Publisher's Summary

Essential Wisdom for a Life Well Lived
At once spiritual and practical, Letters to My Son has been beloved by listeners from all walks of life, including single mothers seeking guidance in raising a son, fathers looking to share a voice of clarity about life's most important issues, and young men wanting an intelligent, sensitive, and streetwise companion on the journey toward a worthy manhood. In this 20th anniversary edition, Kent Nerburn adds to his classic reflections on love, marriage, travel, money and wealth, tragedy and suffering, spirituality, sex, and the true meaning of strength, with new chapters on sexual identity and the difficulty of moving on (from relationships, homes, and stages of life).
Unique in its profound simplicity and timeless insight, Letters to My Son is a book to savor, and a gift to give to anyone looking for clear and gentle guidance on the big issues in life.

beautiful

the narration was so powerful, and his son captures you in the knowledge and loving advice being expressed. .making you feel like you feel as the way he must have felt when reading the letters...and that causes me to greatly respect kent his father and the love and compassion he has cultivated and chosen to share over his time here.

the messages i received were too many to keep listening at times and so i had to take pause and reflect quite a bit on this. i spent a month or little more on this one. it enriched me so much and yet i know i will learn just as much new messages when i listen to it a second time.

my father was always there physically but he was not there for me growing up. and so i need to express my thanks to kent and his son for helping me to bridge an important gap that has been left somewhere in my heart..i knew it was there i just didnt realize how deep it was always. it is okay though. and kents words were so powerful for me. i do long for a past of kinship and teaching from a loving father and though i was failed that i am happy still for who i am and am grateful for many things. things like this collection of letters from a man to his son.

it makes me realize that i am only missing what i think i am missing and once i find it it is no longer missing really..if even it came to me in an unexpected way or form. and then too i can share it when the time is right.

thankyou to the Nerburns for this orchestra of beauty kindness compassion wisdom and knowledge. thankyou for the tears of awe and happiness and compassion i wept while listening to the son narrate his fathers gift of heart .
