    Essential for every Daddy

    If you want to be a Daddy - a good Daddy - read this book. It gives wonderful insight as to how important you are - not just how you treat your daughter but how you treat her mother. I try to buy a coppy for every man expecting a daughter. This book really impacted my husband's life - since we have three daughters at home.

    Okay - for men to read, not women

    This book is geared more for a man. How to help him be a better father and what happens when the father is absent from a woman's life, how it affects her. It was a good read, but I was looking more for a book from a woman's point of view. I can't make my father read the book, even if I give it to him, plus I am already an adult. The last chapter also starts talking about the authors religion, a little too much.

    Great for Fathers and Daughters alike

    This book has helped shed light on many areas of the father-daughter relationship by providing real life examples, laughter, and easy to understand advise. We were amazed at how Dr. Kevin Leman so accuratly predicted the type of husband a daugher will choose due to the relationship between she and her father, along with other nuggets of information. We recommend this book for any father or daughter who want to gain a better relationship with one another. This also makes a great gift for the new father!
