The book is personal, honest, and, most refreshingly, entertaining. The Reluctant Father is equally worthwhile for a serious photography lover and someone who's never picked up a photobook before.

I was initially intrigued by the People write-up it received.
It's a cute book, lighthearted and funny and sweet.
