About the Book
A new book for a new generation of fathers. How do today's fathers meet the challenges and changes they encounter when they become parents. In our modern-day career-driven world of 12-hour workdays, being a Father competes with nearly everything, and yet when it comes to what is truly lasting, satisfying, and ultimately fulfilling in life, there is nothing else so rewarding as being a dad. Dr. Bruce Linton, founder of the Fathers' Forum shares his experiences and insights from his "Men's Groups for New Dads." This personal, conversational, and inspirational book is a powerful call to action for every man to understand how he may change when he becomes a father.

My Take on the Book
This was a well-written book that will make you rethink the ways in which you parent your own children, as well as think about fatherhood in general. You can tell that the author understands some of the deep rooted concerns of many fathers, any shares with readers through an honest inquiry and insightful examination of the issues themselves. On top of the stove the book is very practical in nature in regards to helping the reader overcome some of these issues and become even better fathers in the end. the book is very motivational and inspirational and you can tell is aimed at changing some of the cultural mores that exist in our current society as they relate to men and manhood. the book also will helps you to better reflect on the own experiences that you had not only in being a father, but also in relationships that you may have with your own father. This is the type who will allow you to better understand yourself ( especially if you are father), but will also open your eyes to many insights that will help you to become a better father overall.
