In addition to my book, The Working Dad’s Survival Guide, (you can buy it here!), several other fatherhood related books are now available. While I haven’t read all of them yet, I know most of these authors and respect their work. These books would make great father’s day gifts for the dads in your life, and I recommend you start dropping hints to your spouse and kids right now.
What do best-selling authors Brigid Schulte, Armin Brott, Ron Friedman, Elizabeth Grace Saunders and Michael Kimmel have in common? They’ve all voiced their support for my forthcoming book, The Working Dad’s Survival Guide.
One of the scary but very cool things about writing a book is sending preview copies out to established authors, asking if they’d be willing to read the book and, if they like it, write a testimonial for you.
What if they couldn’t be bothered? Worse, what if they don’t like it?
I’m very happy to report that several best-selling authors have heartily endorsed my forthcoming book (which you can pre-order NOW on Amazon in advance of its June 9th release). Here’s what they had to say:
We are officially 49 days away from the launch of The Working Dad’s Survival Guide: How to Succeed at Work and at Home! The book is on the presses as we speak, and the wheels of promotion and commerce have begun to spin. I am incredibly excited!
Chapter 12 of the book is entitled, “Building Your Fatherhood Network.” In it, I discuss the importance of building and maintaining friendships with fellow dads. The fact is that too many dads feel alone, and it gets harder to make friends as we get older and busier. Regular informal fun time with fellow dads provides a needed social outlet and the opportunity to share advice and support. Great stuff, if I do say so myself. 😉
Not long ago, I was reading a draft of Chapter 12 to Amy, when she made the following comment. It was so insightful that I typed it down, and now it is included in the book. Here goes:
My first book, The Working Dad’s Survival Guide: How to Succeed at Work and at Home (Motivational Press, 2015), will launch this summer in time for Father’s day.
The book is written, has been edited and copy-edited, and is now undergoing formatting. The gears of publicity are snapping into motion. Meanwhile, I am thrilled to unveil the cover design. Also, here’s a quick excerpt from Chapter 4: The Ins and Outs of Workplace Flexibility:
Two years ago, a wise friend told me, “If you want to start writing a book in two years, start a blog now.” Following her advice has changed my life.
This blog has opened so many doors for me, and given me the opportunity to engage all of you in an important conversation about work-family issues for fathers.
