Jon Reiner’s novel The Man Who Couldn’t Eat is the perfect pick for the food-loving dad. The novel was raved about by Sheknows.com who said, “The Man Who Couldn’t Eat will give you a new appreciation for the importance that food and eating have in all of our lives.”
Between Two Fires by Christopher Buehlman is the perfect novel for any dad who loves Game of Thrones.

Sara Yogev’s book A Couple’s Guide to Happy Retirement is the perfect pick for older dads headed into retirement.
