Product description

Review

"A manifesto of work and life for men that aims to be for working fathers what Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In was to working mothers: a cogent analysis of the systemic problems in work culture that make it so difficult to be a parent."--Time

"CNN reporter Levs issues an articulate call for men to fight against the laws, policies, and stigmas preventing them from fully participating in their families' lives."--Publishers Weekly

"Well-documented and easy-to-comprehend data on why men need more paid time off to be with their newborn children."--Kirkus Reviews

"A new generation of fathers is joining legions of women in the fight for equality. All In shows how men and women can unite to overcome outdated policies and gender-based stigmas holding them back and make big changes that help families, businesses, and the entire nation."--Maria Shriver, mother of four, award-winning journalist and producer, six-time bestselling author, and activist for social change and equality

"All In is an inspired, positive and original approach to the ideal of loving being a father. Josh Levs has touched me. Not literally, but philosophically--as being proud to be a man in our society whose voice can be heard if we simply employ the contents of this wonderful read."--Bob Saget, comedian, actor, director, and author of bestseller Dirty Daddy

"A must read. All In crushes outdated yet powerful stereotypes and--with fresh voices, insightful research and a passionate call to action--offers a more expansive, more hopeful and ultimately more human vision of what it means to be a good man."--Brigid Schulte, author of New York Times bestseller Overwhelmed

"Levs says it well: 'the first months of life have a huge impact on the following years.' We all benefit when families--moms and dads--get more quality time at home with their kids from the get-go. Let's go all in to fix the policies that make it so."--Gabriel Stricker, Twitter Chief Communication Officer

"Dads matter! Josh Levs passionately makes the case that society has marginalized the role of fathers, and it's time we pay attention to this unbalance. I hope All In leads to a serious national discussion."--Roland S. Martin, host and managing editor of News One Now, TV One Cable Network

"Josh Levs leaves virtually no stone unturned in cataloging the state of modern fatherhood, uncovering its game--changing impact on masculinity, relationships, media, marketing, and more. His insights and conclusions will serve as a roadmap to the coming decade of parenting and relationship research, family leave policies, and product marketing efforts."--John Pacini, cofounder of XY Media and Dad 2.0 Summit

"One of the most important books written about fatherhood. Engaging and entertaining, All In should be read by fathers, mothers, CEOs, policy makers, and anyone who cares about improving American society."--Cynthia Calvert, president of Workforce 21C

From the Back Cover

When journalist and fatherhood columnist Josh Levs was denied fair parental leave by his employer after his child was born, he fought back--and won. In the process, he became a leading advocate for modern families. In All In, he shows how father-hood today is far different than for previ-ous generations and what that means for our individual lives, families, workplaces, and society.

Growing numbers of men are becoming stay-at-home dads, working part-time, or taking on flexible schedules to spend more time with their children. Even the traditional breadwinner-dad is being trans-formed. Dads today are more emotionally and physically involved on the home front than ever before. They are "all in" and--like mothers--struggling with work-life balance and doing it all.

Levs explains that despite these un-precedented changes, the structures that shape our family lives remain rigid. Our laws, corporate policies, and gender-based expectations in the workplace are horribly outdated, preventing both women and men from living out the equality we believe in--and hurting businesses in the process, too. Women have done a great job of speak-ing out about this, Levs argues. It's time for men to join in--in a big way.

Combining Levs's personal experiences with investigative reporting and frank con-versations with fathers about everything from work life to money to sex, All In busts popular myths, lays out facts, uncovers the forces holding all of us back, and shows how we can join together to change them.
