has more responsibilities than ever. Bill recognizes that, though we are closer today to a consensus on the healthy ingredients in a balanced fathering role, many uncertainties remain.¿
