Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
When Hilling, an instructor of expectant fathers and the founder of several Orange County fathers' networks, held his newborn son for the first time, it felt "awkward and anticlimactic." Only a few years later he was a stay-at-home dad devoted foremost to nurturing his three sons. In the brief, impressionistic vignettes that make up this tome, Hilling describes how he learned to be a father, shares stories about his kids and offers advice for other dads who may feel nervous or confused about their roles in their children's lives.
