Publisher's description :

"Phillip Toledano became a father in July 2009. He fell in love with his daughter about a year and a half later, when he realised she was the most bewitching human being he'd ever seen. Initially though things were different. The Reluctant Father follows Phillip's journey at the beginning of fatherhood. From dismay and confusion, to the blinding light of unalloyed love.

It's a surprisingly frank, funny and moving account, and he hopes his daughter won’t hold it against him when she’s grown up."
