Praise for The Life of Dad by Jon Finkel and Art Eddy

"When I found out I was going to be a dad I thought, 'Can I handle it? . . .' Reading The Life of Dad will help you relax and know that it's worked out for all these amazing dads, and it'll work out for you."
--Mark Cuban, entrepreneur, Dallas Mavericks owner, Shark Tank star

"I was happy to chat with the crew here at Life of Dad a while back and share all sides of fatherhood with them. There is a saying that it takes a village to raise a child. With this book you can use the wisdom from all of these dads to help you raise your children."
--Jim Kelly, Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback

"Dads don't stop for directions, read assembly instructions, or consult the owner's manual. But everything a dad needs to know is in here. The Life of Dad contains the collected wisdom, knowledge, and love of countless fathers."
--Steve Rushin, bestselling author, National Sportswriter of the Year winner

Praise for The Athlete: Greatness, Grace and the Unprecedented Life of Charlie Ward by Jon Finkel

"Charlie Ward is not only a once-in-a-lifetime athlete, he's a once-in-a-lifetime person. The Athlete is the remarkable, page-turning biography his story deserves."
--Tony Dungy, Super Bowl Champion Head Coach

Praise for Heart Over Height by 3x NBA Dunk Champion Nate Robinson, co-authored by Jon Finkel

"From the very minute my orange and blue, my New York Knickerbockers drafted Nate Robinson, I was a big fan of his. I even wore his game-worn road blue #4 jersey at Madison Square Garden. . . . Us little guys gotta stick together. Please read and enjoy Nate's journey. Once a Knick, always a Knick. (P.S. we should have never traded him in the first place.)"
--Spike Lee, Filmmmaker, Da Republic of Brooklyn, NY
