What if no one cares? Worse, what if people don’t like it?

I’m very happy to report that the early returns on The Working Dad’s Survival Guide are strong (It was initially the #1 Best Seller for Job Markets and Advice on Amazon). But more importantly, the book is out there helping people. Here’s what readers have to say about The Working Dad’s Survival Guide (now available as an e-book and audio book!) through their reviews on Amazon:

5 Star Reader Reviews:

If you’re a working dad, buy this book now!

I am a Working Dad to 2 teenagers. This is a must read for any Working Dad. So much of the writing out there today focuses on telling Moms how to balance work and family, but there was nothing for Dads! Now there is. Scott Behson uses his research and personal experience to provide very practical advice to Dads struggling to break the legacy of Dads work and Moms raise kids. Behson quotes many Dads in the book who have had both positive and negative experiences trying to balance work and family. Our kids need their Dads to be involved, and this book can help us do just that. There are stories, examples, and actual exercises you can do. Buy it for yourself, your husband, your Brother, your Son. I highly recommend!

As entertaining as it is intelligent

Finally! Scott Behson has given us a book about working dads. If you watched last year’s Super Bowl or you’re paying attention

Outstanding and thought-provoking

An outstanding book filled with thought provoking ideas and sound advice. You will enjoy the author’s sense of humor, and benefit from the exercises that promote self-reflection

Nobody knows dads like dads

What a terrific piece of work. Scott combines the savvy of an experienced father, the wit of a seasoned blogger and the academic discipline of a PhD to put together a piece of work that is at once inspiring, uplifting and practical. Being a dedicated father and committed professional can leave a man feeling like he’s floating in the middle of the ocean without a

Great stories are shared by dads who navigated their way…

I wish Scott wrote this book 15 years ago when my sons were

This is a great guide!

The wonderful thing about Dr. Behson is not only his pedigree but also his real experience as a working dad—the two go hand-in-hand to shape a very helpful, relatable book.

Road map for working dads

Working Dads Survival Guide combines success stories of real working dads with practical advice that finally gives new and expecting fathers a resource to navigating tough conversations with our parenting partners and our employers. Look forward to recommending to every working dad I meet.

This book is for moms, too!

As a busy working mother, I’ve always been focused on how I should survive and better balance my time with my young


This is an excellent book. It’s clear that Dr. Behson has done the research and understands this topic at the highest of academic levels, yet in the book he presents the material in a supportive way that anyone could understand. He doesn’t lecture, he helps the reader understand, and then use the newfound understanding to improve their situation. We all want to be the best dads we can be, and Dr. Behson wants that fo us too.

I previously shared what work-life experts, best-selling authors, and fatherhood advocates had to say about my book. But the reactions of the working dads for whom I wrote the book are the most important. I couldn’t be more proud of these reviews. I hope they inspired you to buy the book, or, if you have already done so, write your own review on Amazon.
