More About All in by Josh Levs
 
 
 
Overview

Winner of the Nautilus Gold Award for "exceptional literary contributions." Previous winners include the Dalai Lama and Deepak Chopra.

To advance businesses, societies, and families, it's time to treat dads as equal caregivers to their children. Time for all of us, men and women, to correct our understandings of men. All In shatters myths about fathers. It shows that women can't get equal opportunities in the workplace if men can't get equal opportunities at home. It is being called a "rallying cry," the "anthem" of our time, igniting a revolution for gender equality.

"Fantastic" - New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow

"A must-read" - Washington Post's Brigid Schulte

"Fascinating" - Chicago Tribune

"One of the top books of the year" - NewsOne

"Groundbreaking... Should be mandatory reading for every CEO" - Debra Isaacs Schafer, CEO of Education Navigation

Josh Levs spent 20 years reporting for NPR and CNN, where he became a lead on-air fact checker. He then turned his attention to modern parenthood, stunning viewers with frank discussions among men. Then, Levs was denied fair parental leave to care for his preemie daughter and sick wife. He responded with legal action against CNN/Time Warner and a public campaign that landed him on the front page of the New York Times. His effort drew support from all sectors across the United States and worldwide. The company ultimately revolutionized its policy for the better -- and other numerous other corporations have followed suit.

Topics covered in All In include:

Why paternity leave is a crucial women's rights issue

Why paid family leave is a baby's human right

How Mad Men thinking still plagues businesses

How men and women can work together to update our work structures

The solutions that lift profits and expand the economy

The toll this problem is taking on men's and women's mental and physical health

The truth about parents and sex

And much more.

CNN reporter Levs issues an articulate call for men to fight against the laws, policies, and stigmas preventing them from fully participating in their families’ lives. As he points out, this is no longer a 1950s Father Knows Best world; today “men and women are sharing child-rearing and household responsibilities.” Still, Levs believes attitudes haven’t changed enough, quoting Sheryl Sandberg’s astute observation that we’ve changed the workplace, but not the home. When he first joined CNN, he was astonished to find that a generous parental leave policy applied to any kind of parent, both birth and adoptive, except for a biological father. After a year of fighting, the policy was changed. Levs takes on issues both concrete (parental leave, the tax system, paid family leave) and societal (the doofus dad stereotype, the fear of men as predators, the stigma against men taking time off work for family.) His practical solutions—like helping businesses to afford family leave by lowering taxes—are solid, but when he argues that men are ill-served by the current system, his tone becomes shrill and less convincing. Lev’s thoughtful plea for men and women to work together is more persuasive, providing a useful guide for those looking to effect change in their own workplaces and communities.
