Additional Information

Bill Geist--the beloved, award-winning, long-time special correspondent for "CBS: Sunday Morning," whose debut Little League Confidential was a New York Times bestseller in hardcover and paper--and Willie Geist, the Today Show host, popular member of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," and author of the best-selling American Freak Show--have begun an extended conversation between father and son on areas of mutual interest, agreement, and disagreement.

Told in a unique back-and-forth banter style, the hilarious father-son team will laugh together at the shared journey of their relationship. They'll riff on fatherhood, religion, music, sports, summer camp disasters, driving lessons gone horribly wrong, being on TV, and their wonderfully odd family life. Think Big Russ and Me (May 2010, 345,829 net per bookscan) meets S*** My Dad Says, with humorous observations about professional wrestling as a worldview, raising a kid with television cameras in the kitchen, and anything and everything else that comes to their witty minds.

The Geists decided to write this book so their children and grandchildren would have a record of their unusual father-son relationship. The book is remarkably funny, as well as poignant and sincere, especially in light of Bill's announcement that he's been diagnosed with Parkinson's. With its lighthearted look at the crazy things fathers and sons go through and the unique bond those experiences forge, the book is sure to be a must-have gift for Father's Day.

I purchased both the hardcover and the Kindle edition. I read the book on my Kindle but bought the hardcover mainly for quick reference to the "wit" of both Geists and the wonderful photos. When the Epilogue page showed up on my Kindle I was sad to know the book was on the last chapter. I laughed and cried all during the book. Thanks for the ride...................in the red Jeep.
Had high expectations going in, but have never laughed out loud so much while reading any book. Was literally out of breath from laughing while reading "this is not a pony ride", toward the end. Father and son are both masters of self-deprecating humor that is bound to tickle the funny bone in us all. There is more than just laughs here, though. As others have posted, you leave the book feeling like you know this loving, funny family!
This is a wonderful book very well written by two of my favorite news personalities. It's written in a conversational tone and it seems like you're having a discussion with this talented father and son. It will make you laugh, cry a little, and think about life and raising children. This has become one of my favorite books on the bookshelf.
