Publisher Description

From the all-star cast who brought you The Seven Deadly Virtues comes a book with a look at the good life… or the crazy-stressful-overwhelmed life… of a father.

The Dadly Virtues is a tongue-in-cheek collection of encouragement and guidance for any stage of fatherhood, from pacifying babies to prepping for senior prom, from cutting the cord to getting the first, “Best Grandpa” t-shirt. P.J. O’Rourke sets the stage with the chapter, “What Do Men Get from Fatherhood? Besides What They Put In …” and then is followed by:

•Matthew Continetti’s, “Newborn Terror: The Moment You Realize that ‘Bundle of Joy’ Is a Euphemism for Something Very Different.”

•Stephen F. Hayes’ “Siblings: The Best Gift You’ll Ever Give Your Kids.”

•Jonah Goldberg’s “Get Your Kid a Dog: The Moral Case for Pets.”

•Tucker Carlson’s “In Praise of Adventure: How to Fill a Child’s Life with Excitement and Danger (without Getting Them Killed).”

•Michael Graham’s, “Dating: Enjoy the Movie and Please Keep the Impregnation to a Minimum.”

•Christopher Caldwell’s “College: It’s Not as Bad as You Think; It’s Worse.”

•Andrew Ferguson’s “Emerging Adults and Empty Nesters: Just When You Had Fatherhood All Figured Out.”

•Toby Young’s “The Dark Side: Bad Parenting and the Things We Think, but Do Not Say.”

•Joseph Epstein’s “Thanks, Grandpa: Grandfatherhood and the Spirit of the Age.”

•And more.

Father-to-be, two-time-dad, or granddad, each essay will make you laugh and, at the same time, reinforce your commitment to the virtuous—the dadly—life.
