“Right from the beginning of this book, I found myself circling things and highlighting like mad, and saying to my wife: ‘hey! listen to this!’…. An excellent resource for any man who is truly interested in doing a real man's job: Being an involved father to his children.” —Parent Blogger's Network
“This is a great book that is relevant. Honestly, it is not just for Dads, but awesome for Fathers. A book that really does show the practical ways to interact, become involved and learn more about what is going on with your child.” —Fresh Brewed Blog
“I enjoyed the whole tone of the book which didn't, like many Mommy-focused books, use fear or guilt. I particularly enjoyed the wit of Brott's writing style.” —Delighted Blogger
“Not only does this book talk about the special relationships between a father and his kids, it also gives us mommies some great information as well. You will find a wealth of information written in a way that will keep your interest." —Island Review
"This, thankfully, is not another one of those goofy, dumbed-down books (think sports metaphors and caveman references) that make such amusing--but unhelpful--gifts for dads. In fact, this is as informative as any traditional parenting book out there (including those aimed at the moms), and in some ways even better. —Newsday
“Armin Brott, who brought us his insightful fathering series, continues to encourage men and their families with wisdom and wit in Father for Life.” —Parenting WithSuccess.com
“If you haven't read Father for Life, you are missing something. Brott does a sensational job describing the journey of a father. It's funny, informative, and additional stress relief...” —Ken Swarner, Ph.D., author of Whose Kids Are These Anyway?
“An essential guide for every dad.” —MSN
"Strikingly clear and easy to navigate... Armin’s effortless and honest conversational style of writing takes the reader through a large amount of incredibly valuable information with smooth sailing." —Blogger
"I bought this book a few years ago and find myself going back and reading it every 6 months or so. Inspires me to try and be a better dad." —Daddio, blogger
"Too often, those who do the most for us are supported the least. Military fathers certainly fall into this category. Brott's wonderfully informative book is not only a much needed salute to the importance of these unique dads, but it is also a field manual for their most important front of all—the home front." —Roland C. Warren, President, National Fatherhood Initiative
"As an Army brat I know firsthand that its not only our military men and women who serve the country—their spouses and children serve proudly as well. This wonderful book is a great resource with useful checklists and advice that covers every stage of childhood. It will help ease what are difficult journeys." —Linda Powell, daughter of General Colin Powell, US Army Ret., former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
I first purchased this book to use as a basis for my work with children of military parents. The book's content was insightful, well organized, and thorough. I felt the book was so helpful, I purchased several copies and sent them to my son, who is a military officer to present to his men." —LaVonne, blogger
"Fantastic resource! We give a copy to each deploying Marine--and another to his family. It's filled with information and tips to keep those family connections strong during difficult times." —Robert, XO, USMC
"Buying this for my husband was the best investment I could ever have made in my family. It helped his stay connected to our kids while he was gone--and helped me stay connected to him. Highly recommended. —Eloise, Air Force wife
