Lessons on the Art of Fathering from the Game of Baseball

Jack Petrash



I am actually not a baseball fan (give me a good basketball game any time!), but I love this book. I’m also not a father – I’m a mother – but I still love this book. This is the first book on parenting that is such an engaging read that I felt like I had found a long-lost friend – one who spent the years of our separation the same way I did: raising children. Jack Petrash has managed to give the most realistic account I have thus far read of the process, the glory, and the gritty REALITY of parenting – and, he had me rolling in the aisles with laughter all the way through.

Whether you’re a father or a mother, even if you don’t like baseball, I suspect you’ll love this book as much as I did. It is a great book for new parents or for old, tired parents. It uplifts, informs, entertains and energizes – what more could any parent want? Plus, you can learn one heck of a lot about baseball, too!

You give 100 percent in the first half of the game, and if that isn’t enough in the second half you give what’s left.
