So, like most all of us, Andrew McCarthy is an enigma wrapped in a mystery.
This book mainly deals with his issues of getting married (for a second time). The first time, he dated his wife for 20 years then they married and divorced within a few years.
Leading up to his second marriage, he traveled to far flung places as a travel writer and was gone for, what sounded like, long stretches at a time leaving his fiance to care for their daughter and his son. McCarthy doesn't come across as a very sympathetic guy but an honest one.
