Item description for Why a Son Needs a Dad: 100 Reasons by Gregory E. Lang & Janet Lankford-Moran...

"A son needs a dad who knows how to have fun," Gregory Lang begins this testimony to the important roles fathers play in their sons' lives. Increasingly in today's world, young boys are being raised either without a father or by fathers who have very little involvement in their sons' upbringing. A boy needs a dad to teach him how things work, how to talk with girls, and how to tie a tie. He also needs a father who is willing to make sacrifices, one who shows him that love is unselfish and pulls him back when he is headed in the wrong direction. These and more than ninety other things are what a boy must learn about becoming a man. The result is a sequel to the New York Times bestseller Why a Daughter Needs a Dad.

The relationship between father and son is both simple and complex. Simple in that a father remembers the things he learned as a boy and passes them on to his sons. Complex in that it is filled with quiet hugs and laughter, the comfort of familiarity and the adventure of discovery, and the creation of a history from which they both may draw strength and wisdom.

Today Gregory Lang remembers his dad as someone he worshiped as a child, disfavored as a teenager, and now deeply admires. "On my mantle, next to a high school portrait of my mom and amid many photographs of my daughter," he writes, "sits a picture of my dad and me our front yard. He is squatting down, his arms wrapped around me as I stand between his knees. Sometimes I stand before this mantle and look at those photographs and realize how blessed I am." Now that he is a father himself, Lang realizes that being a dad is the greatest challenge and reward a man can have.

Reviews - What do customers think about Why a Son Needs a Dad: 100 Reasons?

its wonderful  Aug 27, 2008
this book is awesome. my husband loved it. it was shipped fast and in great condition....
Nice sentiments, but not worth much as a book  Jun 16, 2008
The book is nice, but not very deep - it's like getting 100 father's day cards in one book.

Worse, if you read it straight through (it took my wife and I about 15 minutes to read the entire book), you will notice that it starts repeating the same thoughts over again, in order to get to 100 (e.g., " A Son Needs A Dad .. who knows how to have fun ... [and then later] who can be playful and silly"). I wouldn't buy it again.

If you're looking for pithy things to teach your children, I thought Life's Little Instruction Book had more interesting things to say.
Say it now....  Jan 19, 2007
I gave this book to my dad for Christmas. He had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. The book was a way of saying all those things I wanted to say, but didn't.
Wonderful Book!  Jan 9, 2007
An excellent book for us all to remember why we love our children so much and how we shape their lives. The lump in my throat got bigger and bigger........
Special book for a special person  Oct 13, 2006
I bought this book for my father to give to him after his cancer surgery. I'm an adult son who has a very close relationship with my father but don't live so close. This was a great way for him to have something to remind him of that bond any time.

Very applicable to any son/dad relationship with the variety of photos and reasons. Everyone will find that special reason the rings true for them.
