"David Hirsch is a mover and leader in the 'Fathering' movement. His personal commitment to his own family distinguishes him as an overcomer father, but in addition he is raising the importance of responsible fathering in the conciseness of America. As a colleague and friend I applaud his efforts through the Illinois Fatherhood Initiative, the 21st Century Dads project, and the Dads Honor Ride."
—Ken Canfield PhD, Founder, National Center for Fathering
"David Hirsch lives his life and passion on a daily basis. Through this book, he examines the role fathers have in our society and why their absence continues in the 21st century. He shares his passion to change this trajectory and thus change the world! Kudos to David for tackling head on a tough issue . . . and for living his life out loud!"
—Lisa M. Dietlin, President & CEO, The Institute of Transformational Philanthropy (ITP)
"A moving, deeply engaging story that will inspire you to hug your kids, tell them you love them, and dive in harder than ever to the greatest job a man can ever have—fatherhood."
—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man
"Having cycled across the country more than 85 times, including Route 66 dozens of times, I know first hand the challenges David encountered. Riding 100+ miles a day for three weeks takes a level of commitment and perseverance few possess. I admire his Dads Honor Ride accomplishment and more importantly, the commitment he brings to bridging the gap for those growing up without dads."
