Über diesen Titel


In this unique parenting guide, a veteran businessman and father of two reveals how work and parenting don't have to be separate, competing efforts, but instead can help and enrich each other. Tom Hirschfeld shows how many of the skills and abilities required to succeed in today's economy -- such as motivation, team building, empathy, negotiation, and planning -- can be applied just as successfully to parenting. Filled with lessons from business history, tips from successful executives, and practical wisdom that could come only from real-life experience, Business Dad is the perfect job manual for the most important job a businessman can undertake: fathering.
-- Perfect gift for Father's Day.

From Publishers Weekly:

This smart, straight-shooting work could very well be required reading in all graduate schools of business and is a welcome addition to the small but growing number of books on parenting aimed primarily at fathers (such as Kevin Nelson's The Daddy Guide and Aaron Hass's The Gift of Fatherhood). Hirschfeld, a venture capitalist and a former v-p at Salomon Brothers, writes in a terse style that mimics corporate bestsellers (e.g., The Pursuit of Wow! by Tom Peters), but the content is remarkably free of the self-centered, clich?-ridden tips found in most books on business. Instead, Hirschfeld aims for five goals and expertly hits each one: "Help good businessmen use their skills to be great fathers, and vice versa. Use language that businessmen can relate to, not psychobabble. Rely on common sense and experience. Address the special issues that businessmen face in trying to be dads. Make it fun." At first, it seems the book will not rise above analogies ("Make the investment that real fathering requires and you will find yourself reaping ample rewardsAboth present and future"). But chapters on effective cooperation between husbands and wives ("Joint-Venture Partners"), successfully listening to and understanding children ("Knowledge Is Power") and the tools and techniques of exerting responsible yet empathic authority and discipline should make even the most unregenerate workaholic dad understand Hirschfeld's basic message: "Fatherhood, more than business, is almost always what shapes a man's personal legacy. Simply stated, it is the most important job we'll ever undertake." (June)
