Any father worth his weight in diapers is sure to recognize something of himself in this collection of stories, delivered in performer Oliver Wyman's pleasant baritone. From the delivery room to the college dorm and beyond, there's plenty of wit, wisdom, and charm in these fictional, but clearly inspired-by-real-life, tales. Unlike the newer breed of foul-mouthed parenting humor books, the jokes in Dad Rules stay on the gentle side, and the stories sometimes turn poignant. A great listen for new dads or dads-to-be who need a mood-lifter and eye-opener.
