A Labor Of Love - Kent Foreman
This book was different!
Written from a father to his daughter, the book uses a dictionary format to discuss a bunch of concepts, in the ethos of fatherly wisdom.
I think the book was actually wiser than it needed to be. Surprisingly insightful, well written, and charming.
This book could have easily been overly sentimental, but it wasn’t and I was able to really enjoy this voyeuristic peak into this paternal lesson.
I like that the dictionary format allowed the author to cover many topics without being confined. Many of the sections were very brief and didn’t need to be any longer.
Overall I would recommend this book. It’s not heavy or demanding reading, and I think it accomplished exactly what it intended to.
The author sent me this book but I can’t find his account! Thank you Kent! I appreciate you and this book.
