5 out of 5 starsOne of the Best Books on Father Child Relationships, February 1, 2008
By Joel Bonvicini - See all my reviews

I recently met Dr.Warren Farrell, who was speaking on our behalf, Men and Women Against Discrimination of West Virginia, as we were trying to pass a Shared Parenting Bill into the WV House. www.mawadwv.org

Dr. Farrell has disarmed this sensitive topic and shown plainly how important shared parenting is for any child and the benefits of a father in a child life, at any age or time. If you you are single, married or divorced, this book will show you how important a father is to a child's development is almost every aspect of life.

You will not be dissappointed.

5.0 out of 5 starsBring Back The Fathers: Kids Need Dads , December 5, 2000
By Bought Copies for My Three Daughters (Vienna, Virginia USA)

I had the privilege of reading a pre-publication copy of this book and I can't wait until January to talk about it. Warren Farrell has written many books about how to bring men and women together by ending gender warfare but this time he shows how the children are damaged by the warfare and demonstrates the need for all of us to work together to bring fathers back into the lives of children. Whether it is the runaway Dad who needs to be coaxed back into fatherhood or the disconnected Dad who is too busy for the kids or the pushed-away Dad who has been victimized by an unfairly restrictive custody order, Farrell marshalls the proof that Dads are needed for the well-being of their children and for the future of our society. Based on thirteen years of intensive research, Farrell presents mountains of information on the importance of Dads, all of it cross-referenced to the original sources and scientific studies. As a true gender equality advocate (three time member of the N.Y. National Organization for Women Board of Directors and the leader of gender equality training workshops for thousands of men and women), Farrell demonstrates the benefits of increased father involvement for women, for children and for the men themselves. Everybody gains from helping men to be good Dads and from giving them the opportunity to do so. Read More

5.0 out of 5 starsExcellent Ballance , September 15, 2005
By Grayson Walker "AGW" (South Florida) - See all my reviews

I've known Warren for quite a few years, and I have always found his work to be well written and worthwhile. For masculinist, Warren is very even handed and fair in his treatment of a subject that invited polemics. He's a great guy, and I look forward to more of his work. This is highly recommended for the Non-Custodial and the Custodial parent.

5.0 out of 5 starsA must read for every father, mother and ex-wife! , January 27, 2001
Lindsay Kenny (San Rafael, CA) - See all my reviews

This is the fourth book of Dr. Farrell's that I've read and loved. "Father and Child Reunion", in my opinion, is his best and arguably his most important. From the introduction to the last page, it's full of eye opening revelations and fascinating stories about the incredible influence and importance of fathers to our children. As a woman, I've always taken for granted that mothers were the most "essential" parent... READ MORE

5.0 out of 5 starsWarren Farrel does it again , August 17, 2001
By David Wilson (Massachusetts) - See all my reviews

Dr. Farrell has done it again. He has been able to put into writing what I, and many other men, have known but have not had an outlet to express. That men are victims of overwhelming gender discrimination. And, in this book, he clearly documents how it's hurting both our children and our society. To paraphrase Harry Trumen, you can't keep one group of people in the gutter with out staying there yourself. Gender discrimination against men has kept, and will continue to keep, all of us in the gutter until we recognize it and stop it. Now is the time to stop it. Let's remove the road blocks to fathers getting custody of their children, to men staying home to raise the kids, to making sure we have more male teachers at the elementry school level, to our recognition that men are equally the victims of domestic violence, etc. My hat is off to Dr. Farrell for another excellent job well done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!! , August 20, 2002
By tnhuskerfan "tnhuskerfan" (Nashville, TN) - See all my reviews

I wish...the Davidson County Juvenile Court would read this. This author is right on target about how non custodial fathers always get the shaft. This should be required reading for every family court judge and lawmaker.

5.0 out of 5 starsReturn of the Lost Fathers , January 14, 2001
Jed Diamond "The Men's Maven" (Willits, Ca. United States) - See all my reviews

I am a psychotherapist who has been helping people deal with drug and alcohol problems, family violence, and depression for the last 35 years. I believe that the key factor underlying these problems and many others is the lack of good fathering in families today.

Dr. Farrell helps us understand why the absentee father has become the norm in our society today. He also shows us the devastating results when fathers are not present to assist in the raising of their children. Finally, he gives us solutions that will work in helping to return fathers to the children who need them.

To be sure, I've worked with a few fathers over the years who are so damaged themselves, they should not be with their children. However, these are the rare exceptions. Many, many more fathers are caring, competent, and compassionate.

If you are a father, a mother, a son, or a daughter, do yourself a favor and buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 starsA Fanstastic Book , January 14, 2001
By "doug3034" (Maryland) - See all my reviews

This book is fantastic!! Warren Farrell is a masterful writer. He has a wonderful way of helping the reader perceive everyday events from a new perspective. For example, he makes the point beautifully that as men become more involved in the lives of their children, they need to be sensitive to the fact that some women may feel insecure, just as some men may have felt insecure about women entering the workplace. The way he discusses the "my body, my choice" reasoning concerning reproductive rights is another example of his skillful ability to help us reassess commonly held beliefs from a different perspective. Reading Dr. Farrell is always a thought-provoking and enlightening experience.
