After receiving an avalanche of e-mails and letters about "Big Russ and Me," Tim Russert couldn't resist writing "Wisdom of Our Fathers." Both books share a firm commitment to honoring fathers of "the greatest generation." They may not have parented the way "yuppie parents" parent, but they certainly touched the hearts and souls of their sons and daughters. Those who consider the book "sappy" likely haven't read it or simply hold a not-so-hidden disdain for Russert for political reasons. The varying vignettes are touching but not sappy. They honestly share stories about imperfect men who were imperfect fathers, yet who were real men and real dads. We all have much to learn about fathering from them.

Reviewer: Bob Kellemen is the author of "Soul Physicians," "Spiritual Friends," and "Beyond the Suffering" (which honors African American founding fathers and mothers).
