When editor Ben George became a father and went looking for advice on Amazon, the search engine replied to his query, 'Fatherhood' by asking him 'Did you mean, 'motherhood'?'. With each day of his daughter's life, he was learning how unprepared he was, and so he set about contacting some of his favourite writers in search of the unvarnished info on fatherhood. "The Book of Dads" offers readers unrivaled insights into the complexity of fatherhood as it's experienced now. It is a literary reader for the contemporary dad, hip and on point, but also substantive, with an eye toward becoming a classic that readers return to again and again over the years. And it covers the spectrum of fatherhood experiences.
