The Greatness of Dads is a book of stories, insights, wisdoms, embarrassments and truths about real-life dads. To find out more about the man who is a 'son's first hero and a daughter's first love', author Kirsten Matthew interviewed thirty-one big kids, small kids - kids of all sorts - from nine countries about their dads. The line-up includes some well-known locals, such as former rugby player and entrepreneur Marc Ellis, whose dad fostered his love of sport, and actress Teuila Blakely, who shares memories of going to work every day with her devoted dad. The chapters in this book follow the trajectory of our lifetimes with our dads - from birth to adulthood. They extol the things that dads do so well, and spotlight some of the things they don't (like dressing and dancing). In poignant letters, cultural icons such as Barack Obama, Frank Sinatra and Jim Henson offer fatherly advice, while personal reflections from individuals such as John Cash, Iggy Pop and Eleanor Catton reveal the significance of parental influence. Add to that quotes from some of the most famous dads and the result is an original, inspiring, humiliation and heartbreak - found the world over.
The Greatness of Dads is the gift book for dads everywhere - whether they be expectant dads, granddads, foster dads, godfathers or dads-byproxy - and for anyone who has, and loves, their dad.
