A Dad's Purpose. Well, the title may seem familiar -- W. Bruce Cameron is the author of the No. 1 best-seller A Dog's Purpose, after all, but this books harkens back to Cameron's early works – 8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter being the most famous. 8 Simple Rules was based on Cameron's popular newspaper humor column, read by millions. He gave up his column to fully pursue his career as a best-selling novelist. I can't say that I'm unhappy with that decision, because his books – A Dog's Purpose, A Dog's Journey, The Dogs of Christmas, his Repo series, Emory's Gift, A Dog's Way Home and The Dog Master – are favorites. But – as his column proved on a weekly basis – Cameron has a knack for short and funny essays. The title suggests that the columns will be about fatherhood and many of them are, but it veers into other columns about siblings, his parents and, from time to time, the everyday funny things in life. And for those who are fans of Cameron's dog-themed books, there are more than a few canine-inspired pieces. In A Dad's Purpose, I laughed uproariously at a number of the columns – "My Time As Montgomery Moose," "Writers of the Purple Page" and "Attack of the Chicken Eaters," among others. But, be prepared, you may get sentimental here, too. The column about remembering the last time he held his son's hand and the long search for a missing bunny for his daughter might just get him one of those World's Best Dad coffee mugs. Cameron consistently delights, and A Dad's Purpose is another great addition to my growing Cameron collection on my book shelf.

He does it again and again and again!! A book for Dad's, about Dad's and kids...but as a Mom, I fully can relate to everything in this funny funny book of compilations! I LOVE compilation books, I can read for 5 minutes or the whole thing at one time. Mr. Cameron, once again, does not disappoint in this book. A must have for all. Well done, Mr. Cameron!!

Mr. Cameron has done it AGAIN, yet another amazing book. Like his other books, you do not want to get to the last page because you don't want the story to end. The only bad thing about his books, once you start you can't put them down, so not much else gets accomplished! A Dad's Purpose has several LOL moments that I don't want to share because I don't want to spoil them for you. You won't be disappointed!
