National work/family expert and speaker Scott Behson has penned a first book, The Working Dad’s Survival Guide: How to Succeed at Work and at Home with the intention to help out dads who feel as if providing for their families and being present fathers is an impossible task. While Scott recognizes that the burden of work and family falls heaviest on working women, he also realizes that working men generally receive less support from their peers and institutions. With his book, Scott hopes to aid fathers and raise awareness. The Working Dad’s Survival Guide is out from Motivational Press today and has already been met with open arms by fathers and the people who care about them – It’s currently Amazon’s #1 new release for career advice!

For a taste of the book, check out Scott’s articles covering topics ranging from saving money, to negotiating for workplace flexibility that will be useful for a new dad or any father who has been contending with his work and familial responsibilities (50% of working dads say that they struggle with work and family balance). Even those who feel like they can handle their responsibilities may find new insights from Scott’s articles and The Working Dad’s Survival Guide.

Scott has been an advocate for working fathers for numerous years, speaking at events such as the White House Summit on Working Families. We hope The Working Dad’s Survival Guide is the first step in a larger conversation concerning working dads.
