good life tools!

Would you consider the audio edition of Fathered By God to be better than the print version?

as a man that didn't have a dad,and turns to god ,but needs understanding on how to move forward. this was a push or a leap that helped me get over the gap holding me back in life!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fathered By God?

in the beginning with the bears, i didn't get it. but by the end it laid the footsteps!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

i was moved to find out what stage i am in and what stage i missed so i could transfer into the next stage correctly.

A Multiple Must Listen

This is one of those books, that every-time i listen to it... it hits me in a whole new way. I love that John narrates his own books... for me, it gives me the personality behind his words.

I give this my highest recommendation.

Ok

Have had many men praise the book. I took lots of notes while listening and look forward to applying them to raising my own boys.

Left the listening with an impression that author spends too many words and mins traveling down rabbit trails of stories. Drags out the length and made completion my challenge.

Still though, a good way to explain the way of developing into a full man.
