Rated 5.00/5 based on 18 reviews
Men realize, not one aspect of the Red Storm is a laughing matter-period! For some reason, females find guys aimlessly wandering those feminine-hygiene aisles funny. They simply do not understand the pain that we men go through, as detailed in this true and comical story, when forced into those situations. . . . until now!

About Mark Elswick

Mark Elswick has been a teacher, tutor, sportswriter, college professor, and author. Despite overcoming a life-threatening auto accident in 1992, perseverance and dedication kept him in the writing game. The title of “author” didn’t come until late-2011 when Modern History Press (MHP) published his first book, “Padman,” a collection of 13 shorts stories. Afterward, he ventured onto the independent scene. That two-year chapter of his writing career also saw months of podcast hosting and public speaking while he was self-publishing three novels and some short stories. Elswick recently returned to MHP and his first biography is currently in the works.

Okay, this was the second book I picked up from Mark Elswick. I made the mistake of reading it in bed, and I thought my husband was going to smack me. I finally had to get up and move to the living room. I have a teen girl and have sent her father to the store for these. Now when I look at him I can only laugh wondering if he felt this same way. Mark has a knack for capturing the uncomfortable and making it hilarious. One of my new favorite authors.

Review by: Sherryjane Cooke on March 10, 2011 :
As a female, I never realized the tragic thoughts and emotions of the "forced into action Padman!" I believed I had already turned my husband into a strong "Padman" until it came to our daughter. This book is so honestly hilarious and a must read for every soon to be "Padman!" I loved the spectacular humor in the book - so absolutely "laughing out loud" funny! I think it should be a gift to all newlyweds and fathers of newly born daughters. At least they would be prepared and know there is a "Padman" support group! Absolutely wonderful, Mr. Elswick! Bravo!
