Book Review: All Pro Dad
Throughout the book, Merrill describes "the seven essentials to be a hero to your kids." His 7 M's are Makeup, Mind-set, Motive, Method, Model, Message, and Master. Each essential is connected to the two basic fundamentals: Love and Leadership.
Merrill humbly describes times he has failed in his journey as a father and husband. He doesn't claim to be a perfect dad, only a dad who learns from his mistakes. Merrill also includes advice from other notable men such as Tony Dungy, Truett Cathy, Dr. Ben Carson, and authors Stephen and Alex Kendrick.
As I read through the book, there were many things that I felt were just common sense. However, I had to remind myself that there are many men who were never shown how to be an All Pro Dad from their own fathers.
I recommend this book to any father wanting to strengthen his relationship with his children.
I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through the Booksneeze program for the purpose of an honest review.
