A former Wall Street Journal reporter offers the first-ever complete biography of one of America's most influential men. In Family Man, author Dale Buss (nominated for a Pulitzer Prize) presents the life and times of Dr. James Dobson, his many achievements, challenges, and his role in evangelicalism and the larger contemporary culture.

Dr. Dobson is one of the best known pychologists in America, the host of a daily radio program (with an audience that is exceeded only by Rush Limbaugh's and Paul Harvey's), and the author of multiple best-selling books whose favor is sought out by presidents and other national leaders. His organization, Focus on the Family, has become one of the largest parachurch ministries in the world.

Family Man is a fully-developed account of Dobson's life, giving both friends and detractors glimpses into the whole man and his beliefs, accomplishments, and impact.

Two hundred twenty million people worldwide tune in for his advice on the radio. The New York Times identified him as the nation’s most influential evangelical leader.

Supporters may laud his moral guidance, and critics decry his social and political activism, but Dr. James Dobson is a power-hitter in every arena of modern culture. You may recognize his name, but the complete story of this family man—his life, his influences, his worldwide ministry, and his heart for his own family—has never been told . . . until now.

Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist Dale Buss uncovers the full inside story of the man whose books, videos, and radio broadcasts have touched millions of marriages and families, and whose stances have influenced political elections. This revealing biography looks behind the scenes at a man whose public image is larger than life, but whose heart has always turned toward home.

About the Author:

The Journal nominated him for a Pulitzer Prize in 1986 for his reporting on General Motors. A Wisconsin native, Buss also was a newspaper editor in Milwaukee and in St. Petersburg, Florida.
