By David Bruskas & Cindy Coloma / Tyndale House
In Dear Son by Dave Bruskas, he offers advice – the help he would have given to his own son had he lived through the growing-up milestones. After losing his infant son to a congenital heart defect, Dave wanted to help other young men. In the book, he talks about first dates, first jobs, weddings, births, friendships, and funerals. As a special feature, parts of the book are written to the infant son the author lost.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through Tyndale House book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.

Dear Son is designed to spiritually and practically guide young men in their actions, behaviors, thoughts, and lifestyle choices. Dave Bruskas starts out by discussing a bit about his son that left this life not very long after it just began. Each chapter of this book starts off by a letter from Dave to his son, as only a dad could write it. Immediately after the letter follows a discussion on a topic related to the letter, like being a Christian, a father, a husband, used by God, and being a provider to name a few.
Amazing! That is what I thought Dear Son was, amazing. Even though I am of the female species, I found the reading to be quite interesting and useful. Especially useful since I have just given birth to a son, my first child at the age of 45. This book was a page-turner, I loved it! I found the advice and guidance to be wise and right on target. There were Biblical scriptures used throughout the book.
I highly recommend this book, not just for young men but for all readers!
