Compelling stories of fatherhood from the popular NPR radioshow

From the popular radio series This I Believe comes thistouching and thought-provoking compilation of original essays onone of the most fundamental of human relationships-fatherhood. Itis a relationship filled with joy and heartbreak, love and anger,lessons learned, and opportunities missed.

The stories in this collection are engaging and meaningful. Someare reverential and loving; some are sad and clouded by yearning,loss, and regret: You'll read reflections from expectant and newdads, full of optimism, as well as from longtime parents who,through the distance of time, are able to reflect on theirsuccesses and failures as fathers.

We also hear from children (some young and some well intoadulthood) writing about their fathers. They honestly and openlyintroduce us to the men who shaped them, sometimes in surprisingways. They talk about the fathers they want to emulate, themistakes they hope to avoid repeating, and the wisdom they realizedthey've gained.

This I Believe: On Fatherhood offers a compellingportrait of the diverse range of experiences and beliefs related tothe father-child relationship. With personal insights andinspiration, this collection makes a wonderful gift for long-timefathers, new fathers, and fathers-to-be.
