When Allen Appel asked hundreds of sons, young and old, to recall the most memorable and valuable words their fathers told them, there came an outpouring of things practical and indispensable, some familiar, many surprising.
From Father to Son celebrates the trials and satisfactions of manhood and captures dads’ uncanny knack for seeing ahead. It is a useful gift any man can give proudly, perhaps remembering something his own father said. Advice like: “A computer is a tool, just like a hammer;” “The sun always comes up the next day;” and “Just because it looks good on the Internet doesn’t mean it’s going to look good when it comes in the mail.”
|I am a sucker for anything sentimental when it comes to gift giving. It is known in my family that I strive for happy tears when the wrapping comes off and the gift giver see the gift. From Father to Son: Wisdom for the Next Generation is a perfect gift for Father's Day and it is sure to bring many happy tears to both father and son. Father's Day is about becoming a father and this book is a perfect gift for a father to give to his son to make it special for both. It is also good for any other reason you want to celebrate your son, as well. There are so many great pages of great advice within this book. You can allow the book to say the things that may be hard to say or the things that are hard to articulate. You can make notes on the pages or write your own notes of thanks or advice within the text or on blank pages provided, which allows you to personalize it even further. Plus, you get to sign the front cover to make it special for your son. I love that there are vintage black and white drawings to accompany the advice and wisdom. It is an amazing gift that any son would love.|
