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, according to Levs, whose fight for parental leave made front page news across the country. 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.

    Maria Shriver, New York Times bestselling author and NBC News correspondent and anchor

  • “A must read. All In crushes outdated yet powerful stereotypes and—with fresh voices, insightful research and a passionate call to action—offers a more expansive, more hopeful, and ultimately more human vision of what it means to be a good man.”

    Brigid Schulte, New York Times bestselling author of Overwhelmed

  • “CNN reporter Levs issues an articulate call for men to fight against the laws, policies, and stigmas preventing them from fully participating in their families’ lives…His practical solutions—like helping businesses to afford family leave by lowering taxes—are solid, but…Lev’s thoughtful plea for men and women to work together is more persuasive, providing a useful guide for those looking to effect change in their own workplaces and communities.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Through his straightforward analysis, Levs shows how the male-female dynamics at home have changed significantly over the past fifty years, while those same forces have not changed in the workplace…Well-documented and easy-to-comprehend data on why men need more paid time off to be with their newborn children.”
