Publisher's Summary

Pediatrician and best-selling author Meg Meeker has a message: stop undervaluing fatherhood.
We live in a culture that hails motherhood as a woman's crowning achievement yet defines men first and foremost by their professional accomplishments, treating fatherhood as almost incidental - a bonus. But from her years spent as a pediatrician listening to children's needs and fears, Dr. Meeker understands just how crucial a father's role is.
Hero is a powerful affirmation of fatherhood that shows men how being a strong, active father can be their greatest triumph.

Worth the read

I'm not a father. Still a 22 year old single male. I just got the book because I'm curious to what a man is. I found my answer in this book. Be a leader. Not a coach but a leader. It also shows the importance of a dad. Shoutout to all the single moms out there. Listening to this book brought me back to my childhood. I was fortunate enough to have both parents. This books makes me think I can be a dad now. I'm inspired to be a teacher now.

Good but not great.

I bought this book for encouragement and tips on being the very best father possible. The book did a good job giving examples of different family situations and how to tackle them but was a let down in other areas. One example was “if your dad failed you or had bad habits, don’t do what your dad did”. Possibly I’m being overly critical but that seems like common sense to me. There was nothing truly eye-opening for me personally. I don’t think I would recommend it to someone unless they were really struggling with fatherhood.
