Synopsis: Searching for Dad steps inside the mind, heart and soul of a boy without a father. Recognizing the power emotional and psychological side effects of growing up fatherless will help absentee fathers, single mothers and sons who survived a fatherless childhood understand and cope. Byron Ricks shares his story about the challenges he faced, the lessons he learned, and the man he became. He writes for fathers who do not realize the full impact their absence can have, for mothers wanting to do the best for their sons but not sure what that is, and for men who feel empty and unattached and are not sure why. Ultimately, Searching for Dad is a book of hope, filled with illustrations about nine side effects and how fathers, mothers, and sons can forestall, minimize and even reverse. Growing up fatherless may be the condition; healing is the possibility.
About the Author: Byron Ricks, MA, is an expert in human behavior, and a certified corporate trainer, facilitator, and professional speaker who specializes in helping people increase their levels of self-understanding and workplace performance. He is also the author of a new book, Searching for Dad (Brown Books, 2008). Ricks grew up on the mean streets of West Side Chicago without a father, but with many extended family members and adults in his life-including a strong mother and a range of wonderfully eccentric uncles, aunts, and kindly neighbors. By sharing his stories about the challenges he faced as a fatherless child, the lessons he learned, and the man he has become, Ricks hopes to help fatherless young men become well-rounded adults, inspire absentee fathers to take responsibility for their actions, and encourage single mothers to do what is best for their sons.
