    Lots of Ways for Fathers and Sons to Connect!

    Review Summary: Fathers and Sons profiles 30 fathers and sons (and occasionally grandfathers and grandsons, as well) plus describes Mr. Richissin and Mr. Graham's relationships with their fathers. The examples look at the famous and the unknown, the heroic and the fallen, the typical and the unusual, and the traditional and the nontraditional relationships. These connections are exposed in the context of both soaring success and tragic loss . . . and everything in between. What speaks loudest is that the sons want to be connected to the fathers, regardless of how the relationship started out. Most dads will get ideas for how to be there for their sons in more ways. Review: This book is greatly enriched by emphasizing both photography and family relationships. Each exposition enhances the other. The expressions and body language of the pairs say a lot about their connections that an essay could not. Fathers and sons who feel estranged from each other will find this book most valuable. They will see that there is always a way to start again, and they will eventually be welcomed. The book will also be valuable to those who are about to face a family crisis, like an illness, death, or divorce. The examples here will give you ideas and courage for dealing with the inevitable in constructive, emotionally enriching ways. In the introduction, Mr. Richissin indicates that he asked the men and boys for candor. He seems to have been pretty successful in that way. A number of the men describe what had to have been the most painful moments in their relationships. That made the book more meaningful. Regardless of your interests, you will probably find fathers and sons whose occupations will be relevant to you. There are a number of sports star families including the McEnroes, Alomars, Mannings, Nicklauses, Graves, Lindroses, Pettys, and Esiasons. You also have performers like the Elliotts and Gebels. Journalists and authors are represented by the Keillors, Schapps, and the Wallaces. Business families are represented by the Mondavis. Politicians are represented by the Lockes. The stories of ordinary families are moving also. You don't have to be a celebrity or father one to be an inspiring father. Some did it even through their hobbies. The most touching story for me was about the Aycocks. Knowing that his grandson needed a kidney transplant to survive, grandfather Charlie insisted on being the donor. Going into surgery together and recoving forged an even closer bond than would otherwise have existed. I was also powerfully moved by Mike Wallace's description of having a sense that something was wrong with his son, Peter, and catching the next plane to look for him in France. Mr. Wallace found Peter's body at the bottom of a 150 foot cliff. The Lindroses inspired me by their strong desire to make choices that were good for the family in every circumstance. The courage of the Farrell-Forsteins in sharing their nontraditional family impressed me very much. After you finish enjoying this wonderful book, I suggest that you share what you learned from it with your father and son(s). Encourage them to read it, too. Then sit down together and discuss how you can make your relationships even richer. Share your heart with your father and son(s) to fulfill yourself! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The Irresistible Growth Enterprise and The 2,000 Percent Solution

    Much better than a tie: the perfect Fathers Day gift

    This is a revealing, funny, and often poignant book. Insightful, well-written essays and stunning photography give you a glimpse into the lives of 30 groups of fathers and sons from all walks of life, from celebrities to everyday folks. Sports fans especially will enjoy an inside look at the families of tennis great John McEnroe, NHL stars Eric Lindros and Adam Graves, Major League all-stars Sandy and Robbie Alomar, NFL QBs Peyton Manning and Boomer Esiason, the NASCAR Petty clan, golf legend Jack Nicklaus, and ESPN's Dick and Jeremy Schaap. In each instance--including the stories of journalists Mike and Chris Wallace, comedians Chris and Bob Elliot, writer Garrison Keillor, and others--the fathers and sons candidly present their relationships warts and all. Reading this book, you'll discover that all father-son relationships have much in common, but no two are alike. A perfect Fathers Day gift, it will make you and your Dad think about your relationship, a powerful, complex bond too often taken for granted. Plus, it's easy to wrap.
