Dean’s book – Daddy’s OK

I am pleased to provide you with some details on a book recently released by our Chairman – Dean Mason.

Dean’s book – Daddy’s OK – contains stories of affirmation for separated Dads and ventures into the intimate experiences of 14 men who have been through a family break-up.  At each step, from the moment the man realises his relationship is in serious trouble through to finding, or nearly finding, fulfilment in life as a separated, or, in some cases, as a re-united parent, Dean captures what it is that keeps the man going, what hope enlightens him, what tools he finds to help him take a more positive approach than the many negative alternatives that tempt him along the way.
