Book review: "Fatherhood" by Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby's warm and gentle humor is a pleasure to read, and his observations on the travails of parenting in "Fatherhood" will ring true to almost any parent.

He highlights kids who don't listen, kids who don't study, kids who won't move out and he admits to having a soft heart for all of them. While there are few hard laughs in this book, there are many chuckles and knowing smiles.

By contrast, the introduction and afterword by Alvin F. Poussaint are overlong, stuffy and completely unnecessary. Skip them.
