Dogging the flight of a Soviet Bear bomber in Libyan airspace, a U.S. navy fighter's crew are witnesses to a shocking display of military might: the unearthly power of an unheard-of weapon -- capable of untold devastation. Poised for action on the eve of Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait, America's forces have reason to believe the new superweapon is the key to a Soviet-Iraqi conspiracy. And dire consequences await un the United States strikes first -- and fast. Scientist/pilot Wyn Gallagher and his East-bloc counterpart, Elena Pasvalys, are the key players in their governments' deadly game of strategy. Now -- as the desert war erupts -- they alone may be the only hope of stopping the unleashed fury of Stingray . . . . "White starts things off with a terrific bang . . . .

“Hilarious. No mushy tribute to the joys of fatherhood, Lewis’ book addresses the good, the bad, and the merely baffling about having kids.” —Boston Globe When Michael Lewis became a father, he decided to keep a written record of what actually happened immediately after the birth of each of his three children.
This book is that record. But it is also something else: maybe the funniest, most unsparing account of ordinary daily household life ever recorded, from the point of view of the man inside. The remarkable thing about this story isn’t that Lewis is so unusual. It’s that he is so typical. The only wonder is that his wife has allowed him to publish it.
