London Sunday Times columnist Danny Wallaceshot to fame with his 2005 book Yes Man, which was turned into a movie starring Jim Carrey.
Each chapter is a short, undemanding read as Wallace takes you through a year in his life, doing perfectly innocent, ordinary things but getting into trouble every time.
It’s also the year in which he becomes a father, giving the book a heartwarming “aw, sweet!” element. He writes from a man’s point of view but red-faced moments happen to everybody and everyone should enjoy this funny, gentle, charming take on modern life.
