'She takes my hand. 'Andrew', she says, 'let's have children'. I know this is a historic moment. I must respond like a man. So I ignore her...' This wise, intimate, and hilarious book is based on Andrew Clover's much-loved "Sunday Times" columns. He tells stories about how he's coped with all the big parenting issues: sibling rivalry, choosing a school, winning an argument about where you're spending Christmas. He also wrestles with all the big questions: Why do I have no friends anymore? Am I turning into my dad? Will we ever have sex again? He describes the journey he made from reluctant father, to being the happiest man in North London, as he learns from his daughters that, if you want to have fun, you better start playing.

About Andrew Clover

Andrew Clover used to read books about Russian people who discover, after a long, long, long, long time, that life is bad. He now reads books about sheep who like hiding behind bushes. These books are much better. You can lift the flap and find a sheep. With the other books, you can't lift a flap and find a Russian. He does the Dad Rules column at the back of the Sunday Times Style magazine. He is a comedian, writer, and trophy husband. He lives with his wife, his three daughters, and a female dog. Yes, that's a lot of women. In his house, he never rules.
