Rad Dad: Dispatches from the Frontiers of Fatherhood
Edited by Tomas Moniz and Jeremy Adam Smith, 193 pgs.

By Steve Hart
Monday, January 23 2012


Iím a father of four kids. The youngest is nine and the oldest is twenty-one. None of them are mine, biologically. I became the father of the youngest three children when the youngest was three years old. I found fatherhood overwhelming at first. None of the kids came with an instruction manual and I was scared that I would pass on some of the less-desirable traits that my father passed on to me. In other words, I didnít want to be an asshole.

The coolest aspect of reading Rad Dad is knowing that Iím not the only one who wants to raise children in a safe environment and continue to retain our ďradness.ĒRad Dad is a collection of accounts from a variety of fathers from all spectrums of life. Every chapter is a good read, even if I couldnít relate exactly to every situation. Most importantly, Rad Dad is written by a group of fathers who also donít want to be assholes.

Iíve kept Rad Dad with me during the long Thanksgiving weekend, pulling it out when I had a chance. It was fun to read while the kids played in the ocean, screaming at each other, while throwing handfuls of sand. I felt connected to something bigger, like a secret society. If youíre a father, or a father-to-be, treat yourself to a great book. ĖSteve Hart (PM Press, PO Box 23912, Oakland, CA 94623)
