Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Kevin Renner's book is exceptional. Why? With a gentle yet professional writing style he tells us stories of women from all walks of life and their relationships with their fathers. The stories are not just a journey for the reader, but Mr. Renner himself provides an honest perspective of himself as a father to two daughters. My husband comes from a broken and highly dysfunctional family; I come from a safe haven. We both read the book and found truths, ideas and inspiration in how to raise not only our daughter but also our son. A very worthwhile read.
Recently finished "In Search of Fatherhood." Had seen some interviews of the author - Kevin Renner - and had high expectations of this book. Read it in two days, tough to put down. There should be a law that no new father can leave the hospital with his wife and new child until he has read this book. - Kurt
