Publisher's Summary

The Dad's Edge

If you could improve one area in your fatherhood journey, what would it be? What would it be like if you mastered not one, but several aspects of your dad journey all at once?

What would life be like if you improved your level of parenting patience, had better and deeper connections with your wife and kids, improved your relationships outside the immediate family, and all while mastering a good work/life balance? How would life be different if you did this?

Hello, I'm Larry Hagner and I'm a dad. I love being a dad. And I believe that being a dad is one of the most rewarding aspects of a man's life. However, being a father can humble you like nothing else can. There really is no roadmap. With so few resources out there for dads like us, I decided to create The Dad's Edge to help you as a dad to give you easy to implement techniques you can use to be your very best and enjoy your journey of fatherhood.

The Dad's Edge will help you:

  • Master work/life balance
  • Discover three techniques to improve and maintain a great connection with your kids
  • Improve the connection & intimacy with your spouse, no matter how busy you are
  • Improve your relationships outside the immediately family
  • Create positive relationships within the family
  • Uncover three easy ways to improve your patience short term and long term
  • Discover simple ways to show up big for your kids and be present in the moment
  • Thrive (not survive) your journey of fatherhood

If you can identify with one or more of these issues, I understand first hand. Every one of us struggles with these issues on our dad journey and now I've empowered you with some great strategies and a solid roadmap in The Dad's Edge so you can relax and feel confident you are "good dad focused" and nothing will stand in your way!

Vital, Vulnerable & Very Valuable.

Here is why this book stands out:
- Short and to the point.
- Easy to follow advice.
- Describing personal hardship, being vulnerable like non other.

If you just apply one idea your parenting and marriage will greatly improve.

I also appreciate. There is no religious beliefs mentioned in this book. Everything applies no matter your religious following or not.

Cliché after cliché. No original concepts.

I appreciate the author opening up about his childhood but the rest of the book is based on concepts written about for decades. No original thoughts in this book.

Good book, but very thorough.

good book with genuine stories but needs more meat. more details to give a sense on how you can do this yourself rather than just the author.

Great book - simple to the point and actionable

Really quick read/listen with some great tips and things to put into practice. I bought the hard copy and workbook to dig in some more to this important topic. As dads we have a short window in life to make our early fatherhood days as impactful as possible.

Nothing too profound, but quick

The conversation at the end is cool and the book has some good tid-bits.

wow

What an insightive book. Not only does it give practical tips but I could really relate to the auther. It's like he was talking directly to me. There was one chapter in particular which brought me to tears, not nessesarly sadness just huge emotion.

Lacks content

Remove the bloating by way of the introduction, lifestory, extended pro life discussion and self praising podcast tacked on at the end and you’re left with About 3 mins of worthwhile content. Don’t waste your time.
