Good groundwork in identifying the "approval" addiction. It stems from equating Love with Approval and visa versa. It also identifies it as a root of anger and frustration in dealing with others, especially family members and in child rearing. Part of the "perfection" syndrome as it affects men especially. McGlasson also reveals how it affects men who grew up under this type of covering in their parenting. He does direct the reader to God for answers and in having a relationship with Jesus Christ as the only healer of this negative root wound which is what I liked most. However, I found it a bit empty in actual steps of healing. While it identifies clearly the issues, other than a prayer at the end of a chapter, there are no illustrations of the recovery process which might be helpful to someone needing to walk out being healed of the father wound. Although it is true, through prayer and supplication with thanksgiving it is the Holy Spirit that leads, guides, directs and teaches the individual towards the will of the Father for their own life. Perhaps it was left out as to not confine the reader to particular steps, other than accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior and prayer.
