Finally, the unwritten rules of Dadhood have been written in Dad Law.
Since the dawn of time, all dads have understood that there are a set of rules for fathers—both old and new alike—that guide them to gleefully repeat terrible puns as well as to hone the perfect deadpan joke delivery. This handsome tome collects all of the governing laws of fatherhood, covering a vast array of conceivable situations ranging from fashion to tech to simply being a dad in public. At last, fathers need look no further to confirm that their instincts are 100 percent legally sound, whether it's to vigilantly guard the thermostat settings or to tell unsuspecting children, “Hey, pull my finger.”
It's not a choice. It's a law: Dad Law.
THE FIRST OF ITS KIND: Never before have all the rules of fatherhood been collected in such a definitive (and laugh-out-loud funny) way!
GOOD FOR ALL DADS: Full of universal dad rules that are inclusive of all kinds of dads and their unique families! Grandfathers and uncles, too!
HANDSOME AND GIFTABLE: Bound in faux leather with gold stamping, reminiscent of a law textbook, Dad Law is the perfect gift for Father's Day, birthdays, or baby showers.

I was given a copy of this book to review.
This is a very funny book, Being a father myself, I saw that I have even said many of the sayings in this book.. For example: " Dads must arrive at all locations and events early in order to beat the rush. Arriving anywhere at the same time as The rush is against Dad's Law. The rush is for fools with poor time management."
Also when I Dad is ready to leave, he will indicate it by suggesting, at a minimum, one of the following:
a. Let's rock and roll.
b. Let's hit the road.
c. let's blow this popsicle stand. (no dad knows the origin of the mystical popsicle stand; he only knows he wants to blow it..
I admit to saying and doing all of these myself. This is a must-read book, a truly funny and enjoyable book.
my rating is 5 stars out of 5.
I want to send a copy to every dad I know! What a fun, heartwarming collection for the whole family to enjoy! I love how everything is broken down by category (complete with references to other parts of the book). I can't remember the last time a book made me smile so much. Heartfelt and funny from the first page to the last word.
After reading through this I would say it is about what I expected. It feels like the target demographic here would be Gen x or older. It very much feels like it would be a gift for those dads. That being said, I am a Millennial father of five and feel very seen by several of these "laws." I found humor in several sections, but also quite a few clichés that had me rolling my eyes. I can think of multiple people that would really, really enjoy this and would purchase it as a gift. I think this book achieved what it set out to do; however, not really my cup of tea.
