"Fathers and Families presents a lucid, comprehensive, and compelling account of the pervasive 'two-parent advantage, ' the benefits of highly invested and competent paternal care of children. Biller writes in a crisp, narrative style that is unencumbered with psychobabble. Each chapter includes annotated references for more detailed treatment of core topics. This volume offers both practical advice that helps define meaningful nurturing roles for men and a review of what family scholars have elucidated concerning paternal contributions to optimal child development."- Frank Pedersen Research Professor, Individual and Family Studies University of Delaware
