Overview
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.
And more.
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.
