Dear Prospective Audiobook Buyers,!

Publishing types tell me if you're reading this it means you're looking for a reason to buy this audiobook.

What you're holding in your hands is a very funny and sometimes remarkably poignant look at fathers from the dad's side. Which is why it's called Tales from the Dad Side.

It's filled with stories of what it's been like as a dad and a son, from a child's first day of kindergarten, the awkward sex talk, right up to the day the always practical dad tries to pay for college with bonus miles. As children get older, the lessons of the father get harder. The truth is, fatherhood is like Wikipedia, some parts based in fact, others just made up along the way. And while bookstores are filled with tales of mothers, their children, and families, there are so few from the dad's side. Now as a public service, I'm doing my part to right this wrong.

    " Finally finished this book by Steve Doocy. It was great but I was expecting a little more humor. Still, it was nostalgic and heartwarming with a touch of funny. I do highly recommend it to all those that have read Steve's first book, Mr. and Mrs. Happy Handbook. "

    " If I could give it a zero stars I would. I slogged through the first couple lame chapters but was unimpressed. Doocy seems to think he's pretty funny. In reality he is lame. I wouldn't recommend this piece to anybody. "

    " If you don't know who Steve Doocy is and you don't watch Fox and Friends you probably won't like this book. But since I do both of these things I like it. It was funny and somewhat like Bill Cosby in the old days! "
