“Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance” are words from Bruce Sallan’s favorite movie, Singin’ In The Rain. The passion and excitement they evoke struck him to the core while he was taking a college film course taught by critic Manny Farber (author of the seminal book, “American Cinema.”). Later, you could say he felt “I Gotta Write.”

A few years later, Bruce was fortunate to get an internship with a television producer, while earning his M.B.A. from UCLA. What followed was an award-winning television executive and producing career.

Bruce’s focus is primarily on parenting issues from the dad’s point-of-view, though often the situations are gender-neutral. Yet, just as often they’re not. It is his contention that the dad’s point-of-view is less “heard” yet equally valuable to parents. His subject matter covers parenting situations he has experienced, but especially the ones that he believes are relevant to a great number of parents. That includes single parenting, divorce issues, dating as a single parent, step-parent issues, dealing with teens, drug and alcohol issues with teens, money issues, and sometimes just general issues about gender differences. His Men vs. Women blog series has become quite a hit and may be the impetus for his third book. A compilation of his first 100 blogs was the basis of Sallan’s first book, A Dad’s Point-of-View: We ARE Half the Equation
