Good But Simpistic

Perhaps I was looking for too many answers in this book. A lot of what is covered in the book is encouraging and supportive but not always detailed. If you own your own business much of this book does not apply. If like me you have 2 babies under 2 a plan is hard. How to discuss things with a spouse with very different views? How much time with your kids is enough when the pressure is on.

A good, no-nonsense guide to being a better Dad

The guides that are available outside of this book are invaluable in better managing your work with your life as a new father. The book does a great job of showing how to implement them, but could certainly dig a lot deeper.

Great tips for Dads

I loved this book, it challenged me and gave me several new ideas for approaching balance between work & family life. I'd recommend to all fathers who want to be the best provider they can be for their families, but still be as involved as they can with their children. I'm also going to try and organize my own "beer-fire"!

Nothing earth shattering but good to hear some else thinking about the same stuff

It was good to hear someone give thought to this stuff. Made me feel more confident and normal.

American jobmarket focused

Well there are som good points but it seems there is a lot of cultural differences from where the authors to where I am located. Makes it a bit hard to follow the stories and problems he refers to
