Very, very good book!

I used this book as the primary text for a class on Fatherhood at the University of Utah. It is very easy to read and useful. I've recommended it to others and passed it on and they agree. It has language that is easy to understand and thus works well as a text for University study or as a self-improvement advice book. His lists of ideas and recommendations are important. I really hope that this book is not removed from print as I have heard it may be.


I have read many books on the topic and this seems to talk directly to me. No mushy stuff, directly to the point. I also like the fact that it really challenges fathers to take more active role as everyday parent with children.

Overlong, but good for trade

Pruett's attempt at expanding what could have been a chapter in an academic text into a self-help book for the masses is admirable. Yes, I think fathers and fathers-in-waiting should skim the book. Some sloppy work: doesn't the author know the difference between Penn and Penn State? But overall, makes a good case, if you can excuse the gratuitous fawning over "single mothers." The "as you'll read in the next chapter" stuff was annoying.

Finally an explination of many of our childrens problems!

In this book,so much can be learned about why our children end up doing the things they do, and having the self identity problems they have. I now see that fathers have a connection with their children, not only socially, but in a much deeper sence. This is a must read for all fathers!

Superb Book

Dr. Pruett deals with the essential need for fathering in a warm, thoughtful, easily readable form. A must read for all parents.
