DADuary Book Review – All Pro Dad by @MarkMerrill #DADuary2013 #dadchat

About the Book 

“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.

My Take on the Book 

As a father I am always looking for books that can provide me with a better understanding of what it takes to be a top notch dad. This book brings together great ideas for any dad that gives any reader food for thought on how you can become that father you always wanted to be. I loved the author’s use of the 7 M’s (Makeup, Mindset, Motive, Method, Model, and Message) as motivation for meeting that goals that he set before his reader. The seven points (or goals) were easy to comprehend and to remember and you can easily see these seven as a mantra that you can put into action soon after reading the book if you so choose. The book also did a great job at intertwining scripture into the book to show the reader that the God is in the works as he works to mold you into a top notch dad as well. This was a great book that I highly recommend to any current father or dad to be!
