Glad to Be Dad: A Call to Fatherhood by Tim Myers

An excellent, ‘SWEET’ piece . . . powerful thoughts —Susan DeMaggio, Editor of Detroit’s Metro Parent

Men from all walks of life will discover a realistic and inspiring guide to excelling in their role as "dad" in the new book Glad to Be Dad: A Call to Fatherhood (Familius, May 2013). Written by stay-at-home-dad Tim J. Myers, Glad to Be Dad shares the author's personal account of the challenges and rewards of committed parent involvement – all while staying focused on nourishing his marriage and learning the ins and outs of running a household.

Written for both new and veteran dads, Glad to Be Dad captures the profound and unexpected joys that come from being a committed father. According to Myers, “It’s so much more than just surviving the parenting phase, it’s about embracing the learning process and appreciating what fathering a child can do inside you to make you a better person. I could never have imagined all I have gained from going the extra mile for my family.”

“An excellent, ‘SWEET’ piece . . . powerful thoughts . . . ” —Susan DeMaggio, Editor of Detroit’s Metro Parent

“I read [it] with pleasure” —David Remnick, Editor in Chief, The New Yorker

Glad to Be Dad helps ordinary men face the challenges of fatherhood with a mindset that sets them up for success in the most extraordinary chapter of their lives. It's the book that makes men want to be better, do better, and become the dad every child needs and the husband every wife wants.
