Books for Dad this Father’s Day

This year, Father’s Day falls on 4 September — which means that there’s still time to get Dad something special.

To help you along, we have five suggestions of books that the father figures in your life would be delighted to receive, as nominated by those in the office awaiting their own Father’s Day festivities.

From the politically conscious to the nature-lovers, here are some of our top Father’s Day picks this year.

Who Needs the ABC?

For the dads who are interested in current affairs and our media landscape — Who Needs the ABC? is a passionate explanation of the role the ABC plays in Australia today, and why we need to defend it. 

Who Needs the ABC? is a gem. I don’t really watch free-to-air tele anymore, but when I do it’s almost always the ABC. It’s really tragic what has been happening there over the last few years and I think it’s really important we know the story, because so many people really do rely on (dare I say ‘need’) their reporting and programming.’

Our Members Be Unlimited

An easy read but filled with research, facts, and incredible illustrations, Our Members Be Unlimited is a gift in book form, no wrapping required. 

‘With Australian unions fighting for an increase to the minimum wage, better parental leave conditions, and a stronger childcare sector, there’s never been a better time for fathers to learn more about what unions are, what they’ve done, and what they can do for their members.’

My Soul Twin

A recommendation from a dad who’s read ahead — this is one to keep an eye out for in November. A modern-day Wuthering Heights from internationally bestselling author Nino Haratischvili, My Soul Twin tells the story of two families, one devastating secret, and an epic story of forbidden love.

My Soul Twin because it’s the follow-up to The Eighth Life which is one of my favourite books of all time.’

Rewilding the Urban Soul

For the nature-lover in your life — Rewilding the Urban Soul is a memoir that explores how that city-dwellers can reconnect with nature, and why we need to be paying attention to the land we’re on. 

‘I appreciate the value of connecting with the fundamentals of nature, and also slowing down from the hectic pace of modern life. I find the concept of rewilding to be a powerful way of getting in touch with the roots of life, and rediscovering our inner wilderness. Claire Dunn has had extensive experience in the field, and has many valuable insights to offer.’

Bulldozed

Pre-orders are one of the best ways to show both the publisher and bookstore your interest in a book — and that helps ensure that enough copies are available. With that in mind, consider pre-ordering this highly anticipated title for the politically engaged father in your life.

Bulldozed lays out the final unravelling of the Coalition government, with insider access to key players who were behind the scenes of the historic 2022 election. 

‘I love political intrigue and the idea of insider access to what really went on behind closed doors.’
