For WOMEN ...and FATHERS OF DAUGHTERS

==============================

Here for the first time, you get to eavesdrop on men chatting with other men, when no woman is in the room, about the most wonderful and complicated relationship in their entire life... between a father and his daughter.

[For Fathers] Raising a daughter is different from anything you will ever experience. Here for the first time you get a personal look at what it's really like from a father's perspective. This could be the best training manual ever for fathers of daughters because it's from real fathers.

[For Women and Daughters]

What have you always wanted to ask your father, but couldn't?

Do you truly understand... when a man says something, there's often more going on beneath his words?

Whether she realizes it or not, a woman learned much about what men are "really" like, and how she fits into a world mostly run by men, by watching and listening to the first man in her life, her father.

But what if she missed something? What if there are secrets buried deep that most men will not share... secrets that could change a woman's entire understanding of what men (and her own dad) are "really" like?

Here for the first time, behaviorist James I. Bond provides "...an emotional glimpse into the complex relationship between fathers and their daughters."

Through powerful excerpts from personal interviews with 101 fathers of daughters, you get to eavesdrop on men chatting with other men, when no woman is in the room, about the most wonderful and complicated relationship in their entire life.

Go where few women have ventured. Here's a subject rarely discussed-the private fears and feelings of fathers with daughters. Sometimes wildly funny, sometimes profoundly sad, this book could be the best training manual ever for understanding what men are really feeling, beneath their often carefully-guarded image.

This collection from 101 personal interviews allows you to peer into a father's world of hidden feelings, words unsaid, and a complexity and joy that's too often misunderstood.

***READERS' FAVORITE 5-STAR AWARD WINNER***

"You will surely be amazed at what these fathers reveal about the relationship they have with their own daughters, whether it is good or not so good.

My dad and I had a wonderful relationship. And even though he is now in Heaven, I really enjoyed reading this book because it helps me to understand my dad and our relationship even more. This valuable book is so awesome that it is impossible to do more than touch the surface of the information included in a review.

I highly recommend this book for all fathers and daughters to read. You will really be glad and I am sure your relationship will never be the same."

"...Surprisingly candid...terrifically rewarding.

For women, here's an emotional glimpse into the complex relationship between fathers and their daughters-from a father's perspective.

Being the father of a daughter myself, I was really moved by the joys and heartaches many of these dads were willing to share."

Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite When his daughter was twenty-two years old, James I. Bond realized that he really didn’t know his daughter at all. This prompted him to start The Father-Daughter project and to put this book together. James Bond interviewed 101 fathers about their relationship with their daughters, and compiled their stories in this book, “The Secret Life of Fathers.” These stories came from all over the United States and from fathers of all ages, all walks of life, every race and economic situation. You will surely be amazed at what these fathers reveal about their relationship they have with their own daughters, whether it is good or not so good. How is your relationship with your daughter, dad? Do you understand when she suddenly wants a room of her own, or stay up late and sleep all day? How about a few years earlier when she was going through those wonderful, stubborn and terrible twos? Or maybe when situations happen such as a divorce, or when your daughter is now interested in boys, or maybe your daughter is now married, is she still ‘Daddy’s Little Girl?’ This is just the tip of the iceberg of what you will find in this wonderful book, “The Secret Life of Fathers.” My dad and I had a wonderful relationship, and even though he is now in Heaven, I really enjoyed reading this book because it helps me to understand my dad and our relationship even more. This valuable book is so awesome that it is impossible to do more than touch the surface of the information included in a review. I highly recommend this book for all fathers and daughters to read. You will really be glad and I am sure your relationship will never be the same.
