FatherLoss is a nuanced look at one of the most common and least-studied events in men's lives. Offering a fresh view of the grieving process and practical advice, this book contains information on: how a son can prepare for his loss; coping immediately following the death; a woman's role in helping men through it; and the different ways men grieve.

Neil Chethik, a graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, specializes in writing about the psychology of men. A professional speaker and workshop leader, he has worked on the staffs of newspapers in Florida and California. He lives in Lexington, Kentucky.From Library Journal:
Men have been accused of being incapable of grieving when, in truth, says writer/speaker Chethik, they have not been allowed to do so. Billed as a counterpart to Hope Edelman's superior Motherless Daughters, FatherLoss features up-close-and-personal profiles of father-son relationships, drawing on the author's national survey of 300 men and interviews with 70 others. Grieving, Chethik says, is part of the unique relationship between sons and fathers; it is highly subjective and dependent on the son's age at the time of his father's death. Chethik also studies how celebrities like Michael Jordan and Ernest Hemingway handled their fathers' deaths. Although well written, this book reads like a series of stretched-out human-interest articles, and the author's advice is buried in long passages. All in all, FatherLoss is a noble book for acknowledging men's right to grieve, but it lacks clear how-to advice. Recommended especially for small support groups but also for public libraries where interest warrants.DDouglas C. Lord, Hartford P.L., CT
