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.

This book is packet with evidence based research on children's behaviors as it relates to their fathers involvement. I am a 28 year old male with no kids, heck I don't even have a girlfriend and I still find great value in this book. Engaged all the way to the end. Heard it recommended on the Dave Ramsey show and knew I had to have it. Great, great book for men.

A small reminder, but somewhat pedantic...

Dr Meeker's latest admonition attempts to cover far too much ground. For good fathers, it's a small reminder of the impact we have on the future women of the world. For not-so-good fathers, this may be a good starter. But, to try to put both audiences in one book is a bit of a stretch, even for Dr Meeker.

I also found the narrator to be slightly off-putting and somewhat condescending. In my estimation, the book would have been better served in the voice of Dr. Meeker, and not some disconnected voice
