9780062349613: All In: How Our Work-First Culture Fails Dads, Families, and Businesses--And How We Can Fix It Together

Winner of the Nautilus Gold Award for "exceptional literary contributions." Previous winners include the Dalai Lama and Deepak Chopra.

To advance businesses, societies, and families, it's time to treat dads as equal caregivers to their children.  Time for all of us, men and women, to correct our understandings of men. All In shatters myths about fathers. It shows that women can't get equal opportunities in the workplace if men can't get equal opportunities at home. It is being called a "rallying cry," the "anthem" of our time, igniting a revolution for gender equality.

"Fantastic" - New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow

"A must-read" - Washington Post’s Brigid Schulte

"Fascinating" - Chicago Tribune

"One of the top books of the year" - NewsOne

“Groundbreaking... Should be mandatory reading for every CEO" - Debra Isaacs Schafer, CEO of Education Navigation

Josh Levs spent 20 years reporting for NPR and CNN, where he became a lead on-air fact checker. He then turned his attention to modern parenthood, stunning viewers with frank discussions among men. Then, Levs was denied fair parental leave to care for his preemie daughter and sick wife. He responded with legal action against CNN/Time Warner and a public campaign that landed him on the front page of the New York Times. His effort drew support from all sectors across the United States and worldwide. The company ultimately revolutionized its policy for the better -- and other numerous other corporations have followed suit.

Topics covered in All In include:

Why paternity leave is a crucial women's rights issue

Why paid family leave is a baby's human right

How Mad Men thinking still plagues businesses

How men and women can work together to update our work structures

The solutions that lift profits and expand the economy

The toll this problem is taking on men's and women's mental and physical health

The truth about parents and sex

And much more.

Product Description:

When journalist Josh Levs was denied fair parental leave by his employer after his child was born, he fought back—and won. Since then, he’s become an advocate for modern families and working fathers. In All In, he explores the changing face of fatherhood and what it means for our individual lives, families, workplaces, and society.

Fatherhood today is far different from previous generations. Stay-at-home dads are increasingly common, and growing numbers of men are working part-time or flextime schedules to spend more time with their children.  Even the traditional breadwinner-dad is being transformed. Dads today are more emotionally and physically involved on the home front. They are “all in” and—like mothers—they are struggling with work-life balance and doing it all.

Journalist and “dad columnist” Josh Levs explains that despite these unprecedented changes, our laws, corporate policies, and gender-based expectations in the workplace remain rigid. They are preventing both women and men from living out the equality we believe in—and hurting businesses in the process. Women have done a great job of speaking out about this, Levs—whose fight for parental leave made front page news across the country—argues. It’s now time for men to join in.

Combining Levs’ personal experiences with investigative reporting and frank conversations with fathers about everything from work life to money to sex, All In busts popular myths, lays out facts, uncovers the forces holding all of us back, and shows how we can all join together to change them.

From the Back Cover:

When journalist and fatherhood columnist Josh Levs was denied fair parental leave by his employer after his child was born, he fought back—and won. In the process, he became a leading advocate for modern families. In All In, he shows how father-hood today is far different than for previ-ous generations and what that means for our individual lives, families, workplaces, and society.

Growing numbers of men are becoming stay-at-home dads, working part-time, or taking on flexible schedules to spend more time with their children. Even the traditional breadwinner-dad is being trans-formed. Dads today are more emotionally and physically involved on the home front than ever before. They are "all in" and—like mothers—struggling with work-life balance and doing it all.

Levs explains that despite these un-precedented changes, the structures that shape our family lives remain rigid. Our laws, corporate policies, and gender-based expectations in the workplace are horribly outdated, preventing both women and men from living out the equality we believe in—and hurting businesses in the process, too. Women have done a great job of speak-ing out about this, Levs argues. It's time for men to join in—in a big way.

Combining Levs's personal experiences with investigative reporting and frank con-versations with fathers about everything from work life to money to sex, All In busts popular myths, lays out facts, uncovers the forces holding all of us back, and shows how we can join together to change them.
