Fifty-Five Fathers: Real Men Share Their Stories and Life Lessons about Their Own Fathers by Jeff Paisley busts the biggest myth about men, men do talk. And they have a lot to say.

Men will read these stories to get clarification, validation, and maybe advice.

Women will read them to see what is going in men's minds and hearts.

Fifty-Five Fathers is your chance to share as fifty-five men from 18 to 80 and various backgrounds reveal hundreds of personal stories about growing up with their dads. Each man's chapter is 2 to 8 pages long.

After Jeff's father passed away, he started asking his male friends about their fathers. Those stories were so memorable, funny, and insightful, that he sought out and recorded the interviews of fifty-five men as they each answered ten questions about their fathers.

Jeff is a recently retired English and Computer high school teacher with thirty years of classroom experience. Fifty-Five Fathers is his opportunity to bring these real men, their memories, and their fathers to you.
