Reviews

"Gives voice to egalitarian parenting and caregiving by men in a truly radical fashion, with its contributors challenging traditional norms of what it means to be a father and subverting paradigms, while making you laugh in the process. With its thoughtful and engaging stories on topics like birth, stepfathering, gender, politics, pop culture, and the challenges of kids growing older, this collection of essays and interviews is a compelling addition to books on fatherhood." --Jennifer Silverman, coeditor, "My Baby Rides the Short Bus"
"I say we put the editors of "Rad Dad" in charge of the patriarchy!" --Ayun Halliday, author, "The Big Rumpus: A Mother's Tale from the Trenches"
"With a diverse, smart, and political collection of contributors, "Rad Dad" will be an instant classic among the new generation of parents whose parenting intersects with their politics. There's no way you can put this book down without feeling both inspired and entertained by the bold honesty and fierce love heard in these voices." --Jessica Mills, author, "My Mother Wears Combat Boots"
"A book about all the shapes and sizes that dads come in, united by the simple narrative thread of man and his children. Read the book and love your kids. It's that simple." --Tom Matlack, cofounder, "The Good Men Project"
"The key theme of the book is that we all need a community of support to realize a vision of parenting which actually manifests that other, better world we've all been working toward for so long." --www.LeftTurn.org (November 2011)
""Rad Dad"'s contributors are a politically engaged, profeminist, anticonsumerist bunch, but the truth is, even if they weren't, this would still be a pretty radical book. Even in 2011, nearly 20 years after the debut of the like-minded "Hip Mama" zine, for men to talk seriously and introspectively about parenting is a pretty revolutionary act." --"Bitch Magazine" (December 2011)
"The book is a gem and well-worth picking up. The editors take us on a journey through the various stages of a child's development and the different way radical fathers raise their children." --www.RedDirtReport.com
"One of the most important voices on the planet--at once parental, political, feminist, humble, and full of heart. In "Rad Dad," none of our assumptions about parenting, gender, or the way things 'have to be' in the world go unexplored." --Ariel Gore, author, "The Hip Mama Survival Guide"
