From the all-star cast who brought you The Seven Deadly Virtues comes a book with a look at the good life? or the crazy-stressful-overwhelmed life? of a father.
The Dadly Virtues is a tongue-in-cheek collection of encouragement and guidance for any stage of fatherhood, from pacifying babies to prepping for senior prom, from cutting the cord to getting the first, ?Best Grandpa? t-shirt. P.J. O'Rourke sets the stage with the chapter, ?What Do Men Get from Fatherhood? Besides What They Put In ?? and then is followed by:
?Matthew Continetti's, ?Newborn Terror: The Moment You Realize that ?Bundle of Joy' Is a Euphemism for Something Very Different.?
?Stephen F. Hayes' ?Siblings: The Best Gift You'll Ever Give Your Kids.?
?Jonah Goldberg's ?Get Your Kid a Dog: The Moral Case for Pets.?
?Tucker Carlson's ?In Praise of Adventure: How to Fill a Child's Life with Excitement and Danger (without Getting Them Killed).?
?Michael Graham's, ?Dating: Enjoy the Movie and Please Keep the Impregnation to a Minimum.?
?Christopher Caldwell's ?College: It's Not as Bad as You Think; It's Worse.?
?Andrew Ferguson's ?Emerging Adults and Empty Nesters: Just When You Had Fatherhood All Figured Out.?
?Toby Young's ?The Dark Side: Bad Parenting and the Things We Think, but Do Not Say.?
?Joseph Epstein's ?Thanks, Grandpa: Grandfatherhood and the Spirit of the Age.?
Father-to-be, two-time-dad, or granddad, each essay will make you laugh and, at the same time, reinforce your commitment to the virtuous?the dadly?life.
