Donald Miller's dad left when he was very young. From that point onwards, Donald felt different. Different from the other boys in his class; different from the other boys at camp. He discovered that growing up without a father to show him the ropes is hard work. Dads have crucial wisdom to impart to their sons, but without one, life seems a whole lot harder. With honest humour and raw self-revelation, bestselling author Donald Miller talks about growing up without a father and discusses the issues that befall the 'fatherless generation'. Miller shares his journey from self-pity and brokenness to hope and strength, providing guidance for the growing numbers of young adults floundering in an age with fewer and fewer positive domestic male role models. This amusing, but ultimately inspiring memoir provides encouragement for both men and women who've grown up with absent fathers, as well as the wives, girlfriends and friends of those with a similar story.
