Product Description

"Help! I'm Turning Into My Dad!" is just what men need to face the world as middle-age looms over the horizon. Those DIY jobs really can wait until the weather gets better; the garden is a fine place to spend a summer Sunday afternoon; footballers are paid too much and there's no point watching that rubbish until they start winning again; does it sound familiar? Let's face it: you are turning into your Dad! You can fight it only in the same way that King Canute confronted the tide or Don Quixote tilted at windmills, bravely but in futility. This book assists you to make the transition from wide-eyed dreamer to wise old counsel. Illustrated with 50 wryly-observed cartoons and broken down into ten chapters, the carpet slippers brigade will find that "Help I'm Turning Into My Dad!" is required reading. After all, who told you about the book in the first place? Your old dad, of course!

About the Author

Chas Newkey-Burden is approaching that age where policemen always look so young, a night in front of the television has more appeal than getting all hot and sweaty in a noisy nightclub and things were better when he was growing up. Yes, Chas is the perfect author for this title. He has written on a number of different subjects, including Great Email Disasters and The Reduced History of Britain. He also wrote chapters for both the bestselling Crap Towns titles and Loaded's Greatest Living Englishman, and he writes for The Times, The Mail on Sunday, Men's Health, Loaded, Private Eye and The Big Issue. Forthcoming books include Not In My Name: A Compendium Of Modern Hypocrisy, co-written with Julie Burchill. Mike Mosedale is a cartoonist and illustrator."
