Summary, etc.:
"Men like Bruce Lee and Cesar Chavez, Christopher Reeve and Miles Davis have touched the lives of millions. But at home, to their children, they were not their public personas. They were Dad... In this powerful collection, Joshua David Stein and the editors of Fatherly, the publication for dads, bring together forty first-person narratives--intimate, heartfelt, unvarnished, surprising, and profoundly universal--that shows us not only very different views of figures we thought we knew but also a wholly fresh and poignant idea of what it means to be a father."--Back cover.
