really liked it

I hate to ever use the phrase "must-read" for anything, as tastes in books often wind up being a subjective thing, leaving no such room really for a "must" anything. However, I will break that personal rule in this case, and go ahead and declare Michael Lewis's "Home Game" a must-read, though with a caveat: it's a must-read for any one who became a Dad in the last ten years.

Bonus #1: it's less than 200 pages, a breezy read, and Lewis is a brilliant writer (I mean, I read a book of his about a high school football player playing left tackle in the South - "Blind Side" - and couldn't put it down, so of course I'm going to want to hear him take on something I actually know firsthand, like fatherhood).

Bonus #2: His wife, really, is TABITHA SOREN. Remember her? I had a huge crush on her MTV News self back in my junior high years. It was odd and wonderful to try and picture her in the situations Lewis describes.
