9780399534584: Father Knows Less: One Dad's Quest to Answer His Son's Most Baffling Questions

Kids ask the darndest questions—and the answers make for a “funny and fascinating”(Publishers Weekly) book.

Wendell Jamieson’s son, Dean, has always had a penchant for asking odd questions. “Dad, what would hurt more—getting run over by a car, or getting stung by a jellyfish?” “Dad, why do policemen like donuts?” “Dad, does Mona Lisa wear shoes?” Because Dad is a newspaperman and city editor for The New York Times, he decided to seek out the real answers to Dean’s questions from top experts—movie directors and ship captains, brain surgeons and stabbing victims, a Buddhist monk and a bra fitter, and even Yoko Ono. Their father-son journey for answers to the tough—and weird—questions of life is a sometimes surprising, often hilarious, and always fascinating celebration of the value and beauty of childlike curiosity.

About the Author:

Wendell Jamieson, city editor for The New York Times, has been a newspaperman for twenty years. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, Helene Stapinski, and their two children, three-year-old Paulina and seven-year-old Dean—who figures prominently in Father Knows Less.

From AudioFile:

NEW YORK TIMES editor Jamieson has a cute premise: What if I got experts to answer my sons questions and those of other young kids? Yoko Ono explains why the Beatles broke up, and a dominatrix tackles a question about a whip. Patrick Lawlor, who has a boyish voice to begin with, makes all the kids sound as if theyre high on Mountain Dew and Skittles. Despite that, the book disappoints. Some questions are more interesting than others, but its hard to skip around because all the tracks are exactly three minutes long. And dont plan to listen to this book with your kids. Most answers are over their heads. And who wants to explain what a dominatrix is? E.D.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
