When you look at the title of this book-and the cover with its picture of clouds, you may suspect that this is one of those far-out religious books. No, it isn't. It is spiritual, but not by the text. The message may have religious overtones-if you're religious. The powerful value of this unassuming little book is in the heart and mind of the reader.
This volume is a collection of short stories from the author and a number of other people, talking about their fathers, their experiences, and the impact their fathers had on their lives. You may come close to tears a few times as you feel what the authors are writing about. If your reading experience is anything like mine was, you'll gain a fresh, new understanding of your father's influence on who you are today.
The stories are organized by category in the book: Attitude, Integrity, Memories, Determination, Compassion, Wisdom, Inspiration, Character, Nature, and Courage. Investing a few minutes with this book will pay dividends for years to come. My wife noticed a significant change in my demeanor right away.
If your father has passed, refresh the memories with this book as the key. If your father is still alive, expect to gain insights that will draw you closer to the special man in your life. Recommended for people who have lost their father, as well as for today's father who wants to know how Dad managed to do such a fine job of raising you. Today's fathers will learn lessons from this book that will empower you to be the kind of father your children want you to be.
