By Kendall Smith
If you grew up without a father figure, you might worry whether you have what it takes to be a great dad. Author Kendall Smith, son of a single mother, takes you under his wing, sharing wisdom he has gathered from his own experience as a father, from observing father figures in his life, and from interviewing fathers from all walks of life. This playbook for men who, like Smith, did not have a regular and dependable father figure is packed with short lessons to answer questions new dads will face, from choosing your parenting style to what it means to really be the “man of the house” (spoiler alert: it’s not the 1950s) to managing your expectations as your child grows into a unique person. With hilarious examples and a straightforward approach, The Father Apprentice is the mentor-in-a-book every new father needs to be the dad you wished you had.
