Comedian, Producer, Bestselling Author
“A wildly entertaining memoir, told from two very different perspectives, that explores ‘how to’ and ‘how not to’ navigate the complicated relationship between father and son. Charming, funny, touching and raw. I loved this book.”
ISS Astronaut, Bestselling Author
"The raw honesty that Kevin and Alex Newman have brought to their memoir, All Out, helped me to better see and understand the inevitably vast gap between father and son, as well as the strength of the bond. This book made me think, smile, frown, close my eyes, and hope to do a better job in the future as a father. A must read."
'The Social', @LaineyGossip
“Kevin Newman’s emotional honesty devastated me. What makes him a great journalist is that he’s not willing to let the truth off the hook. What makes him a great father is that he’s not willing to let himself off the hook. This is a powerful father-son story that challenges stereotypes of what it means to be a man and what it means to be a parent. I loved it.”
CTV News Chief Anchor
"Kevin Newman, one of Canada's great journalists, looks within and opens up to tell his own story with unflinching honesty. In a unique writing partnership with his son Alex, each man reveals his own painful secrets in a book that proves the cut-throat world of TV network news isn't remotely as challenging as navigating the unexpected curveballs of family life."

"Whether you’re attempting to strengthen the connection within a father-son relationship or searching for answers to the masculinity conundrum — Kevin and Alex provide a revealing perspective on the male experience that men open to the conversation need to read.”
Military Sniper, 'Amazing Race' finalist, Author: 'Unflinching'
"As a son, father and husband 'All Out' was like reading my own story. Generations of men have defined themselves by how well they provide, protect, and guide their children. Kevin and Alex Newman were forced to find a deeper connection, or face losing each other and themselves. This is a groundbreaking book for accomplished and driven men (and women!) struggling to have it all."
Bestselling Author: `Happy City`
“This is more than just a coming out story. It's much bigger than that. In this surprising and searingly honest tale, Kevin and Alex Newman confront the fearful gulf that often separates fathers and sons in public and private. The journey across that divide is really the journey to becoming a complete person. I couldn't help but cheer for them as they made the crossing.”
Investigative Journalist, Bestselling Novelist
“Trust always takes courage which makes this a brave book --- a product of deep mutual trust between a father and a son, members of a family, a high profile journalist and a huge following of people who believe they know and understand him. In "All Out" Kevin Newman and his courageous family allow themselves to be reconsidered in the context of one of the most complex human dramas of our time.”
Bestselling author of Persuasion, and star of Dragon's Den
“As a public figure, you learn to guard your privacy. I'm grateful Kevin Newman didn't, because his willingness to be vulnerable is going to change lives. This courageous book is a must-read for any parent.”
