If you're wondering why an open letter like this, would be presented in this review, it's because, that's what Tim Russert's book is. It's a collection of letters, sent to him, by sons and daughters, describing special moments with their Father's. The letters are not, from famous people, but from people like you and me. I didn't know people were sending letters to Tim, or I would have. If I have touched any of you, who have read this review, I recommend you do what I did. You'll feel better, about yourself, and feel proud, that you shared your wonderful Father with the world. Your letter may not be in Tim Russert's book, but I would love to read them, and I'm sure many other people would too. Feel free to contact me, however you can, through Amazon's features. And if my letter touched you, then so will Mr. Russert's book.
The book is broken up into chapters based on various life lessons and each chapter is simply made up of letters written by people sharing their most choice moment with their fathers. Each letter is no longer than a page and the book is so easily read it takes care to go slowly and savor each and every letter so as not to miss out on each particular moment. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you will find yourself saying "Damn Right!" out loud, and you'll inevitably find yourself being humbled by the fathers described in this book, somehow hoping that you will somehow have the opportunity at some time to have anywhere near the wisdom exhibited by these dads in your lifetime.
There are not too many books written that can unequivocably be recommended to anyone who can read but this is one of them. And if I could say that the PERFECT recipient of a gift of this book would be anyone who is about to begin raising children or who is in the act of raising small children, this is it. That way a budding dad will have the ability to soak up a lifetime of lessons and gain the collective "Wisdom of Our Fathers" for his own use. However, ANYONE and EVERYONE should read this book just so you can recognize for yourself what true wisdom looks and sounds like.
