Overview

From the New York Times-bestselling authors of THE PACT

Drs. Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt discovered early in their friendship that they shared a disturbing trait: as children, they navigated dangerous inner-city life without a father’s guidance. In spite of this, they escaped delinquency and crime to form the Pact, dedicated to putting themselves on the road to success. Now, the Three Doctors make a new promise: to set aside their resentment, and rebuild the relationships with their fathers—men they barely recognize. Told in alternating voices between father and son, The Bond explores the hard lessons of growing up without a father and suggests ways to stem the tide of fatherlessness in communities across the country. Honest, brave, and poignant, The Bond is a book for every child and every family.

This book moved me. I am so motivated more than before. So I highly recmmend this book to anyone with dreams that they feel they can not achieve. This book is for all walks of life. This book will make you a believer. After reading this book after I finish school it made me excited about going farther and going to medical school. I love this book because it relates to me because I too want to be a doctor and never read a book quite like this one. So now I am so ready to take on any challenge in my life.

These three young men vividly describe each of their experiences of growing up "fatherless" and bring much needed focus to a topic that is of epidemic proportion in today's society. With the book broken into segments, the child's upbringing is detailed from the perspective of the son as well as the father, each explaining what occurred during this period. I highly recommend this book to gain a better understanding of the role a father plays in shaping their child's future by exploring the challenges faced by children when they are absent from the home. This book should be recommended reading for all, regardless of gender, and especially for anyone thinking of starting a family!

In Newark, Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt met as fatherless children struggling to survive ghetto living without a male mentor or role model they formed THE PACT in high school to help one another make it and they succeeded as each became a doctor. --- In THE BOND, the physicians look into the most prevalent disease destroying America¿s family: no father. The trio does this by seeking their dads, who never had a role in their lives. The threesome separately describe growing up fatherless and how difficult that is to overcome, but do not add any new insight than they already described in the PACT. However, their recommendations to youths suffering from this pandemic illness are solid especially to go out and find a role model to mentor you. However, the most poignant segments are the sections written by the absentee dads, who offer no rationalization as to why, but explain their failures in depth. Especially discerning is that each of them also grew up fatherless. THE BOND is a moving autobiography and though anecdotal should be must reading for everyone who wonders what has gone wrong with the American family unit as generational repetition is difficult to turn around. --- Harriet Klausner
