Although I am a mum of two kids and kind of concerned with the title of How To Be A Great Dad, I told myself maybe I should read this and then give some pointers to my hubby (hehehe).
You know what caught my interest to review this book? It's the sentence "Do good and forget about it" at the end of author Carmen Elefante's email to me. I got his email in the middle of September this year and was about to be caught up really busy with reviewing the Nissan LEAF (fully electric car) for six weeks, and replied to him that if he doesn't mind waiting for up to eight weeks for my review, I'd be happy to read his book.
Now back to his "Do good and forget about it" statement. Yeah, it totally reminded me of what my dad would be like. Just do something, don't question so much, don't be calculative, just do it and make sure you finish it. No half-ar$e job. Do it and be done with it.
Back to the book. This book is not thick at all, about 128 pages in total with hardcover and glossy papers which I like. It is about six inch by eight inch in dimension. There are a total of nine chapters, touching on such matters as stepping up to fatherhood, what to do to earn respect and trust, building everlasting memories with your family and children, the importance of commitment, being involved in your family and childrens' lives, and activities you can do with your kids.
