‘Best Dad’ – Buy The Books

1. The Kindle Book

From party bags, nativity plays and the sheer joy that’s a family changing room at the swimming pool – to teenage angst, slamming doors and boyfriends it’s best Dad doesn’t know about…

Based on nine years and 250,000 words of newspaper columns, The ‘Best Dad I Can Be’ series will hilariously chart everyday life in an ordinary family. This is the sample book – 27 of the most popular columns covering the years from 2003 to 2012 tackling the essential questions all parents have to face:

  • What do you do when your seven year old is arrested as a terrorist?
  • How do you react the first time your teenage son comes home drunk?
  • And how do you explain to a 16 year old girl who’s heavily into rock n’ roll that one day she’ll be just as heavily into growing her own vegetables?

The book is also available in France, Germany, Italy and Spain – just visit your local Amazon store and search for ‘Best Dad I Can Be.’

2. The Real Book

You can also buy a real book – one you can take to the beach and spill your sun tan lotion on.

Chronicles of a Desperate Dad  was first published in 2006. It covers the years 2003-2005, so if you buy it, you won’t need books 2 and 3 on the Kindle. It’s 285 pages long and contains 99 columns. 98 of them are funny – seven years later one of them still makes me cry.

As you’d expect, the book deals with all the essentials of being a parent: nativity plays, party bags, what to do with dead goldfish and what to do with a drunken teenager.

I’ve got about 100 copies left. When they’re gone, they’re gone and there’ll never be any more. If you’d like one, you can buy it here with Google Checkout. The book will be signed, dedicated to whoever you want it dedicating to and sent anywhere in the world. The book is priced at £9.95 in the UK, which includes the postage and packing. Depending on the conversion rate applied by Google Checkout, that will make it approximately $15.50 or €12.70. Then just get in touch and let me know the address you’d like the book sending to and any dedication you’d like.
