About the Book
Taking the best of his columns, A Dad’s Point-of-View (published in over 100 newspapers and websites), about life as a single divorced dad now remarried, Sallan brings it all together in the one parenting and relationship book that readers will totally connect to and catch themselves saying, “I’m right there with you, Bruce!” In fact, many will be turning to it again and again as they face the challenges of raising today’s youths.
And for the thousands of Sallan fans, it truly delivers. Not only is it receiving very positive feedback, but it is has received numerous stellar reviews including one from Stan Lee, Marvel Comics, creator of Spiderman, The Fantastic Four and X-men. Lee states, “Bruce’s fascinating look at the ups and downs of parenting reminds me of Marvel Comics. There too, we choose not to hide the blemishes of life, but to discuss them in an entertaining and helpful manner. Must reading for all parents and would-be parents.”
Sallan’s goal with the book is simple. “It’s my hope that families of all faiths and circumstances will enjoy it and benefit from it as they face the many challenges of parenting. Through my own stories and experiences, I share from the heart about raising my sons, surviving after a divorce, adding a new step-parent to the mix, and how to have more joy in the small things, such as family traditions.”
A Dad’s Point-of-View: We ARE Half the Equation is published by JuneDavid Publishing and sells for $19.95 at leading bookstores including Amazon or through the author’s website, http://www.BruceSallan.com.
My Take on the Book
As a dad blogger I have followed Bruce for some time. I even interviewed him as my 36th father in my Dads in the Limelight Series. So when I heard that Bruce came out with the book that he had been working on for some time, I knew that I had to check it out to see if it followed the quality writing, advice and humor that I have come to expect and appreciate about Bruce’s writing, it did!
I have to say that I truly enjoyed this book! There was so much great information and resources shared within its pages and as a parent I could definitely relate to much of what he was sharing. Most of the book is full of so much everyday parenting humor and information that you will not be disappointed when you learn from Bruce as you are reading along.
This book also is not just for dads, but for parents. The humor that he uses as well as information that he shares will be helpful to all who read it. I loved how the book talked to me as a reader, and it seemed to be that Bruce was sitting in the room talking to me instead of me reading his words on the page.
Overall, this was a great book, and one that when shared between moms and dads will provide for good conversation and for a clearer understanding of the roles that each play in the parenting of a child in today’s society!
