Check it out

Last Christmas before Jack was born, I bought Rules For My Unborn Son 
for Brad.  From time to time, I go to Jack's room and re-read. It doesn't fail that every time
I do, I become a little emotional. Even though, I gave this book to Brad, it's really for Jack.
This book is a manual for growing up to become a good man.



RULES FOR MY UNBORN SON is a collection of traditional, humorous, and urbane fatherly advice for boys. From the sartorial (“If you are tempted to wear a cowboy hat, resist”) to the practical (“Keep a copy of your letters. It makes it easier for your biographer”) to even a couple of sure-fire hangover cures (“There is no better remedy than a dip in the ocean”), the book of rules and accompanying quotations is quite simply an instruction manual for becoming a Good Man – industrious, thoughtful, charming, and of course, well-dressed.

Two of my favorites from the book:

Spend time with your mother. She's cooler than you think.

If you are having a son or know someone that is - trust me, you want to
to own this book. I highly recommend it!

  1. The "make time for your mom on your birthday" got me a little choked up! I need to get a copy of this. :)
