Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood is an interesting book mainly because it is the male counterpart of being a father, and we can see what happens in a man’s mind when he becomes a father for the first time, and the second, and the third. . It’s a fun and endearing new work from New York Times best-selling author Michael Lewis.
Michael Lewis can be described as typical; freaking out at the thought of being a father, but at the same time hoping to feel wonderfully different because of his baby. The funny thing about Home Game is that it all started when Michael Lewis recounted how he became the father of his three children right after they were born. It is amazing to see what goes through a man’s mind when he goes crazy for fatherhood and what he tries to do to stay sane about everything.
People often hear and read about motherhood and what a very personal, special and unique relationship looks like, but reading about fatherhood and a father’s very personal, often funny accounts of his experiences is very refreshing. We finally come to see that men are not as serene as we think, and underneath their calm and collected makeup, they are also sometimes a mess.
But what I like most about Home Game is that Michael Lewis tells it all. He is not ashamed, he does not feel intrigued by his own memories, and his wife agrees with everything he wrote. For what it’s worth, Michael Lewis’s Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood is really worth your time and laughs. It’s fun, refreshing, and most importantly, it’s true.
