I'm still reading this book, and liking it very much. I only gave it four stars, because the book was published in 1993, the subject could use some fine tuning. But there's nothing really wrong with it as is. The information is good and useful. This book came highly recommend to me,and I'll stand by that.

Having read this book several times myself, i highly recommend it. I have purchased this book several times to gift to friends and family. The book is well written and it is a very clear in outlining the importance of fathers in our lives. Not only would this book be helpful to males but i think it would also help women, especially single mothers, in understanding the important not only of fathers but of a male's need for other males in his life. No need for a second thought on purchasing this book; do it, you will not regret it.

I had a very good father, but I still wish I had read this when I was in high school or college. Regardless of your age, this is a book that every man needs to read (I was in my forties when I read it for the first time). It puts a man's life in proper perspective. I highly recommend it.

Pittman's review is brilliant, so different from other books on male development. I sent copies to my three adult daughters.
In my view, male pathology is severely harming us all. Pittman describes how that develops and how it can be avoided. He goes way beyond the pettiness of the contemporary sex wars.

For a man who rarely reads, he loved this book. Educational and meaningful. Great gift for a new or existing father.
