Book Review - Be a Better Dad Today: Ten Tools Every Father Needs

About the Book 
Be a Better Dad Today! is a book for every one of us who want to be a better Fathers for our family. Written in an encouraging, fun to read style by bestselling author Gregory W. Slayton, Be a Better Dad Today! is designed to help each of us become better Fathers, better Husbands and better Men. It is bound to be an instant classic on the subject of Fatherhood. Background for Be a Better Dad Today!: Professor Slayton has studied the art and practice of Fatherhood on six different continents over the past 25 years. He grew up in a difficult family environment even before his father abandoned his family. The last time he spoke with his father, Gregory was in the hospital and close to death. His dad cut short the conversation, promising to call back shortly. For 25 years, he never did. His father died in 2007, alone and in great pain. As Professor Slayton writes “he was the saddest man I have ever known.” This book seeks to help each of its readers to be the best Fathers they can be…and overcome whatever issues they may have inherited or grown up with.

Professor Slayton has been married to his wife Marina for 22+ years. They have four great kids, the eldest two of whom are attending Ivy League universities. As a family they have weathered many storms – as all families must. But by God’s grace and with His help, all things are possible. Like its author, Be a Better Dad Today! is a work in process.

The Ten Basic Fatherhood Tools are highlighted in Be A Better Dad Today!! Like anyone trying to do a difficult job, Dads need the right tools to get the Fatherhood job done right. Be a Better Dad Today! I devoted an entire chapter to each of the Ten Tools Check out excerpts from each of the chapters

My Take on the Book
This is a great book for any dad today. The book is inspiring and will encourage any father to become better than he already is. Whether you are a father already or you are a father to be, this is a book that will make you rethink your impressions of fatherhood and what it means altogether. I loved how practical the book was and how easily you could incorporate the book into your everyday life. The questions alone that the author asks are ones that made me take pause to reevaluate my own skills as a father and think about ways in which I can be a better father in the future and you will too. So if you are looking for a great book for yourself, or for a great gift for that special dad, this is definitely one that I would highly recommend!
