Bookreview: All Pro Dad by Mark Merrill (president of Family First)

I chose to review this book through the Booksneeze program because Mark Merrill and his organization Family First have been in the news a lot recently and I figured this book would provide me with some insight about the author and his views on family outside of his appearances in various TV news shows - it proved to be an interesting read and I feel that I learned more about the Family First organization through this book than through the TV shows that mention and cover this organization in headline-type style.
The author makes it clear that this book is intended as an advice / guide book for fathers to become better at their game of being a father. The provides easy to follow, seven basic steps that every dad can follow to become a better person, husband and father. Each step is dealt with in one chapter and the author draws heavily on personal experiences and stories to exemplify what each dad can do to become a better father.
Besides the personal stories, he also includes insights from interviews with celebrities on the subject of fatherhood.  These additional insights make this book informative for everyone because the reader can learn how the author and his philosophy intersect with views of others and can form one comprehensive approach of fatherhood.
This book is a good read for every father and husband and provides an interesting book of collected insights into fatherhood.
