This is so much more than a 'loo book' and, through the hundreds of fantastically funny and poignant quotes, celebrates and reevaluates fatherhood. But before dads get too big-headed there are also some witty and waspish comments from the people who have to live with them. Hours and hours of laughs -- and a must have for every home.

Synopsis

Fathers' Wit by Rosemarie Jarski

Fathers' Wit is a collection of the funniest things ever said about the greatest role a man ever has in life. All aspects of fatherhood are looked at: from conception to nappy changing, from family holidays to first dates, from paying for weddings to filing for bankruptcy. Pearls of paternal wit and wisdom are offered by fathers who've been there, done that, and got the sick-marked T-shirt, including many celebrated patriarchs like Sir Bob Geldof, Ozzy Osbourne and Jim Royle. But dads don't have it all their own way: the paternal view is balanced by sharp observations and humorous comments on fathers from the family members who put up with them. Fathers old and new will be amused, entertained and inspired; and if the rest of the family can prise the book out of his hands, they'll gain valuable insights into what makes him tick. It all adds up to a joyous celebration of the man who, for most of us, shapes the course of our life like no other and who we love like no other: dear old dad.
