It was quietly entertaining, but not very informative on the role of fathers in an infants life, more of a glossy over view. Yes it is a club, the author speaks to friends, interviews famous men and in general he is joining a network of men with kids all ready to (over) share their stories.
In one way my faith in finding a man to share not only my life with but the role of parent, has been shot in the face, repeatedly, with this book. I found the author alright, still very much a self absorbed boy (35+) but its the other men sharing their stories. ALL of them have left me cold and wondering what is the real point of having a man who will either be constantly away from home, unfaithful, forgetful, gives up at the first hurdle, in-attentive to almost neglectful of the children... all the while worrying they are not good dads.
I commend this book for having frank dialogue about men's role as father, their feelings, panic and slowly building confidence. However, I'm not sure this book has a real purpose. No matter the gender we all have insecurities and worries. This seems more of ego stroking for the author. I'm not a fan, sorry.
Don't rely on this book for parenting advice.
