In his hilarious debut,
Wall Street Journal writer Jason Gay embarks on a comic journey through family and fatherhood, sickness and health, heartbreak and joy.

"This book is a rule book. There have been rule books before, but this book is unlike any other rule book you have ever read. It will not make you rich in twenty-four hours, or even seventy-two hours. It will not cause you to lose eighty pounds in a week. This book has no abdominal exercises. I have been doing abdominal exercises for most of my adult life, and my abdomen looks like it’s always looked. It looks like flan. Syrupy flan. This book does not offer a crash diet or a plan for maximizing your best self. I don’t know a thing about your best self. Your best self might be sprinkling peanut M&M’s onto rest-stop pizza as we speak.

I would, however, like for it to make you laugh. Maybe think. I believe it is possible to find, at any age, a new appreciation for what you have—and what you don’t have—as well as for the people closest to you. There’s a way to experience life that does not involve a phone, a tablet, a television screen. There’s also a way to experience life that does not involve eating seafood at the airport, because you should really never eat seafood at the airport."
