More About the Author
His first book, "Don't Make Me Stop This Car: Adventures in Fatherhood" spent weeks atop the New York Times best-seller list. In May 2002, "Al Roker's Big Bad Book of Barbecue" was published and, quickly became a summer blockbuster hit. His second cookbook, "Al Roker's Hassle Free Holiday Cookbook", became a huge success as it prepared America's budding chefs for the holidays. "Big Shoes: In Celebration of Dads and Fatherhood" honors fathers and their contributions to lives of their children. Working in fiction, Roker's trilogy of murder mysteries are exciting crime novels that revolve around a fictional TV program much like TODAY. His 2013 book, "Never Goin' Back-Winning The Weight Loss Battle For Good" was a NY Times Bestseller and told Al's personal struggles with his own weight, bariatric surgery, and diet/nutrition.
Al's latest book is "The Storm Of The Century: Tragedy, Heroism, Survival, and the Epic True Story of America's Deadliest Natural Disaster: The Great Gulf Hurricane of 1900" is available August 11 from Harper-Collins
A New York resident with his wife and three children, Al can also be seen on The Weather Channel's "Wake Up With Al," in addition to the TODAY Show.

Lots of different passages written by many different well known stars, but never too cute. Just right!
Both books make a great gift for year round giving and my dad, will get his own copy of both on his birthday, maybe even one for Father's Day. He keeps the kids for us and is like a dad to the two oldest anyway. I'm not sure if people would think of these two books as gifts for the people that they are really not marketed to, but I find it's good for husbands to read family books and grandparents too and the same with Big Shoes, moms should read it and granddads too. Just my opinion as our family adores both books. Great gifts!
