The book is a realistic conversation between a father and his son. It beautifully handles a man’s identity, success, family, relationship, marriage, happiness, conflict, faith, self-belief and other values. A walk from pre birth to retirement.
If I had a son (stories of manhood to our sons), adopts an authentic African story telling approach in a friendly language giving it a voice of its own. It is intended to communicate to each reader in a personal way, bringing back memories of sitting round the fireplace listening to grandmothers narrate stories of old times.
The book borrows a lot of lessons from the author’s life, challenges and successes. He shares his thoughts vulnerably, offering practical knowledge from a tried and tested perspective of life through the eyes of a real person.
The book is designed to be a lifetime manual for anyone desiring a fulfilling life.At a time when the male human species is under siege from all directions, this is a fitting companion that softly reminds human beings the simple things that make a successful life amidst a world that is shouting a definition of manhood that is far from the original intent of our creator
