Soap star Don Diamont's most interesting storyline to date is being the real-life father and ringleader of his seven rambunctious boys.
Don Diamont's MY SEVEN SONS AND HOW WE RAISED EACH OTHER is a fatherhood book for today's modern, blended family; a dude book that doesn't shy away from an emotional body slam; and, a giftable Dad book that also functions as a love song to a magnificent Mom.
With humor and compassion, Don takes the readers on a rollercoaster ride from the depths and sorrow of the passing of his own father and brother, to the heights of Hollywood and global glam, to becoming a father himself and the unlikely assemblage of his blended brood. Only two of his seven sons are his biological children. Looking back on the men who raised, coached, and mentored him, Diamont speaks candidly about the powerful lessons he's learned. Looking forward, as his seven boys become men, he reflects on the manly art of fatherhood and leaves us with a winning portrait of an American family in a world where the concept of family is being redefined.
