It’s surely no accident that “The Life of Dad” should appear this close to Father’s Day. It is a paper iteration of The Life of Dad website and podcast. There have been over 300 episodes of “The Life of Dad Show,” and the authors note that “our online community of fathers has grown to over two million strong and has become a home for dads to connect, comment, laugh, and share their thoughts on parenting.”
The authors refer to the myriad pieces in this volume as “essays.” Those pieces aren’t so much essays as they are short commentaries, really, all carefully structured the same way. There’s a quick introduction, then one question for and an answer from one of “Today’s Leaders, Icons and Legendary Dads.” All this is followed by a brief takeaway summing up the celebrity advice given.
