The Evening Standard has named Sam Jackson one of London's 20 best bloggers, joining bloggers that post about everything from the sartorial highlights of London Fashion Week to the capital's cycling with his blog Diary of a Desperate Dad. An account of living with three under-fives, Diary of a Desperate Dad is described by the Evening Standard as "a must for veteran parents or those new to the game".
Sam's eagerly awaited book of the same name is published on the 29th of May. It brings the highs and lows of fatherhood to life with hilarious stories and insightful reflections on his own very extensive – and very hectic – experience. Arranged thematically, covering topics such as eating and food, manners and socialising, sibling rivalry, tantrums, and much more, the book is full of useful tips on family life with children up to school age, and will appeal to all fathers looking for a humorous and intelligent take on what it means to be a modern dad.
