Is there a Merlin Mann fan club? If not, I’m obliged to start one. This is … I’ll call it an essay for lack of more accurate descriptor. It’s an essay on what it means to be a husband and father and hard worker all at the same time. Somehow Merlin also sneaked in some rugged individualism, as only he can do - some “I Did It My Way.” And because Merlin Writes with heart three sizes too large, it’s also a touching tribute to both his parents, to his wife, and to his daughter. It’s bold. It’s honest. It’s funny. It’s vintage Merlin Mann. You MUST read this. And you must buy any book he ever publishes henceforth.
