I am a psychologist with over four decades of experience working with families. Dr. Nielsen takes both fathers and daughters step by step through a process to repair their relationship. The book is at once thorough and accessible, extremely practical and deeply hopeful. Along the way, each chapter puts critical research into the hands of fathers and daughters who are desperate for guidance. The checklists communicate this research in a way that is both entertaining and extremely useful.
