The one book you will ever need on how to be great dad. Including clear strategies on everything from being a hero to your kids to communication to discipline, this is the one book fathers will ever need. It's encouraging and affirming and to the point, with comments like: 'Men are such a necessary part of the parenting team because they believe in the three Rs: Rules, Routines, Ridiculousness.' Fathers Who Dare Win was first self-published in 2000, and now Ian Grant has updated and revised it for today's generation of fathers. Much of the original content remains highly relevant but there are new aspects for today's fathers to deal with - the internet, Facebook and Twitter; strategies for the estranged dad; the importance of a father in his daughter's life, and in his son's life; smart strategies for how to love the mother of your children; and much more. In Ian's characteristic straight-talking way he offers lots of advice, tips and strategies for being the best father you can. Ian speaks from experience as the father of three and grandfather of eleven, but he also mines the research to deliver well founded and practical advice.
