Happy Birthday to…Who? The Definitive No Holds Barred Father’s Guide to Surviving Kids’ Birthday Parties pulls no punches. Men are miserable at children’s birthday parties, and yet they are forced to spend every precious weekend for the first 12 years of their children’s lives attending these nightmares. The kids have a great time, the women talk about…whatever it is women talk about…and the men, the fathers, are in Hell. This book is a self-help survival guide and a rant and a half. It will save many lives. Maybe.
