The greatness of dads is a book of stories, inspirations, insights, wisdoms, embarrassments and truths about dads all over the globe. A modern miscellany of anecdotes, quotes, interviews, poems, letters and portraits, The Greatness of Dads is for, and about, the men who become fathers to children. Founded on original interviews with big kids, small kids-kids of all sorts- in 50 countries around the world talk about their dads and their answers provide rich, quirky and intelligent cultural insights into the man who is "a son's first hero and a daughter's first love." Add to that quotes about some of the best-known dads, song lyrics, artworks and images of dads throughout the decades, literary celebrations of, and pop-culture references to, father figures, and the result is an original, inspiring, colourful and unforgettable book that gathers together the universal threads of fatherhood-love, discipline, responsibility, fun, embarrassment and heartbreak-that can be found the world over. The greatness of dads is the ultimate gift book for dads everywhere- whether they be expectant dads, granddads, foster dads, godfathers, dads-by-proxy-anyone who is, has or is about to be, a dad.
