When I asked to see my husband's book list, he replied with some qualifiers:

  • Books I've read?
  • Books I've liked?
  • Books I own?
  • Books I want to read?

I answered, "All of the above!"  My husband is an avid reader, or at least he desires to be, even if he doesn't have the time to be.  Over the years he's found that continuing to read has been such an important avenue for him to continue refining his thinking.

So he complied a list, broken down into categories, of his recommended readings not limited to dads, but most beneficial to dads.  I've included affiliate links below for your convenience.  See my full disclosure policy for more details.
