Most fathers today strive to be both successful in their careers and loving, involved dads. It sometimes seems like an impossible tug-of-war. But it doesn't have to be. The Working Dad's Survival Guide helps dads understand they are not alone and offers a series of concrete time and life management strategies that enable them to succeed in their careers while also being the present, involved fathers they always wanted to be. Through personal stories and interviews with dozens of working dads as well as actionable advice and useful self-assessment exercises, Scott Behson will help you feel more confident in succeeding in both parts of your life.
I love this book, because it actually explains everything that really is going on my life.
The guides that are available outside of this book are invaluable in better managing your work with your life as a new father. The book does a great job of showing how to implement them, but could certainly dig a lot deeper.
I loved this book, it challenged me and gave me several new ideas for approaching balance between work & family life. I'd recommend to all fathers who want to be the best provider they can be for their families, but still be as involved as they can with their children. I'm also going to try and organize my own "beer-fire"!
It was good to hear someone give thought to this stuff. Made me feel more confident and normal.
