Publisher's Summary

Pediatrician and best-selling author Meg Meeker has a message: stop undervaluing fatherhood.

We live in a culture that hails motherhood as a woman's crowning achievement yet defines men first and foremost by their professional accomplishments, treating fatherhood as almost incidental - a bonus. But from her years spent as a pediatrician listening to children's needs and fears, Dr. Meeker understands just how crucial a father's role is.

Hero is a powerful affirmation of fatherhood that shows men how being a strong, active father can be their greatest triumph.

    "EVERY MAN NEEDS THIS"

    This book is packet with evidence based research on children's behaviors as it relates to their fathers involvement. I am a 28 year old male with no kids, heck I don't even have a girlfriend and I still find great value in this book. Engaged all the way to the end. Heard it recommended on the Dave Ramsey show and knew I had to have it. Great, great book for men.

    "Father of 2 kids."

    This book gave me hope that I have what it takes to be a great father/hero. In the past I had believed that some men were good fathers and some weren't. I believed this wasn't something I could have a big affect on, but I am glad that I was wrong. Thank you for this book Dr. Meg it has helped me tremendously.

    "A really great book"

    Fantastic book; she brings years of experience and insight providing practical strategies for dads. Extremely refreshing, an excellent counter to today's typical view of dads.

    "Father, you either are, or you must become a hero for your children, there is no other option."

    I did like the way MD, Meg Meeker was able to further cement the role of fathers and the responsibility fathers have by considering both facts why fathers should feel that responsibility, that of irreplaceable role of fatherhood, but also the very important correlation between father and The God.

    I would recommend this book specifically to all fathers, but also to mothers who need to better understand the role and responsibility of fathers.

    I did listen this book with a goal of better understanding the role that fathers should play with their children. I was fortunate to read this book and I am sure it will help me reach my goal of becoming a better father and build a better and healthier family!!

    "Challenging... in a good way."

    Even... no, especially if you are a good father this book will challenge you. It will also tug at your deepest heartyest heart strings.

    "A small reminder, but somewhat pedantic..."

    Dr Meeker's latest admonition attempts to cover far too much ground. For good fathers, it's a small reminder of the impact we have on the future women of the world. For not-so-good fathers, this may be a good starter. But, to try to put both audiences in one book is a bit of a stretch, even for Dr Meeker.

    I also found the narrator to be slightly off-putting and somewhat condescending. In my estimation, the book would have been better served in the voice of Dr. Meeker, and not some disconnected voice

    "Practical"

    Great book on fatherhood. I especially enjoyed the practical application parts. Very nice to have specific "dos".
