    I purchased "Why A Son Needs A Father" for my own son who is now a Father to his son. I have watched my son implement the way in which a loving Father gives of himself to his son. My son missed having the kind of Father described in this touching tribute to why a son needs a Father.

    As a mother I always felt my son's pain about not having the kind of Father that other little boys deserve a right to have in order to experience that very special bond. It was with joy that I read the book first in Barnes & Nobles. My heart soared knowing how much my own son who is a Father would know even more deeply "Why A Son Needs A Father."

    i have a very big family and there are only 3 of us boys, i'm the youngest of all, and my brother is just older than me, he hasn't been the greatest son and him and my dad clash sometimes, and he doesn't always show that he loves my dad. but on christmas he gave this book to my dad and wrote a letter with it, my dad read the letter out loud and passed the book around. to say the least it touched my brother and my dad a lot, everyone had some tears, my dad choked up and just sat there looking at the book and card for a bit with his eyes teary. my brother had to leave the room, this book was very good.

    Great gift

    As a father of two teenage boys this book was a great gift to them. It helped us to remember who we are and where our relationship is going. It reminded me that being a dad is a wonderful feeling.
