Attling cancer while raising young children along with vivid portraits of his father his two grandfathers and various father figures in his life that explore the changing role of fathers in America This is the work of a master storyteller confronting the most difficult experience of his life and emerging with wisdom and hope The Council of Dads is a touching funny and ultimately deeply moving book on how to live life how the human spirit can respond to adversity and how to deepen and cherish the friendships that enrich our lives. I got this book and enjoyed it I had seen the story on Oprah or some news program and thought it sounded interesting though very sad The father was sick with a rare form of cancer and in the event he died he wanted to have 6 men who could together represent different aspects of his character or personality and advise his daughters I thought it was well written and very touching I especially enjoyed the letters he wrote updating his council of dads throughout the year during his treatment However the book seemed to skip around going from one memory to another how one dad was chosen to the next and I found it a little disjointed I think I would have enjoyed it if it had skipped around less Overall I would recommend it to people who are looking for an interesting book and a great idea whether the parent is sick or healthy it's always a great idea to have other adults in your kids livesparticularly for those kids whose parents may be out of town a lot such as children whose parents are in the military Llama Llama I Love You two grandfathers and various father figures in his life The Temporal Void that explore The Temporal Void the changing role of fathers in America This is Wonder Woman, Volume 1 the work of a master storyteller confronting Wonder Woman, Volume 1 the most difficult experience of his life and emerging with wisdom and hope The Council of Dads is a Perils of a Restless Planet: Scientific Perspectives on Natural Disasters touching funny and ultimately deeply moving book on how The Old Guard, Book One: Opening Fire to live life how His Birthday Gift the human spirit can respond Night Dogs to adversity and how Bridges of Madison County to deepen and cherish Cities of the Red Night the friendships The Odin Mission (Sergeant Jack Tanner, that enrich our lives.

Bruce Feiler ☆ 4 review

Bestselling author Bruce Feiler was a young father when he was diagnosed with cancer He instantly worried what his daughters' lives would be like without him Would they wonder who I was Would they wonder what I thought Would they yearn for my approval my love my voice Three days later he came up with a stirring idea of how he might give them that voice He would reach out to six men from all the passages in his life and ask them to be present in the passages in his daughters' lives And he would call this group The Council of Dads. Won this as a First Reads giveaway I really liked the idea of it man gets cancer in his femur and realizes he may not be there for his 3 year old twins in the future so he calls upon six friends to create a Council of Dads These friends represent the different parts of his self so that they can be his voice should it be needed The book started off really well giving background story about a leg injury when he was 5 years old how he and his wife met the twins' birth his diagnosis Feiler even explores family history eg listening to the audio tapes his grandfather recorded in the 12 years leading up to his suicide in 1983 tapes which the author had heretofore avoided He even adds periodic letters to his family and friends over the year of his treatment chronicling his experience and the effect on him and his family Up until about one third way to one half way point it was all very interesting and the author's honesty and humor were endearingEven when he began introducing his Council I enjoyed it But a couple of things bothered me First because of the way he interweaves story about what was currently going on in terms of his treatment history letters to his family and friends and introducing his Council we don't meet the last guy until he's already all the way through his treatment and been given the all clear That timing was off putting for me Second by the middle of the book the writing style started to feel a little too Mitch Albom for me kind of sappy and offering cliche life lessons There was also a feeling of unreality to the book in that Feiler was not your average Joe who got cancer and his friends were not average either one has multiple Emmys one offered commentary alongside Bob Costas at the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics all but one has traveled the world extensively etc Let me be clear I am in no way trying to minimize what the author went through; it was horrific However when I got the book I was hoping to read about how someone like me would struggle with such a diagnosis Not that there is not struggle in this book; there is very clearly physical struggle through chemotherapy and surgery then chemo and physical therapy there is struggle with fears and struggle with trying to protect a family from the chaos that surrounds potentially terminal illness But there were many ways in which Feiler did not have to struggle He was very well connected and was able to see the best doctor in the country for his cancer Money was not an issue for him and his family; he was able to devote his time and energy to fighting his disease for a year without having to worry about losing the house I would have rather read the story of some ordinary guy who never wrote a book before or at least someone who doesn't have his own Wikipedia page who doesn't have an extensive and well connected support system for whom money is an issue and who isn't always able to keep his sense of humor ie someone I could relate to someone realAll in all this is a good book I liked it but it was not amazing to me I recognize that most of my criticisms of it tell about me as much as about the book so I recommend you read it and make your own decision You may find it inspiring
