It’s not too late, it’s really not. You can still buy your dad a gift for Father’s Day, especially with the speed that eBooks or gift cards can be delivered. Here are my top 5 recommendations for father’s day gifts which your dad would love.
For the History Buff: Washington: A Life by Ron Chernow
This marvelous Pulitzer winner book breaks the wooden image of Washington and brings out the character of the man we all learned about with all his charm and personality.
For the Conspiracy Theorist: Enemies: A History of the FBI by Tim Weiner
– A marvelous book which about tells of the 100 year history of the famous organization. Mr. Weiner is a Pulitzer Prize winning author and a former New York Times reporter who wrote largely about American security.
For the Ambitious Dad: The Art of War by Sun Tzu
While The Art of War was certainly written with ancient Chinese generals in mind, it applies to all types of management and could be read over and over again (the book is about 64 pages) with new insights every time. The gift that keeps on giving.

Do you ever wish your square dad would lose a side and become a triangle (delta) just for a day. This memoir about the beginnings of the Army’s elite unit will take care of that.
For the Environmentalist Dad: The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey by Candice Millard
Go on an adventure with former President Theodore Roosevelt into the thick of the Amazon forest. You’d think twice about hugging a tree again.
Does your dad wear his sheriff pajama’s to bad?
Does he embarass you walking around with a 10 gallon steston calling your friends “pardner”?
This book is for him, where the author cuts through the myth to tell the reader how wild the west really was.

One of the most remarkable works of fiction which follows the lives of two artists who mirror Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel (creators of Superman). A Pulitzer Prize Winner.

No one I know didn’t like this book and your dad, WWII buff or not, is going to love it, I promise.
Of course, if all else fails you can still get an Amazon.com Gift Card – hey… at least you tried.
