Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through BookLook Bloggers [Harpercollins Publishers] book review bloggers program.

In The Good Dad, the author, Jim Daly gives examples from his childhood on his different father figures and from his adult life as a father himself. The examples give views from a child’s point of view and a father’s view. Both negative and positive aspects of being a father are evaluated and discussed. The consequences of a father’s actions or lack of actions is also examined. Biblical references are also used in showing the characteristics of a father according to God and His Word.
The Good Dad is primarily meant for men, considering that, I found it just as valuable for me as woman. It helped me to understand my husband and the inner workings of men in general. In addition to understanding my husband, it helped me to understand my role as wife and parent. This was a very valuable and insightful read. I highly recommend The Good Dad to all!
