Here’s what people are saying about All In.

All In is an inspired, positive and original approach to the ideal of loving being a father. Josh Levs has touched me. Not literally, but philosophically—as being proud to be a man in our society whose voice can be heard if we simply employ the contents of this wonderful read.

Bob Sagetcomedian, actor, director, and author of bestseller Dirty Daddy

A new generation of fathers is joining legions of women in the fight for equality.  All In shows how men and women can unite to overcome the outdated policies and gender-based stigmas holding them back and to make big changes that help families, businesses, and the entire nation.

Levs says it well: ‘the first months of life have a huge impact on the following years.’ We all benefit when families – moms and dads – get more quality time at home with their kids from the get-go. Let’s go all in to fix the policies that make it so.

A must read. All In crushes outdated yet powerful stereotypes and—with fresh voices, insightful research and a passionate call to action—offers a more expansive, more hopeful and ultimately more human vision of what it means to be a good man.

Brigid Schulteauthor of New York Times bestseller Overwhelmed

Dads matter! Josh Levs passionately makes the case that society has marginalized the role of fathers, and it’s time we pay attention to this unbalance. I hope All In leads to a serious national discussion.

Working fathers and mothers need the same things: paid leave, flexible work, child care, and access to services that allow them to be who they want to be at work, at home, and in the community. All In does a superb job of showing how we can make positive changes that benefit organizations, employees and their families, and our society.

All In is at once a reality check and a passionate call to action. The changes we need in the workplace—from paid parental leave to additional flexibility and more—will not only be better for families, they’ll also be better for business. Josh Levs lays out a clear and compelling path for how dads can join with moms to make these changes happen.

Josh Levs leaves virtually no stone unturned in cataloging the state of modern fatherhood, uncovering its game-changing impact on masculinity, relationships, media, marketing, and more. His insights and conclusions will serve as a roadmap to the coming decade of parenting and relationship research, family leave policies, and product marketing efforts.

John Pacinicofounder of XY Media and Dad 2.0 Summit

One of the most important books written about fatherhood. Engaging and entertaining, All In should be read by fathers, mothers, CEOs, policy makers, and anyone who cares about improving American society.

Cynthia Calvertpresident of Workforce 21C

All In represents the voice of any parent who feels boxed in by gender stereotypes, at home and at the office. Josh’s energetic style and exhaustive research—from hundreds of real parents navigating really challenging times—comprise an important treatise on how to reboot our obsolete instincts and policies toward working parents.

Doug Frenchcofounder of XY Media and Dad 2.0 Summit

All In is a must-read for anyone concerned with gender equity and the advancement of women to the highest levels of business. He “follows the money” to make the compelling argument that not only is equality in policy and use of parental leave good for families, it’s also good for business. Thanks, Josh, for your smart, important and relevant business and social discourse.

”LITERALLY changed my life! … I can’t say enough about this book. Thanks, Josh, for bettering the lives of fathers and mothers EVERYWHERE!!!!!!”

Amazon review (All In has a five-star rating)

Josh is making an impact with his appearances around the world.

Josh’s talk was brilliant, engaging, and thought provoking. Hard facts helped dispel myths and highlighted the tangible social and economic benefits in having a more equal balance between the sexes. Most importantly, it was heartfelt and delivered with humor.

Rachel Jacobs, Financial Times Women At The Top Summit

Josh, it was the highlight of the day. You’re a role model.

Roberta Guise, Bay Area Women’s Summit

Josh was fabulous! A riveting storyteller with a powerful message that will empower men and women. The event standing room only and opened up great conversations that continued long after.

Katrina Alcorn, GE

Josh is a master of presenting compelling and complex subject matter in an easy-to-understand approach that makes you want to get and join the crusade. Every company and place of higher learning should be required to have Josh present.

Walter J. McDonald, Barclaycard

What a joy it was! Josh is not only a charismatic and eloquent speaker but a visionary who puts family at the core. Highly recommended!!!

Dana Chaaban, Florida Association for Women Lawyers

Josh is the leader we need to change the way we view women, men, and the workplace. He convinced 3% audience that our work-first culture holds us all back.

Lisen Stromberg, 3% Conference for women in advertising

I want to recognize what a great job Josh Levs did facilitating the Watermark panel that we at Juniper sponsored on gender partnership.  Josh did a great job leveraging all three of us on the panel and keeping both us and the audience engaged.  The result was we had long lines of people at the microphones for questions!

Terese Kemble, CHRO and SVP of Human Resources, Juniper Networks

Josh Levs blew us all away, I have never seen anyone do a better job! EVER!!!!

Robyn Spizman, Global Purpose Summit

Josh is, in every sense, a remarkable speaker and human being. He is easy to work with and has the highest level of professional integrity. His talk captivated our audience as he shared incredible data about the impact of gender treatment for both men and women. I would recommend Josh for any conference or corporate speaking role, and look forward to having him back next year to educate and entertain our audience.

Mary Legakis Engel, Managing Director, Global Women's Leadership Summit

Our intention was that Josh would bring a fresh perspective, research, facts and inspiration to an old dialogue and challenge: that of equality. What he brought was just that, but so much more.  With truth telling, authenticity, and humor, Josh won this city over by a landslide, compelling us… to link arms to break the cycles once and for all. Thank you Josh, for being such a beacon of information, truth, spirit and inspiration.

Sheli Gartman, Women Ignite Summit

We asked Josh to give a talk and moderate a panel He was a pleasure to work with and incredibly responsive to our needs. As for Josh’s presentation, he was dynamic, engaging, and a great storyteller. He gave a talk that was perfect for engaging all students on the topic of gender.  As for his role in moderating the panel, his delivery was amazing. He was very well prepared and seamlessly transitioned from one speaker to the next, while adding thoughtful and on-topic commentary throughout. Given his experience as a journalist, he was also spot on with the timing and did a great job keeping our speakers in line. Josh will be my go-to guy!

Nicole Stephens, Kellogg School of Management

Mind blown by Josh Levs talking about gender stereotypes reducing opportunities for women and men.

Craig R. Wright, Haas Women in Leadership Conference

Josh Levs enlightened many.  I’ll be looking at life differently.

Jennifer Hartsock, HERWorld 17 Summit

He blew my mind. I am passionate about people advancing their careers, especially women because I know the obstacles. I’ve read, studied, observed, coached, mentored, and sponsored on behalf of women. I learned something from Josh that I had not heard before: societal structures reinforce that men’s place is at work. Of course, this structure has an impact on women but I hadn’t considered it until I heard Josh speak. I strongly recommend Josh as a keynote speaker.
