    Brief, concise, told with an open heart and an open eye to his father s strengths and shortcomings, but ultimately this book is a big thank you from Buscaglia to his father and a way for the reader to see his or her own father in a new and revealing way And for those of us who are fathers it provides some needed perspective on our role and our value This is a book I will turn to again, I am sure.

    Leo Buscaglia is an absolute joy to watch and listen to, and he writes about his father in the same enthusiastic vein Clearly an homage to his father, the book also evokes a different time and era, where relationships within and between families were paramount A time when family histories and stories were part of the oral traditions and handed down over dining room discussions when food and family became one It is a wonderful little book, it would probably mean little or nothing to those bor Leo Buscaglia is an absolute joy to watch and listen to, and he writes about his father in the same enthusiastic vein Clearly an homage to his father, the book also evokes a different time and era, where relationships within and between families were paramount A time when family histories and stories were part of the oral traditions and handed down over dining room discussions when food and family became one It is a wonderful little book, it would probably mean little or nothing to those born before the 1980 s, but would trigger happy memories for those born in and earlier andfamily oriented time But those who are younger, it would be a good example of how life could still be lived, and how fathers could still be wonderful role models
