As we near the end of the 1990's, it becomes increasingly clear that women are not the only ones faced with the challenges of balancing work and family.

Working Fathers is the first hands-on guide with a proven and effective game plan to help fathers as well as mothers, employees as well as managers, succeed in managing the competing demands of home and work. Based on extensive research conducted by The Fatherhood Project at the Families and Work Institute and on James Levine's DaddyStress/Daddy Success seminar for corporations, this book shows how work and family are not separate spheres for men, how getting it right at home actually contributes to productivity on the job, how father friendliness benefits working mothers, and how forward-looking companies are making their workplace father friendly for competitive advantage.

Working Fathers is filled with practical strategies for enhancing quality of both work and family life. These include strategies to stay connected to your child whether you're at home, at work, or traveling; make quality time for you and your spouse; and connect with teachers, group leaders, coaches, and other important people in your family's life to help your kids succeed. It is the first guide to show both individuals and organizations how to create the father-friendly workplace.

Corporate America is at last awakening to the need for balance between work and family as one of the major challenges of the twenty-first century. Working Fathers will play a major role in achieving that balance for individuals and business organizations alike.
