For the dad approaching his sixties:
A Diary of My Sixty-First Year: The Beginning of the End, or the End of the Beginning?
by Ian Brown
As Ian Brown’s sixtieth birthday loomed, every moment seemed to present a choice: Confront, or deny, the biological fact that the end was now closer than the beginning. True, he was beginning to notice memory lapses, creaking knees, and a certain social invisibility—and yet, it troubled him that many people think of sixty as “old,” because he rarely felt older than at forty.
An award-winning writer, Brown instead chose to notice every moment, try to understand it, capture it . . . all without panicking. Sixty is the result: Brown’s uncensored account of his sixty-first year, and, informed by his reportorial gifts, his investigation of the many changes—physical, mental, and emotional—that come to all of us as we age.
For the nature-loving dad:
Clues and Patterns from Puddles to the Sea
by Tristan Gooley
Read the sea like a Viking and interpret ponds like a Polynesian—with a little help from the “natural navigator”!
In his eye-opening books The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs and The Natural Navigator, Tristan Gooley helped readers reconnect with nature by finding direction from the trees, stars, clouds, and more. Now, he turns his attention to our most abundant—yet perhaps least understood—resource.
Distilled from his far-flung adventures—sailing solo across the Atlantic, navigating with Omani tribespeople, canoeing in Borneo, and walking in his own backyard—Gooley shares hundreds of techniques in How to Read Water.
For the dad who loves crosswords:
Ingenious, Perplexing, and Totally Satisfying Math and Logic Puzzles
by Alex Bellos
Puzzle lovers, rejoice! Bestselling math writer Alex Bellos has a challenge for you: 125 of the world’s best brainteasers from the last two millennia.
Armed with logic alone, you’ll detect counterfeit coins, navigate river crossings, and untangle family trees. Then—with just a dash of high school math—you’ll tie a rope around the Earth, match wits with a cryptic wizard, and use four 4s to create every number from 1 to 50. (It can be done!)
The ultimate casebook for daring puzzlers, Can You Solve My Problems? also tells the story of the puzzle—from ancient China to Victorian England to modern-day Japan. Grab your pencil and get puzzling!
For the dad who loves chores:
Enlightenment for Every Man on Ironing, Vacuuming and Other Household Arts
by Andrew Martin
Perfectly pitched to strike some raw nerves: A witty, often surprising manifesto about how and why men should do housework—and a very useful guide for both the millions of men who shirk household duties and the women who live with them.
“You might not think that a book about cleaning could be funny but this made me laugh out loud. In the office. During a quiet lunch hour.”
