What are good models for fathers? Jarema (director, Mercy Ctr. for Healing the Whole Person, Colorado Springs) selects five: elder, companion, champion, mystic, and mentor. And on the negative side, he presents five unhealthy fathering styles: dictator, trickster, competitor, magician, and villain. He defines each style clearly, using engrossing descriptions from sons, whose portraits of their fathers vary from heartwarming to chilling. Jarema then uses book and film characters as examples of the styles he describes. The final section of the book deals with working through whatever father-son relationship already exists and developing a healthy style of one's own. With this book, Jarema has fulfilled the goal of helping men improve their fathering skills in easy-to-understand language. Recommended.?Linda Beck, Indian Valley P.L., Telford, Pa.
