This is an excellent book for men who find themselves in the new position of being a father figure to children who aren't biologically theirs. The author goes into great detail explaining what these men should and shouldn't do, and includes quite a few true stories to support his evidence. Even though I'm a woman and certainly not a stepfather, I think that the author's suggestions could be applied to several different situations, not just for a new stepdad.

as you attempt to learn about anything important in your current season of life it is wise to prepare as much as possible to succeed. this book gives some Christian and wise advice for those men taking that all important step of attempting to raise another man's child. so far a good book that makes you examine your own personality and characteristics.
