This book is a gift of advice to be given and received-a treasury of simple, powerful ideas that have transmitted the experience of generations.

It began when Allen Appel asked hundreds of sons, young and old, to recall the most memorable and valuable words their fathers told them. There came an outpouring of things practical and indispensable-some familiar, many surprising-that you now hold in your hand.

From Father to Son celebrates the trials and satisfactions of manhood, and captures dads' uncanny knack for seeing ahead. It is a useful gift any man can give proudly, perhaps remembering-and maybe even recording in it-something his own father said.
