Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I read this book in College, while trying to understand why my father and I had a less than satisfactory relationship. This book helped me to learn what hardships my Dad had to overcome to be DAD and how emotionally challenging that was for him. His background had kept a wedge between us, but I never understood why, until this book. I learned how to love him at his stage of life, and how not to expect too much, but to help guide him on how to best administer to my needs through communication and love. This book changed the way I viewed my father and his experience, and gave me a way to love him and have the relationship that I always wanted to have with him.
