I also appreciate the way Gordon Macdonald shares from the children's perspective, describing how "little things" to adults are many times "big things" to children. He clearly illustrates the impact that our actions have on our children and on the entire family. Macdonald is tender and compassionate yet firm and realistic. He shares his personal experiences (good and bad) during the process of raising both a son and daughter - this is very helpful and insightful.
I highly recommend this book for all fathers and potential fathers. They should read it as soon as possible.
