Reviews - What do customers think about 1001 Things it Means to Be a Dad: (Some Assembly Required)?
Just sick Nov 21, 2009
In less than one minute, I stumbled upon no less than three religious quotes, despite there being no indication whatsoever on the front or back covers that this was anything but a generic "book for dads".
Number 400, in a nutshell, stated that "Dads should teach their kids that God is behind the science." Yawn.
I don't remember number 1000, though it was along the same lines.
Number 679 was the sickest thing I can imagine reading in an inspirational book for dads. "Dads should tell their kids that, if they do not have God, they will forever be alone in the world.
Lies and false advertising. I can't imagine how many people bought this book under the assumption that it was something other than what it is.

Who knew you could actually reach dads with serious advice about parenting, by being so funny? Mr. Harrison covers just about everything imaginable in very short, humorous sentences that even the most impatient, 'non-reader' personality can enjoy. Perfect for Father's Day, or just about any day. For New fathers, Experienced fathers, Young or Not-so-young, there is something in this book to learn or 'remember when you learned' and usually laugh about... Thanks, Mr. Harrison, for adding much-needed humor to the serious job of being a Dad!
