    A reviewer

    I really didn't want an MD or PhD perspective on parenting, and when I found this book I liked it immediately. The approach is light and entertaining, but there is plenty of great information here. I am a father of two, ages 7 and 3, so I've got plenty of experience, but I still took quite a bit away from this book. Chapters are very short, which makes this book easy to read when you have just a few minutes here or there. The style is very entertaining, and does not preach, but does provide nice tips that you can put into place immediately. My wife has read several of the chapters as well, but the book is really speaking to us dads. I especially enjoyed the information about educational financial planning, which typically would not seem like interesting reading. I'm rating this book 5 stars because it conveys a great deal of information in a very entertaining manner, and would be a good first choice for any dad. 'Good Dad Bad Dad' would actually be a great gift idea for new dads.

    Great Book For Dads!

    I read this on the recommendation from another first time dad - I found it full of useful information from starting college funds to just playing and enjoying your kids. Written with great humor, it is highly amusing and just a fun informative book
