About the Author
Everything I’ve ever written has been informed by my own past mistakes, but never so much as this book. I am much like Mister Married now, but I have been too much Mister Maybe before, too many times, and too many innocents paid the price for my errors. The golden goddess you see on on the back cover has always looked at me that way, but it’s only in the past five years that I’ve come even close to deserving her devotion. You’ll have to prove the claims in this book for yourself, but my own proof is in my love for her – and hers for me.

The general thrust of the book is that the man in the marriage is in charge of making it succeed. When he stops trying, the marriage fails.
Quibble as I might that marriage isn't for me, to the vast majority of people out there marriage is an inevitability; a life goal even. Being morally serious about life and especially about marriage and your family is so important and so neglected. But that's exactly what this book is trying to address. These are things nobody talks about explicitly before marriage, and even fewer people - in my estimation - take to with the clarity of purpose, seriousness, and clear reasoning with which the author does.
While my marital future is still dubious, this is without a doubt a must read for anybody intent on marriage.
This book will likely piss off many feminists because Swann has the gall to suggest that only men can save marriages but, in the end, you'll see that he's absolutely correct. He's even more correct about the fact that men have been given a "free pass" today because women expect so little from us. Expectations are so low today because most of us suffer from Peter Pan syndrome.
If you want to run away from your marriage and family, this book is DEFINITELY not for you. If you want to hear hard, practical advice about how to take charge of your life, your marriage, and your family, and make all three work, this book should be on your nightstand. It should be ragged from re-reading, highlighted, graffiti-ed with notes in the margins, and falling apart from the spine being bent.
None of the advice is superficial, feel good crap. You'll have to be honest with yourself, decide if you really want a happy marriage, and start acting like the man you are supposed to be. The good news is this; you don't have to think about it anymore. Swann lays it out in an 80-page read which can be knocked out in an afternoon at the beach.
As a woman there are things in this book that may seem offensive on first glance, but they are very true. Men must be the ones in the relationship to set the pace, tone, and trajectory.
Who doesn't want their husband to be more of a man? A strong, happy, confident man.
Here you have the most amazing example of opening the window to an old fashioned way of looking at dads, and yet the message is so clear that it's going to knock the socks off dad, mom and the kids. No more half-way with being a dad. Get yourself engaged and on track to make being a dad, a father, a husband, ever so much more passionate and alive. Make a change in the context of your role that will leave your busting out with joy at what being a dad, what celebration Father's Day, is all about.
Get this book today....and tell every dad.
Father's Day is his latest and, as usual, made me think. Sometimes painful, as it reflected some of my own shortcomings, it is worth the investment if you are serious about becoming a better Husband, a better Father, and a better Man. The result could be that we save the West and make a better future for our generations to come.
Give yourself a gift on this Father's Day....read the book and realize that it's not too late to become the Father, Husband, and Man you want to be.
