Eight Is Enough: A Father's Memoir of Life with His Extra-Large Family

'“Tom Braden has done us a favor. . . . Here are easy-to-read and well-told anecdotes of a large and exceedingly active group, with an occasional bit of provocative philosophizing thrown in.” —Walter Cronkite   “What a delightful book! I must contradict the author—eight is not enough. I enjoyed being part of the family.” —Kirk Douglas   “Braden used his experiences with his children as object lessons in generational change. Outnumbered by his brood, he’d had to become as much of an observer as an authoritarian; and his feelings about drugs, fashion, and pre-marital sex softened as he watched his children thrive while making what Braden’s generation would’ve deemed ‘mistakes.’” —A.V. Club   “Tom Braden has had eight children and lived to tell about it. Indeed, in his new book he tells about it with grace, with wisdom and with humor. Parents will certainly cherish this book and I think that some of their children will too.” —Jean Kerr, New York Times–bestselling author of Please Don’t Eat the Daisies   “Eight Is Enough is a most diverting book, guaranteed to send fathers back to their paternal labors refreshed and edified.” —Arthur Schlesinger Jr., Pulitzer Prize–winning author of A Thousand Days  '
