A #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Things My Son Needs to Know about the World collects personal dispatches from the front lines of one of the most daunting experiences in a man’s life: fatherhood. As he conveys his profound awe at all the “firsts” that fill him with wonder and catch him completely unprepared, Fredrik Backman doesn’t shy away from revealing his own false steps and fatherly flaws, tackling issues from masculinity and mid-life crises to practical jokes and poop. Alternating between humorous side notes and longer essays offering his son advice as he grows up and ventures out into the world, Backman relays the big and small lessons in life.
