One Day You'll Thank Me: Lessons from an Unexpected Fatherhood (Paperback)
"McGlynn's trek through young parenthood--missteps, brawls, avalanches, and all--is as entertaining and shrewd as any book I've read in some time." --James McManus, author of Positively Fifth Street
One Day You'll Thank Me translates the small, often hilarious moments common among parents of young children, especially dads, into "life lessons" about fatherhood. Comprised of interconnected chapters, the stories invoke a sense of humor and honesty that expand our understanding of what it means to be an American dad.
