All Pro Dad book review
All Pro Dad is a book written by Mark Merrill. It's a book written by a former football player. This is a really great book for a dad to read because it's all about the principals of marriage and being a dad. There are several chapters in the book that discuss questions commonly asked.
It read really well, and isn't confusing at all. I enjoyed reading it, althought I'm not a dad, it's still a great book. It can relate to moms as well, or women and men who are married. It's a wide variety of topics that everyone can relate to. This book helps the reader understand common principals and the fundamentals of relationships and parenthood (geared towards fatherhood).
“An NFL player becomes an All-Pro by relentlessly focusing on the fundamentals and executing them with sheer determination. The same is true to become an All Pro Dad. This book not only highlights the fundamentals of fatherhood, but also gives dads a winning game plan to do their most important job well.” –Tony Dungy, Super Bowl winning coach and NBC Sports commentator
The game-winning playbook for every father
Dads, do you want to be a hero to your kids? A go-to coach for your teens? A husband your wife knows she can count on? All Pro Dad lays out a game plan built on seven essential fathering truths and ultra-practical insights for the questions every dad needs answered at some point. Like football, fatherhood is about winning. But it’s more than just scoring points. It’s about winning the hearts and minds of your children and leaving a rich legacy of love for future generations.
With gut-level “huddle” questions to ask your children, and firsthand stories from well-recognized dads (CBS broadcaster James “JB” Brown, Chick-Fil-A founder and CEO S. Truett Cathy, Grammy Award–winning recording artist Michael W. Smith, FedEx Express COO and president, international, Michael Ducker, and more), All Pro Dad will stir you, equip you, and inspire you toward the goal of being a champion father and a hero to your kids.
