SAN DIEGO, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- When a successful father and stubborn husband has an absurdly funny, poignant, possibly healthy midlife crisis and he tells everyone except his wife, a hundred tales of impossible comparison spring up in a new book called Father Days that gives dads everywhere hope for sanity.  Doug McQueen just turned 40 and discovers something about the world when he quits his job, spends six months cataloging history's greatest achievers, and reinvents himself along the way.   Find out how the world's greatest thinkers, most courageous hearts and greatest spirits help this cerebrally infected father of four discover what he wants to be when he grows up.

This book is for anyone who is familiar with a bodily side ache or managed to endure one.  A side ache will slow you down, cause you to catch your breath, or in some cases completely stop you in your tracks and render your body practically useless until it goes away.  Doug developed a kind of side ache in the head that lasted about one year and coincidentally struck him around the time he hit the big 4 0.   Through the process of writing the book, Doug rid himself of the annoying "side ache" in his brain, and penned a memorable and family-friendly gem of a tale.

When asked what he set out to do accomplish in writing the book, McQueen says, "I was going to write how one can become great by studying history's greatest achievers.  However in midstream, I realized that I was having a midlife crisis and that the book was only a symptom, so I changed the focus and context from a symptom to a cure."

Nick Popaditch, Gunnery Sergeant, United States Marine Corp and tank commander during Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom says about Father Days "…the story of Israeli tank commander Menachem Ganon is a glorious account of a brave soldier who made a difference in his unit and in the world by believing he could make it safely home from near death."  This book is for any man approaching forty, is already over forty, or is scared out of their mind in ever becoming forty and wants to power through it with masculine grace.

The book is available for purchase online in hard cover and in downloadable PDF format at Amazon.com, Smashwords.com and Lulu.com and other local retailers coming soon.
