I purchased 3 cd audio books for my husband and brothers. I very much enjoyed Tim Russert reading his story of the relationship he developed with his Dad and later on in life, with his son. The story took me back to my younger years, which were the 60?s, and the turbulent times of that era. Many of the family situations he and his Dad encountered reminded me of my own family at that period in time. I would recommend this book to anyone who values the relationship between a son and father or who anticipates becoming a father. Truly sad that Tim Russert passed away, way before his time.

Great read !!!
This is another of those "hard to put it down" books. What did I enjoy about it? Probably the most important thing was the relationship Tim Russert had with his father. There are many instances we can all relate to. I plan to recommend the book to my Son in hopes he'll retain some ideas for the rearing of our grandson. I have a new respect for the author after reading the book and learning about his life...even though I was already a regular viewer of his TV news program. My wife is currently reading and enjoying the book. After reading the book you will know Tim Russert.
