My book "Man Vs Child: One Dad's Guide to the Weirdness of Parenting" was named one of Amazon's "Best Humor Books of 2017" It's a funny dad book for parents worried about messing up their kids.

My second book is "How Not to Get Shot And Other Advice from White People," co-authored with D.L. Hughley. The New York Times Book Review calls it “A satirical but apt addition to the culture’s fraught conversation about race.”
