Every once in a while you stumble upon a book that is completely wonderful. You find yourself getting lost in the story, giggling and saying things like “Oh my God” and “awwww” out loud.
Man Made by Joel Stein is definitely one of these books. Joel, a man who recently found out that he is going to be a father finds himself both over joyed and completely freaked out. In an attempt to become the best father possible, he goes on a quest to figure out what it reeeaally means to be a man. The journey is insightful, painfully awkward and hilarious. Joel’s one-liner commentary of the world around him is laugh out loud funny and the love he has for his wife and son permeates the entire story making this book impressively poignant, funny and heart-warmingly sweet.
