Another Spence winner--different that his previous books 4 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Spence has written many books about the law, politics and himself. This book is different. It is a book of short essays about things a father can (and should) do with his son. Although apparently intended for that audience, I found the book terrific and I have two daughters. Perhaps it is about what a father should do with his children. Nonetheless, it is written in the classic style of previous Spence books. The book is co-authored by Spence's brother Tom who also provided the illustrations. It is worth reading. Another victory for Spence. AAA+++

A Boy's Summer: Father and Son Together 16 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A great book for fathers and sons. This is a great gift for Father's Day and should be read by Fathers and Sons on Father's Day. It is motivational as well as heart warming. My son loved the book and related well to the various chapters. I have purchased 20 copies to give to my employees with sons. It's excellent.

Perfect gift for both fathers and sons 26 Jun. 2002
By Kcorn - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As Gary Spence puts it "Fathers are just boys with whiskers" and lest the reader fear that Spence is ignoring girls, he intends to write another book for fathers and their daughters. A Boy's Summer is a delight, guaranteed to awaken the boy lurking in every man and to inspire boys to find pleasure in timeless pursuits, loved for generations - from walking on stilts to building box traps.
I bought several copies of this one to give as "new baby" gifts - for the fathers of baby boys, because so many new baby gifts include the new mother, but not necessarily the new father. This one reveals what fun can be had in the years to come, activities which can be shared not only by boys and their fathers but perhaps a kindly uncle or big brother). From hiking to fishing, making fire the way the Indians did to rafting, you won't find a better guide to adventuring together.

What delightful change, and a pleasantly remarkable book. Gerry Spence, the great trial lawyer, who has wowed us with his brilliance in the courtrooom and his rustic biting commentary on Larry King and the Geraldo Rivera televised shows gives us a book on parenting. It is humorous filled with tips for fathers and sons to spend quality time together. This legal giant shares his own brand of fatherhood and revisits the "boy" in himself.Enjoyable reading.
A book for all children. 8 Oct. 2013
By T. Cherry - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Because this book has so much Fun for all children, U can't help but Really love the book. I like it because a child can learn so much on how to do things. Most children will have so much fun after they learn to make & do the things on their own. U don't have to be a child to enjoy the book, just be a child at Heart.
