Ok, not great...
Common sense and old school values with few facts
Mainly this book reads as a guide to not being a completely terrible father. Some big things brought up by this book are common sense items like "you should hug your daughter", "if someone sexually assaults your daughter, you should get mad at the person that did it".
Then it gets into the antiquated overbearing suggestions such as purity rings, and nightly reminding her to save herself for her wedding night.
There were a few interesting facts peppering the advice that I can't see being useful to many fathers. I would suggest finding a different book.
