"As a father and the product of a fatherless home, I can say: this book is gold. We need tools, roadmaps, and sage wisdom to become who we were made to be and reinvest in the next generation. The heartfelt transparency of the stories in I Wish My Dad gives men permission to share their truth, heal, and learn the emotional skills needed for healthy father-and-son relationships." --LeCrae, Grammy Award-winning hip-hop artist and New York Times bestselling author

"Healthy and vulnerable spaces for men and their sons are a necessity in today's culture. The stories shared by fathers and sons in I Wish My Dad allow readers a glimpse into the emotional needs of men that few rarely get to express. This book shares truths that need to be heard." --David Michael Wyatt, singer and songwriter

"I Wish My Dad is more than a right-on-time read; it is an invitation for fathers and sons to be the curators of the change they are seeking to see in themselves and in their families. The stories in this love-offering of a book will help to heal hearts, homes, and relationships between fathers and sons." --Shawn Dove, founder of Corporation for Black Male Achievement and managing partner of New Profit

"I Wish My Dad is emotional, insightful, humbling, palatable, challenging, and needed; you will come away not only rooting for these men, but believing there is hope for yourself." --A. D. "Lumkile" Thomason, author and filmmaker
