Editorial Reviews


"Having cycled across the country more than 85 times, including Route 66 dozens of times, I know firsthand the challenges David encountered. Riding 100+ miles a day for three weeks takes a level of commitment and perseverance few possess. I admire his Dads Honor Ride accomplishment and more importantly, the commitment he brings to bridging the gap for those growing up without dads." --Lon Haldeman, Ultramarathon Cyclist, 8 time transcontinental record holder, and PAC Tour co-owner

"Whether it was in his role as founder of the Illinois Fatherhood Initiative or as a father himself of five great children, David understands the critical importance of the role fathers play in the lives of the young. The journeys he has taken and shares in this book, both as a community leader and on his bicycle across America, offer pertinent lessons about the rich experiences that dads can provide to their kids when they are involved. Fathers from all backgrounds will find great comfort in the simple wisdom David provides in this outstanding read. Bravo!" --David D. Hiller, President and CEO, Robert R. McCormick Foundation

"Growing up without a father in the home after age 12, it has been a life-long passion of mine to help facilitate healthy, thriving families. David Hirsch shares the same passion, and has devoted the last 20 years to recognizing and applauding men of character who have chosen to lead by example and be the pillars of their homes and communities. He is a devoted husband and father with a love of adventure, and passed that love down to his five children who are now young, successful adults; precisely what Fatherhood is all about." --Mike Singletary, former Chicago Bear/NFL Hall of Fame
