Explanation of the Book:

"Most men spend very little time pondering the question, Am I doing the right things to become a great dad? This book addresses this most important question in a profound way. It's filled with personal stories, focused on powerful principles, and is written for real people. We all know how easy it is, biologically, to become a father. What we often don't realize is that it takes work, dedication, and learned skills to become a dad, especially a great dad." - From the foreword by Jack Canfield, Co-Creator, #1 New York Times best selling series Chicken Soup for the Soul (r) In How to Be a Great Dad, you will learn: The 15-day Great Dad Challenge that transforms fathers into dads. Why dads matter way more than you may think. The lifelong impact fathers have on their children. The three simple and strategic skills to great dad success that all dads can master. Why bad or absent dads can land kids in prison. How to become the father you wish you'd had. Why "father nurture" is as important as "mother nurture." Why saying "I'm proud of you" makes all the difference. Why "I'll love you no matter what" means so much to your kids. Why a hug is not "just a hug" when it comes from Dad. How to build your kids' self-esteem. How to give what you may not have received. A doable process to overcome hurts or limitations from the past. Neil Chethik, executive director of The Carnegie Center, writes, "Keith Zafren is an inspiring guide on this adventure into the heart of fathering. Read this book. It will make you a better dad, and it may even help you forgive your own father for the mistakes he inevitably made." Neil Chethik Executive Director, The Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning Author, FatherLoss and VoiceMale "WOW!!! 'Healing a Father Wound' was by far the most impactful and emotional section of any book I have ever read. I can't even describe how deeply this teaching affected me. The feeling of 'choked up' stayed throughout reading the section, and keeps coming back even now. I realized clearly how my own father wound has affected my entire life, and still does to this day. It also made me realize how the healing process is a daily reward to me and my boys, and so worth the effort. My heart was smiling while my eyes filled with tears. Awesome book!"

Explanation of the Book:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • ONE OF ESSENCE’S 50 MOST IMPACTFUL BLACK BOOKS OF THE PAST 50 YEARS In this iconic memoir of his early days, Barack Obama “guides us straight to the intersection of the most serious questions of identity, class, and race” (The Washington Post Book World). “Quite extraordinary.”—Toni Morrison In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father—a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man—has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey—first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother’s family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where he meets the African side of his family, confronts the bitter truth of his father’s life, and at last reconciles his divided inheritance. Praise for Dreams from My Father “Beautifully crafted . . . moving and candid . . . This book belongs on the shelf beside works like James McBride’s The Color of Water and Gregory Howard Williams’s Life on the Color Line as a tale of living astride America’s racial categories.”—Scott Turow “Provocative . . . Persuasively describes the phenomenon of belonging to two different worlds, and thus belonging to neither.”—The New York Times Book Review “Obama’s writing is incisive yet forgiving. This is a book worth savoring.”—Alex Kotlowitz, author of There Are No Children Here “One of the most powerful books of self-discovery I’ve ever read, all the more so for its illuminating insights into the problems not only of race, class, and color, but of culture and ethnicity. It is also beautifully written, skillfully layered, and paced like a good novel.”—Charlayne Hunter-Gault, author of In My Place “Dreams from My Father is an exquisite, sensitive study of this wonderful young author’s journey into adulthood, his search for community and his place in it, his quest for an understanding of his roots, and his discovery of the poetry of human life. Perceptive and wise, this book will tell you something about yourself whether you are black or white.”—Marian Wright Edelman

Explanation of the Book:

It’s never too late to be a better father Jim Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, is an expert in fatherhood—in part because his own "fathers" failed him so badly. His biological dad was an alcoholic. His stepfather deserted him. His foster father accused Jim of trying to kill him. All were out of Jim's life by the time he turned 13. Isn’t it odd—and reminiscent of the hand of God—that the director of the leading organization on family turned out to be a guy whose own background as a kid and son were pretty messed up? Or could it be that successful parenting is discovered not in the perfect, peaceful household but in the midst of battles and messy situations, where God must constantly be called to the scene? That is the mystery unraveled in this book. Using his own expertise, humor, and inexhaustible wealth of stories, Jim will show you that God can make you a good dad, a great dad, in spite of the way you’ve grown up and in spite of the mistakes you’ve made. Maybe even because of them. It’s not about becoming a perfect father. It’s about trying to become a better father, each and every day. It's about building relationships with your children through love, grace, patience, and fun—and helping them grow into the men and women they’re meant to be.

