Men who have abdicated their roles as fathers have contributed to the single greatest problem in society today. In That's My Dad!, authors Joe Pellegrino and Joe Battaglia look at the impact of fathers in the lives of successful men and women in the competitive worlds of media, arts and entertainment, and professional sports. To compete at the highest level of any profession requires not just skill but the confidence to stand the stress and mental toughness required to be successful. Many men and women have natural skills, but many would be the first to say that without the affirming love and support from their fathers or a father figure, they would not have made it to the top of their fields. That's My Dad! will look at father models, both positive and negative, that help shape the role models of today. This book demonstrates the power of true fatherhood and the difference it makes in the lives of children. All of us want to, or yearn that we could, stand up and shout, That's my dad!


There is no clearer view into the heart of a father than through the eyes of his children. That's My Dad! gives us an extraordinary gift of heartwarming stories from national world changers about their dads. Serving as a fathering guidebook to those who want practical wisdom about how to turn their heart goals into action, this book is one of the most powerful fathering books I've ever read. It doesn't just tell; it shows how to be an invested parent. If every dad in America took to heart the lessons taught by these mentor dads, it would positively change the landscape of our entire country. - DR.

From my early days in professional baseball to working with college kids afterward, one thing was always obvious: the caliber of any individual is shaped tremendously by the presence or absence of a father in that young person's life. In That's My Dad! my friends Joe Pellegrino and Joe Battaglia illustrate how vital that father figures are and how the ultimate Father, God, can help fill a void left by absentee fathers. It's a book well worth reading. - BOBBY RICHARDSON, Former New York Yankees star second baseman In this day and age when one of the world's greatest, most vital institutions--that of fatherhood--is under attack, Joe Pellegrino and Joe Battaglia have done us a huge favor. By capturing such varied accounts of fatherhood experiences, they have touched on the topic in nearly every way imaginable, and in so doing, show us the importance and necessity of dads. - CHRIS BROUSSARD, Internationally known NBA analyst for the ABC and ESPN television networks as well as an award-winning journalist for ESPN The Magazine and I am honored to tell the story of my dad in the must-read book That's My Dad!
