Recently I had the privilege of reading Treion Muller’s soon to be released book “Dad Rules: A Simple Manual for a Complex Job.” As you can see from the cover design the book is very attractive and appealing. Unlike some books, though, the content quality of “Dad Rules” exceeds the appeal and quality of the outward packaging.
From the beginning I was captivated by Treion’s writing style. His use of wit and humor to communicate profound truths (Rules as Treion calls them) inspired me to be a great dad, but further to take action, making the influence I have upon my children a positive one.
There were moments I found affirmation, “Hey, I do that!”, moments where I relived special memories with my own children, and moments when I thought, “That is a great rule, I’ll add that to my parenting.” All in all, “Dad Rules: A Simple Manual for a Complex Job” is packed with tid bits of wisdom and practical suggestions on how to be a dad that positively impacts his children.
Throughout the book we catch glimpses of Treion’s life and one thing that stands out most to me is his strong belief that the wisdom and learning we receive is not to be kept to ourselves but shared with others. ‘Dad Rules’ is the result of this belief put in action. Further he encourages us as dad’s to do the same, what we have received and learned, share with another dad who might benefit from it. Rule 81: “In rule 4 you were encouraged to ask other dads for advice, and in this rule you are encouraged to return the favor and look for opportunities to share what you have learned with other dads.”
‘Dad Rules’ is a book that I will pick up and read more than once and I am confident you will not simply enjoy reading this book but be inspired to be a great dad too. To learn more about ‘Dad Rules’ visit Treion’s website. To pre-order your copy of ‘Dad Rules’ visit Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
