Reviews - What do customers think about Chicken Soup for the Father's Soul: 101 Stories to Open the Hearts and Rekindle the Spirits of Fathers (Chicken Soup for the Soul)?
Remembering Aug 22, 2006
This bookis great for any son or father to read and make them realize why their sons or fathers did things they did and maybe still do. It will have you smiling, laughing, and also crying. I have many Chicken Soup books and I rate this a a tie with The Veterans Soul book. Read it and enjoy.
Sappy and overly religious Jan 30, 2005
An earlier reviewer was correct: This is story after story about immature fathers who come to the "big realization" that they actually need to be good fathers. And we're supposed to find this inspiring?
In addition, perfectly good stories are ruined by bizarre, out-of-the-blue religious non sequiturs such as "God was remodeling my son." Huh? As if the father has nothing to do with helping his son. One guy prays to God that his son will catch a fish. Yeah, people are starving in Africa, but God's going to make sure this kid catches a fish. Uh huh.
In another case, a father "asked the Lord to help back off a little" when a son is benched. Does he ask the Lord to help him go to the bathroom, too? Sheesh. There's something pathetic about fathers who take no responsibility for their actions--whether admirable actions or immature actions.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised about the pervavise religious content when authors include evangelists James Robinson and Chuck Swindoll.
If you want to hear God mentioned every 3 pages and want to read about immature fathers, this is the sappy book for you.
Wonderful reading Jul 11, 2002
I picked up "Chicken Soup for the Father's Soul" in an airport bookshop as I departed for a four-day business trip. At the time I traveled very frequently, and I had planned to read a story only occasionally, saving them for those times when my thoughts wandered upon my two sons at home and refused to be redirected elsewhere. However, I found myself reading story after story, and by the time I had returned home, I had finished the book and was giving some of the stories a second read.
In the enclosed quarters of an airplane cabin, I found myself unsuccessfully struggling to contain my laughter, nonchalantly wiping tears from my eyes, and silently reflecting upon my own relationships as father and son.
Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy sometime. These stories will move you.

Enjoyable reading; great to read aloud to your husband Feb 16, 2002
I enjoyed the stories in Chicken Soup for the Father's Soul. Some make you laugh and some come pretty close to making you cry. I bought the book because I enjoy reading out loud to my husband and though it's not a book he would buy for himself, I thought it was one he would like. He did. If you are looking for a "feel good" book for the dad in your life, you can't go wrong with this book. Another great book for dads is 15 Reasons I Love My Dad. It's a fill-in-the-blank book that you fill with loving words and pictures. With Father's Day just around the corner, both of these books are guaranteed to please.
Encouragement for fathers of all ages Jul 3, 2001
I decided to buy my oldest son a copy of "Chicken Soup for the Father's Soul" for Fathers Day. I like to find thoughtful gifts for my children...the amount of money that I spend on a gift is not as important as the thought behind it. I was pleased with the variety of the short stories in the book. I think a busy man like my son is much more likely to read a couple of short stories at a time, and I like to think he would be getting some positive encouragement at the same time. He is a great father, and I love him very much.
