One Man's Search for the Reason Nobody is Listening to Him
In the beginning, children actually listen to Dad, mainly because they don’t realize they have any other choice. Sometimes even the dog pays attention. But gradually, things get out of hand.
A DAD’S PURPOSE, from W. Bruce Cameron, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Dog’s Purpose and 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter, is an instant classic.
In this heartwarming book, Cameron comes to grips with how the chaos of children and parents and pets and homes conspire to turn a once perfectly normal life completely upside down. He quickly learns that the role of “Dad” must wear many hats — from novice yogi to Montgomery Moose stand-in, to chili contest judge and free financial advisor. Cameron balances the hilarious moments of parenthood with the profound, poignant aspects of a dad’s life. Because although there may come a day when a father is relieved to hang up his moose costume, he will always treasure the times when his child wasn’t yet embarrassed to hold his hand. These moments are fleeting, but Cameron has captured them in A DAD’S PURPOSE.
Whether you have a dad, are a dad, or might become a dad, please know that no one else is doing fatherhood perfectly either, and read this book of camaraderie and appreciation.
“Consistently funny…The book delivers a steady stream of quips and funny… readers of Dave Barry will be familiar with the exact register of Cameron’s helpless self-depreciation and readers of David Sedaris will recognize that author’s formula of ending each chapter with a funny paragraph, each paragraph with a funny sentence, and each sentence with a funny word. It’s all enjoyable, lightweight riffing that may make new dads feel a little bit less alone.” — Kirkus Reviews
