After spending 10 years in the publishing industry I’ve read a lot of books. 

Some good, some not so good.

We put together a list of the top ~100 books for dads.

We have fiction, non-fiction, funny, not-funny, the whole gambit.

Have a book you want to add to the list? Please contact us and we’ll review it and possibly add it to the list.
