    1. This is a memorable book. In a few words, mostly reconstructed family dialogue, Larry Elder imparts a vivid impression of his immediate family (mom, dad and brothers Kirk and Dennis), his extended family and the family's cultural roots. Larry follows the life of his father, Randolph, from an impoverished childhood in the Jim Crow South through the Marine Corps in World War II to his work-driven years in Los Angeles--"hard memories" of a work-driven man who terrified his sons. Larry broke off rel [...]


    2. This book is excellent - there is some swearing so be warned; but it is a wonderful autobiography and tribute from a son to his father. Larry Elder is a (conservative) black talk show host who attended Brown University and Michigan for law school. I read this book in about 24 hours. Compelling story.


    3. Larry Elder's memoir emphasizes the importance of a two parent family. It also relates the different perception a child may have of his father as a child and then as an adult. Elder's book reminds us that sometimes relationships are not as they seem.


    4. Great book, I thought of the trials with my own father and some of the conversations that we have had, and are still having, yes my father did come from the same era as Larry's dad, went through some of the same things, utilized the military as a stepping stone, raised many boys. Many of us would find some similarities in our life spaces with this book, I thought it a was a welcome read during this holiday season, and it made me appreciate my own father even more. It shows that there are blind s [...]


    5. As a long time listener of the Larry Elder Show I was looking forward to reading this book. Larry is a libertarian (not a conservative) who believes in limited government and personal responsibility. In this book we find that hard work and self reliance can get you through the challenges of life and lead to success. We learn this from the story of his father, a man who did not know who his father was. He was on his own at age 13 and had less than a high school education, yet he worked hard at va [...]


    6. Loved it. Thanks you Larry Elder for presenting an honest look at the relationship you had with your difficult father. You set out to confront your father, to ask him why life was so tough growing up with an angry man in the house and it took a big guy (you) to look at life from his point of view, the hardships he suffered, the work ethic he developed, and his philosophy of life that kept him from deserting his family and winding up a derelict in an alley somewhere. A book for all people, all c [...]


    7. I have been a radio fan of Larry Elder's for many years. He hosted an afternoon show in Los Angeles that added a calm perspective to the earlier news and opinions of the day for me. I was surprised though at how this very clear political analyst could translate his clarity to such a personal arena, his troubled history with his father. That is a big leap for the most sensitive person. I salute him for his courage and his example in showing adult children how they can establish or rebuild broken [...]


    8. There's a moment in this book where Larry Elder explicitly says that his life goal is not to better the world but to be rich. This is ultimately the most self-reflective moment in this tome--which undoubtedly eludes the author. Elder has no principles. He's just trying to make money.If you're at all with experienced with Larry Elder's radio shows, he espouses a neo-fascist ideology under a pretense of libertarianism while exhibiting bizarre fits of rage. His views are, at times, disconnected fro [...]


    9. I just finished reading Dear Father, Dear Son, and enjoyed it immensely. This book is for everyone. Its timeless, touching, funny and one the best books I have ever read.




    10. An excellent book. In listening to the story of Larry's life and his dad's not only did I pick up a lot of great advice, but got a great opportunity to reflect. I thought about my relationships and life thus far and how I want to end well. I got pretty choked up towards the end thinking about my own parents and what it will be like as we all grow older. I would highly recommend anyone pick up this book regardless of your stage in life or political leanings.


    11. Elder had a flawed father. We all do. He doesn't understand what made his father tick what was behind his sometimes mysterious and even frightening actions? Still his father set a mostly good example of what a father is what a father does. How he protects and guides his children.Elder is lucky to have a father this particular father. He follows his father's example his father,s teaching and meets with success. But still he doesn't understand his father. In many ways, hates his father.Then one da [...]


    12. Lots of rough language. I almost stopped reading it in the beginning (such rough language lots of violence toward the children), but I'm so glad I stuck with it. Even though he had a horrible childhood and his relationship with his dad was disastrous, in sitting down with his dad and learning more about him, he grew to love him and developed a relationship with him. Beautiful story!