Explanation of the Book:

This is the story of a successful father describing his approach to parenting, making us think and consider what will make our children happy and successful individuals. Ravi Mahendra is a father of three young girls and he is passionate about parenting. He has personally gone on a journey of learning and developing the relationship between him and his daughters. Ravi delights in seeing his children become bigger and better individuals. Ravi believes passionately that parenting is about dedication and focus. The book is based on the principle that you are the best teacher for your children; you can pass on your knowledge and experience to help to support the best development of your child. The parent is the figure of authority, with immense responsibility for decisions regarding the children. This book draws out the benefits of really pro-actively grasping the responsibility and making the decisions rather than running with the flow. The real strength of this book lies with the thought process on determining priorities, characteristics and values that will produce successful children. It will inspire you to look at your parenting approach with a fresh set of eyes and help you to succeed on your chosen path. The book uses well-chosen examples from the world of business, politics and historical figures to really illustrate what success means and what needs to be done to achieve it. Ravi uses connection of business ideas and stories with parenting to bring a fresh perspective on children's upbringing. . The book is drawing interesting connection from management and business theories to really focus on children leading successful lives. At a practical level, the book offers a vast array of examples on managing the prosaic day-to-day issues. Unless the practical challenges are resolved, it becomes very difficult to manage the more advanced parenting questions. Ravi does a great job in visualising the impact of our actions now on the children in the future. Ravi Mahendra lives with his three daughters in London. His career spans many areas: he has built a renowned business school in his native Sri Lanka, written business columns for newspapers and is a prize-winning Qualified Accountant with an MBA. Ravi is currently working as Global Finance leader in a large insurance organisation and he is also a regular blogger on LinkedIn. His aim is to live life to the fullest and to raise his children as successful and content individuals.

Explanation of the Book:

Albert Einstein, the creator of both the Special and General Theories of Relativity, spent his golden years in search of the answer to the question; what is the nature of everything? The "Unified Field Theory" represents the quest to discover how everything is related in the universe; "Love Is the Nature of Existence" answers that question. The Jew determines how the rest of nature behaves; that includes you, your neighbor across the street, every molecule, as well as every atom. . Once anybody realizes this truth, he also becomes acquainted with the fact that he is no different from anything else; which would necessarily include the stars in the sky, not to mention the galaxies that spin around one another within the furthest dimensions of space. Be here, be now, believe in Love; nothing in existence is, can, or ever will be, beyond, behind, or outside, the truth. In other words, when there is no relativity, there can be no beginning or end within the confines of the Truth. Time, hence, can neither progress nor recede, but remains static, constant. Those who have achieved Self-realization describe the experience as living in the moment. Once it is recognized that time is non-existent, then it can be concluded that space cannot exist also; the elimination of time eradicates the possibility of space; then what is left? The answer is nothing; or nothingness, or, as He is more commonly referred to, God. Norman Mailer, the highly regarded novelist, journalist, playwright, among numerous other things, once described evil as God in exile; his description is absolutely one hundred percent correct. The Jew represents God's love, the way He connects with mankind. Man can choose to ignore, disregard, defame, defile, or eliminate the possibility of him having the chance to make an impression on the lives of others; on the other hand, The Lord, in all His wisdom, for the benefit of mankind, can extract him from the human population on Earth; either way, evil will then rule, and man will ruin himself as a consequence. Power is derived through understanding; the possibilities for humanity are now endless; that which mankind once described as indecipherable, ethereal, the unfathomable unknown, is no longer a mystery.
