Sue Baker's view...

Not confined to dancing, Dads can discomfit us in all sorts of ways, with so-called trendy hair-styles or “Dad” jeans or even the heinous sin of the dreaded sandal and sock combo. Poor Dads, it can be what they say, speeches being a particular downfall or how about the mid-life crisis and the ill-advised purchase of a too-low sports car? With Father’s Day on the horizon, Dad Dancing will provide a useful gift and also a gentle reminder if your Dad is starting to show any embarrassing signs.

Synopsis

Dad Dancing A Guide for Embarrassing Dads Everywhere by Ian Allen

It's official: dads were put onto this planet to embarrass the rest of their families. This hilarious book is a spotter's guide to the innumerable ways Dad can achieve this, whether it's via ridiculous dancing, experimental facial hair, cringeworthy sportswear or putting his foot in it at funerals. Contains a wealth of highly useful information for the discerning dad, including countdowns of the most embarrassing things Dads say in wedding speeches, the fashion fads Dad really shouldn't have bothered with and the 10 signs that Dad is having a midlife crisis, plus a handy diagrammatic guide to dancing like a dad and Dad's guides to travel, cleaning, hobbies, oneupmanship and many things besides. With all this plus a liberal scattering of charts, lists and jokes and illustrated with action shots of dads doing the things they love to do, this book is ideal for the dad in your life, or for any unsuspecting man who's about to become one. Word count: 20-30,000
