Book Summary:

The New York Times bestseller: “Hilarious. No mushy tribute to the joys of fatherhood, Lewis’ book addresses the good, the bad, and the merely baffling about having kids.”—Boston Globe When Michael Lewis became a father, he decided to keep a written record of what actually happened immediately after the birth of each of his three children. This book is that record. But it is also something else: maybe the funniest, most unsparing account of ordinary daily household life ever recorded, from the point of view of the man inside. The remarkable thing about this story isn’t that Lewis is so unusual. It’s that he is so typical. The only wonder is that his wife has allowed him to publish it.

Book Summary:

Here, with his remorseless eye for the truth, the bestselling author of Liar's Poker turns his sights on his own domestic world. The result is a wickedly enjoyable cautionary tale. Lewis reveals his own unique take on fatherhood, dealing with the big issues and challenges of new-found paternity: from discovering your three-year-old loves to swear to the ethics of taking your offspring gambling at the races, from the carnage of clothing and feeding to the inevitable tantrums - of both parent and child - and the gradual realization that, despite everything, he's becoming hooked. Home Game is probably the most brazenly honest and entertaining book about parenting ever written.

Book Summary:

A story with a big heart about a boy, a coach, the game of baseball, and the game of life. "There are teachers with a rare ability to enter a child's mind; it's as if their ability to get there at all gives them the right to stay forever." There was a turning point in Michael Lewis's life, in a baseball game when he was fourteen years old. The irascible and often terrifying Coach Fitz put the ball in his hand with the game on the line and managed to convey such confident trust in Lewis's ability that the boy had no choice but to live up to it. "I didn't have words for it then, but I do now: I am about to show the world, and myself, what I can do." The coach's message was not simply about winning but about self-respect, sacrifice, courage, and endurance. In some ways, and now thirty years later, Lewis still finds himself trying to measure up to what Coach Fitz expected of him.

Book Summary:

How to make speeches that seize the moment, advance your cause and lead the way. For those who aim to be leaders, mastering the power of speechmaking -the art and craft of persuasion - is more important than ever. If you want to be heard, it's not enough to have something to say: you must know how to say it. In government, business or civil society, a leader's speech sets the tone: the wrong words can destroy a company, damage a reputation, or even start a war. But the right speech can build prosperity, drive peaceful solutions and bring people together. This book meets the difficulties of modern speechmaking head-on, taking us through the process of formulating ideas, finding the best ways to express them, and delivering an accomplished address. Using examples from history, literature and her 25- year career as a speechwriter, Lucinda Holdforth writes a compelling analysis of celebratory, rallying and explanatory speeches. She reminds us that democracies rise and fall on the quality of the debates we conduct and the subsequent decisions we make. This is not only a practical manual for crafting a powerful speech, it's a cracking read. The right words can be transformative. They can stir a heart or reimagine the world. Leading Lines will help you find those words, and lead the way. PRAISE 'A book for anyone who aspires to leadership. Holdforth draws on her formidable expertise and experience working with CEOs like me to deliver this practical guide to the creation of leadership speeches.' Geoff Dixon, CEO and Managing Director of Qantas, 2001-2008 'This book is for all those who love words and the power they have to change lives. Leading Lines will be an indispensable tool for CEOs and speechwriters of every kind, it is also, quite simply, a cracking read, attractive to anyone who likes a good story' Tegan Bennett Daylight, writer, teacher, critic 'Exhilarating, illuminating, and absolutely captivating, this book made me want to rush out and give a thousand speeches!'

Book Summary:

ABOUT THE BOOK Parenthood is an experience often talked about but rarely understood by those who have not gone through it. It is an experience that can hardly be described in words. Author Michael Lewis, in Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood, never claims that he has written a definitive account of fatherhood. Contrary to the title, the book is not even really a guide to what one should expect and do when becoming a father. Rather, it is Lewis personal account of his experience of becoming a father to and raising three children. Reading much like a diary, he takes the reader on the journey that he and his wife, Tabitha Soren, went through. Through Lewis personal account, the reader gets a glimpse of what fatherhood is like. Or, more accurately, what fatherhood was like for one man. MEET THE AUTHOR Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Karen Lac has been writing since 1999. Her articles have appeared in print in The Occidental Weekly. Her writing reflects her broad interests. She writes travel, entertainment, political commentary, health, nutrition, food, education, career, and legal articles for numerous websites. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and a Bachelor of Arts in politics, both from Occidental College. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK When Lewis became a father, the only role model he had was his own father. His own father, like many men of that time whose primary responsibility was to provide economic security, wasnt really involved in raising him. The bulk of the dirty work was done by his mom. Now, fathers are expected to be involved. Lewis knows that some people thinks that he should do more to help his wife out with the kids, while there are others who think hes a saint for how much he does. Lewis makes it clear in his book that as of yet, there is no ideal model of fatherhood. If there was, then fatherhood, and parenting in general, wouldnt be so difficult and surprising. Today, fatherhood as practiced by Lewis father and that of most other fathers would be frowned upon and considered to be neglect.

Book Summary:

What makes a man? The answer used to be easy. You chopped wood, you wrestled bears, and never showed an ounce of emotion. Today, thankfully, we’ve started leaving some of those ill-fitting gender stereotypes behind. But what replaces them? How do you make sense of masculinity in a world of mixed messages? If you’re a young man growing up in this world, then you’re invited on an adventure (well, more of a ramble). We’ll explore the issues that confront us as guys - from conducting relationships and processing emotions, to handling money and behaving online. There may be footnotes. Drawing on personal stories – mainly about the sorts of mistakes you don’t have to make – and pointing at a role model who provides a much better blueprint for growing up well as a man, this is an entertaining, easy-to-read way to ask the biggest questions: who am I, and why on earth am I here? Martin Saunders is Deputy CEO of Youthscape.

Book Summary:

There are approximately 3,712 ways for a guy to look stupid during pregnancy - this book's here to help you avoid all(most) of them. And here's your first hint: Focus on what you can be doing for her rather than what's happening to her. She's pregnant. She knows that. You know that. And her 152 baby books tell her exactly what she can expect. Your job is to learn what you can do between the stick turning blue and the drive to the delivery room to make the next nine months go as smoothly as possible. That's where John Pfeiffer steps in. Like any good coach, he's been through it. He's dealt with the morning sickness and doctor visits, painting the baby's nursery and packing the overnight bag, choosing a name, hospital, and the color of the car-seat cover. All the while he remained positive and responsive - there with a "You're beautiful" when necessary - but assertive during the decision-making process (he didn't want to wind up with a kid named Percy). And now it's your turn. She might be having the baby, but you have plenty of responsibilities.
