The Zero Boss -- "Parenting is an exercise in shedding excess layers of ego - rolls of psychological fat that you would never burn off if your kids didn't make you run this gauntlet. Little by little, the successful parent learns to live a life interrupted, abandoning activities during the day when duty calls and saving the bulk of one's personal pursuits until after everyone else has dropped unconscious. After years of active duty, you build up occult powers of endurance and patience that seem supernatural to the uninitiated. Parenting as a spiritual sadhana: that's what this blog is all about."

"The Zero Boss: A Young Father's Tale - From Insanity to Enlightenment is a personal narrative about my adventures accumulating six children before my 30th birthday - and the spiritual lessons I've learned from raising them."
