Prior to Father and Child Reunion, Dr. Warren Farrell wrote the award-winning international bestsellers "Why Men Are The Way They Are" and "The Myth of Male Power," and "Women Can’t Hear What Men Don’t Say" – a Book-of-the-Month Club selection. He is on the boards of numerous fathers’ organizations and is the only man in the US ever elected three times to the Board of Directors of the National Organization for Women (NOW) in New York City. He has appeared repeatedly on Oprah, Donahue, CNN, on PBS and 20/20 specials, and often written for the New York Times and USA Today. The Financial Times has chosen him as one of the world’s 100 most-innovative Thought Leaders.From Library Journal:
Like his earlier Women Can't Hear What Men Don't Say, Farrell's latest book will evoke strong responses with its polemically argued thesis: that fathers are often missing from the family equation and that this is to the detriment of both children and mothers. His research shows, for instance, that children with involved fathers score better on academic and social competence measures as well as on physical and psychological health tests. Issues like child support, visitation, and the female domination of legal proceedings are critiqued and shown to be frequently unfair to men. Unfortunately, Farrell's intensely pro-male tone pits men against women and obscures otherwise thought-provoking comments. In addition, the style is often overly dramatic, e.g., the author asserts that the denial of father-time is "one of the most documentable forms of child abuse." For a positive, supportive title, try Divorced Dad's Survival Book: How To Stay Connected with Your Kids (Perseus, 2000. reprint). For only the largest public and academic libraries. Douglas C.
