Howard Books Father Fiction: Chapters for a Fatherless Generation

Growing up, Donald Miller wished Bill Cosby was his father. Raised by his mother, Donald felt the painful lack of a father figure - and he has transformed his pain into a passion for helping others find mentors. His memoir addresses fatherless men, enlightens parents, and helps readers understand the need for strong role models.

With his vivid storytelling and introspection, Donald takes readers through his coming of age with key topics like falling in love, authority issues, generational interaction, work ethic, staying with the people we love, the life-changing impact of finding the right person for you, and following your dreams. A memoir with a message, this book calls readers to envision how their own personal paincan be transformed into the "authority of empathy," as they share what they know with someone who needs a guiding hand. Hardcover.

I have read some of Donald Miller's books and have enjoyed them and gotten many things from his other books. It was interesting to read his perspective on growing up without a father, but I think some of his ideas of how to deal with some of these things that boys without fathers are warped and not how things should be handled.

Very good read as expected from Donald Miller. Just wish the fine print "formerly published as To Own A Dragon" had been included in the ad, since I had already read this book under the original title.
