“To say Bruce Mulkey offers a unique perspective on fatherhood, is an understatement. Sure, he had his daughters 42 years apart, however, that’s not what stands out the most to me about this author. What I appreciate about this man, this writer, is his self-awareness and ability to articulate life experiences with joy, wisdom and humor. As a parenting coach I wholeheartedly support Bruce getting his work out into the world. He and his stories are pure gold!”

Carrie Contey, Ph.D., internationally acclaimed parent coach, speaker, educator, and author of What Babies Want: Five Simple Steps to Calming and Communicating with Your Baby

“Bruce Mulkey presents readers who are interested in modern fatherhood and the changing role of masculinity with a fascinating quandary. Most people have pondered how fatherhood has changed over the last 40 years, primarily by comparing how our Baby Boomer parents raised us versus how we are raising the next generation, but Mulkey’s story is intriguingly unique, in that it shows readers how one man could experience the changing conditions of parenthood, and what impact those changes had upon his relationship with his daughters. I am not only endorsing Bruce’s story because of its unique angle, but also based on Bruce’s profound ability to weave a story.”

Josh Misner, Ph.D., Communication and leadership professor, mindfulness researcher, and author of The Dadly Way: 10 Steps to More Active Fatherhood

“Bruce Mulkey has crafted a compelling and user-friendly read that highlights the sometimes jarring juxtapositions between his two experiences of fatherhood—one in youth and the other in maturity—and which speaks to the potential we all have to awaken and grow. A high-five for both a potent memoir and an affirmative reflection of our individual and collective capabilities.”

Gregg Levoy, author of Callings: Finding and Following an Authentic Life and Vital Signs: Discovering and Sustaining Your Passion for Life

“Sometimes old dogs do learn new tricks! Bruce Mulkey got to be a father twice . . . 42 years apart! He did better on his second try because he learned something along the way, grew older, grew up, grew wiser, grew more attentive, more loving, more honest, and more capable of intimacy with his mate. Enjoy this story about a man who, in his sixties, consciously chose to be a father and became the dad of a spunky, strong-willed girl who helps keep him young at heart.”

“I’m a parent of two wonderful children. Most parents I know are always on the lookout for amazing teachers, and Bruce Mulkey is an amazing teacher. Although he doesn’t teach in the classroom, he’s been a teacher to me on how to show up in life in such a way as to create positive, life-affirming change in the world. Bruce is a model for how I want my own children to grow up. I’m excited to see Bruce sharing the journey he’s taken to become the man, and the father, that he is. His is a story of hope and transformation. It is the hero’s journey explained through the path of fatherhood.”

Tom Heck, leadership coach, teacher, inventor, and author of Fathers and Sons Together: A Manual for Growing Your Boys the F.A.S.T. Way

“An extraordinary addition to the ongoing dialogue about the state of our nation and world, and what can be done about it.”
