Father Time 3rd Edition

‘Brilliant, readable and revealing. One day we will live in a different world, and this will be one of the books that made it so’ - Steve Biddulph, author of Raising Boys

First published in 1998, Father Time revolutionised fatherhood by helping men work toward what really matters – balancing work and family.

How are men supposed to work hard and have time to enjoy their children? In this revised and updated edition, Daniel Petre, who has experienced first hand both fatherhood and corporate success, shares his experience of parenting three daughters from childhood to adulthood in this how-to for busy fathers.

Father Time empowers every father to become more involved in their kids’ lives, with essential information on:
• Becoming a better father
• Fathers and corporate life
• Creating family-friendly companies
• Achieving a successful, balanced life

The father of three girls, Philanthropic internet entrepreneur Daniel Petre is also one of Australia’s most successful technology and media executives. A former lieutenant to Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates, he was the Managing Director of Microsoft Australia. In 2001 Daniel and his wife Carolyn founded the Petre Foundation, in which they have given thirty-five percent of their net wealth to Australian charities and organisations.
