THE PLAYBOOK FOR DADS Parenting Your Kids in the Game of Life

by | Read by Alan Robertson

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

By underplaying the pathos in this touching lesson/memoir, Allan Robertson’s relaxed, authentic-sounding performance makes this audio come across like a memorable conversation with the former Buffalo Bills quarterback. The talented narrator sounds totally in sync with every component of the author’s story—his devotion to professional football, his heartbreaking struggle with having a special needs son who died at age 8, and especially his growth as a father, husband, and man. It’s full of fascinating football stories that will captivate anyone passionate about the game. The humble advice illustrated by these stories is organized around nine character ideals such as respect, gratitude, teamwork, and responsibility. Each chapter on these ideals is charmingly bookended with Kelly’s poignant letters of admiration to his son and gentle advice to his two daughters.
