Publisher's Summary

This is the story of my journey into parenthood, from being a 24-year-old man-child with no idea of what being a dad involved to where I find myself today: the single male representative in a household of five women, or, in other words, outnumbered. Our house is now known as 'the place where silence came to die'. It's also where you'll find carpets that are made up of 50 percent glitter and where there are more pink stuffed animals than at a colour-blind taxidermy specialist's. But I wouldn't change a thing. These people are my life.

Real-life parenting through the eyes of a modern-day dad by Simon Hooper, aka Instagram's Father of Daughters.

From uninitiated parents-to-be to those who know the ropes in families large or small, everyone will find something to relate to in Simon's hilarious and chaotic tales of his own home life. His observations of being a father have delighted his hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram: before now dads are often the forgotten ones who carry the luggage, open stiff jars, take photos on holiday, fix broken bikes, go back to work, do the night feeds and make a mean beans on toast with melted cheese without so much as a pat on the back. All too often dads shrink into the background. But not in this audiobook. 

Forever Outnumbered is an incredibly funny yet emotionally heartfelt ode to modern family life.

splendid tales of dadhood.

I have followed FOD on Instagram for a while now. I was thrilled when he finished his book. Hearing him read his book was icing on the cake. I think every new or existing dad should read this as it really isn't a "how to" book as much as a "I know what you are going through" book. It was top notch.

Hilarious and endearing

Witty, funny and sincere, it's exactly what you'd expect from Simon Hooper, the expert in the art of making you giggle while looking through your Instagram feed. While you'll definitively relate if you are a parent yourself, It's a certified fun read even if you don't.

Awful / not my cup of tea

Trying so hard to be drole, and failing so badly. This project/author's natural habitat is social media rather than literature, in my opinion.

Loved this book

I never write reviews...but had to with this book. This book is very honest in a humerist way. I know it is written from a father's point of view but as me being a mother can relate with so much with what Simon Hooper wrote about.
Really this book is about real family life; through good, bad, funny and "I can't believe this just happened" moments but as parents we won't have it any other way.
If you have kids, you can relate. If your thinking about have kids, it might make you think twice.

Hilariously Honest

This had me snorting with laughter. It’s witty, relatable and thoroughly enjoyable to listen to. Lots of universal parenting experiences delivered with a good dose of irreverent humour and honesty. Bloody Brilliant!
