A story of raging egos, brutal power struggles and fraught decision making, from the bestselling author of Liar's Poker, Michael Lewis.

Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood is probably the most brazenly honest and wickedly funny book about parenting ever written.

Michael Lewis thought he'd seen it all. He'd worked in the city. He knew how to deal with the worst excesses of human behaviour. He had cojones. Right?

Wrong. He was about to become a father: 'If you remembered what new parenthood was actually like you wouldn't go around lying to people about how wonderful it is, and you certainly wouldn't ever do it twice.'

Here Lewis reveals his own unique take on new-found paternity: from discovering your three-year-old loves swearing to the ethics of taking your offspring gambling at the races, from toilet-training to the inevitable tantrums - of both parent and child - and the gradual realization that, despite everything, he's becoming hooked: 'I know for a fact that my children are insane. Or, at any rate, I know that if an adult behaved as my children do, he would be institutionalized. Is it possible that they are contagious?'

'Lewis is the finest storyteller of our generation' Malcolm Gladwell
