Format: Paperback
As a father I can attest that there is no handbook for being a Dad. Usually what I have learned has been from other fatherly role models that I have encountered within my own lives. Unfortunately all too often men do not have these role models within their lives. As the author states, fatherhood is in crisis, and with so many kids growing up in fatherless homes (even when they are present) it becomes even more important to have a guide, a manual per se that can give you an idea for directions or a compass to steer by. This book is hard hitting and addresses important ideas about what fatherhood is and should be. If you are a father, I would highly recommend that you read this book.

What I liked about this book was how easy it was to apply the concepts on a daily basis. You could easily see the passion that the author has for the subject of fatherhood, but also for helping others. I was drawn in by the personal stories that he shared with the reader. As a father of two, I cannot even imagine being a father of nine children... I can see how he would have stories to share.

The book is from the heart and truly attempts to connect with the reader beyond a surface level. The book is also practical, as it provides the reader with checklists, action steps and examples that help to guide fathers into being even better dads and men.

This book makes me want to listen even more to what this man has to say and I am sure that you will also find this to be true also!

Format: Paperback
Finally - a handbook for Dads. Kids don't come with a workshop manual or installation instructions even though they are the most precious (and expensive) assets in our lives. Scott Hammond has filled that gap. He provides appropriate, applicable ways we can be great fathers.
The book is clearly a personal work drawn from Scott's family life (he and his wife have 9 kids) enhanced by his experiences as a sale professional; but this is more than a "Do what I did" or Don't do what I did" book. It's heartfelt, meaningful, and contains practical ways we can approach the challenges of fatherhood. Scott provides checklists, action steps and examples (the things guys can relate to) that help us and give us permission to be real fathers and still be "real men".
A terrific and timely book for Father's Day.

Format: Paperback
I was the single father of two boys. I virtually raised them by myself. And, all the while, I compared myself unrealistically to the "perfect father." Of course, I always fell short. Then I felt bad. Then I became disillusioned. I could not seem to find advice that was realistic, manageable, and "doable."

Every Day Dad is aimed at "real dads," the average man who wants to do right by his children, his family, his community - and for himself. It reminds us that the different parts of our lives do not take place in isolation; rather they are all interwoven and the key to being a successful father is not to do everything perfectly (an impossibility) but to continue to do things better.

Scott's stories, his advice, and his insights make that process simpler, easier, and more rewarding. In addition to reminding us of what's important, he shows us how to manage our time and our priorities to accomplish these vital objectives.

This is a book for any man who has ever been a father, who plans on becoming one, or who has had one. You will not be disappointed.

Everyday Dad: The Guide to Becoming a Better Father is an exemplary book. It is a facile and fun read, documenting the life of a fantastic father and community role model. I have had the pleasure of reading this book and of listening to Scott Hammond speak on a number of occasions. To experience him in person is one thing and his energy, enthusiasm and joy translates in written form well! I highly recommend this book, particularly as a nice Father's Day gift!
