    In a very funny and endearing collection of personal essays, award-winning and nationally-published writer Joel Schwartzberg shares stories of his ever-evolving, self-defining dadhood. The 40-Year-Old Version is a great read or listen for any parent, particularly dads trying to sharpen their role and looking for insight through hysterical, heartbreaking, and heroic example.

    In our world, it often seems that "Single Mom" holds the ultimate rank. Sadly, dads (especially divorced dads) are too often disregarded. He is "just the dad." Everyone "knows" that mothers are the "real" parents. Joel offers us a beautiful look into one father's journey to finding and embracing his status as a parent, and what it means to be a father.Although my family's situation is vastly different than his, I still found myself smiling often as I heard conversations that seemed to have been pulled from my life. There are dynamics in divorce and remarriage that are nearly universal. I know a lot of women who talk about them a lot. To hear these same stories told from a man's point of view was delightful.My only complaint is that I sense there is a lot more where this came from, and I was left wanting more of Joel's funny, insightful, and touching stories of what it is to be a dad.
