Winner of the Nautilus Gold Award for "exceptional literary contributions." Previous winners include the Dalai Lama and Deepak Chopra.

To advance businesses, societies, and families, it's time to treat dads as equal caregivers to their children.  Time for all of us, men and women, to correct our understandings of men. All In shatters myths about fathers. It shows that women can't get equal opportunities in the workplace if men can't get equal opportunities at home. It is being called a "rallying cry," the "anthem" of our time, igniting a revolution for gender equality.

"Fantastic" - New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow

"Fascinating" - Chicago Tribune

"One of the top books of the year" - NewsOne

“Groundbreaking... Should be mandatory reading for every CEO" - Debra Isaacs Schafer, CEO of Education Navigation

Josh Levs spent 20 years reporting for NPR and CNN, where he became a lead on-air fact checker. He then turned his attention to modern parenthood, stunning viewers with frank discussions among men. Then, Levs was denied fair parental leave to care for his preemie daughter and sick wife. He responded with legal action against CNN/Time Warner and a public campaign that landed him on the front page of the New York Times. His effort drew support from all sectors across the United States and worldwide. The company ultimately revolutionized its policy for the better -- and other numerous other corporations have followed suit.

Topics covered in All In include:

Why paternity leave is a crucial women's rights issue

Why paid family leave is a baby's human right

How Mad Men thinking still plagues businesses

How men and women can work together to update our work structures

The solutions that lift profits and expand the economy

The toll this problem is taking on men's and women's mental and physical health

The truth about parents and sex

And much more.
