Most of these daughters and sons were eager to express the gratitude they had carried with them through the years. Others wanted to share lessons and memories and, most important, pass them down to their own children.
This book is for all fathers, young or old, who can learn from the men in these pages how to get it right, and to understand that sometimes it is the little gestures that can make the big difference for your child. For some in this book, the appreciation came later than they would have liked. But as Wisdom of Our Fathers reminds us, it is never too late to embrace it.
From the father who coached his daughter in sports (and life), attending every meet, game, performance, and tournament, to the daughter who, after a 15-year estrangement, learned to make peace with her difficult father just before he died, to the son who came, at last, to appreciate the silent way his father could show affection, Wisdom of Our Fathers shares rewarding lessons, immeasurable gifts, and lasting values.

Memories I wish I had.
I don't have memories of my father but I find it very easy to live through the memories of the stories told in this book. As I approach becoming a father for the first time at 44 I find myself urning for the closeness of these stories. I pray that my son or daughter will have the respect for me because of the way I raised them, This book is helping become the father I always wish I had.

I loved this book. The narrators are great, and I love it when the author reads part of the book. Great book to have in the car...by the time I got to work or came back home, I felt like I had my priorities all rearranged. very moving and entertaining.
