Calvin Sandborn's Becoming the Kind Father continues to receive a great deal of positive attention in the media. This book traces the journey from being the man that society expects you to be, cut off from your feelings and out of touch with your inner life, to being a "kind father" - a man whose power is based in healing, love, acceptance and forgiveness.

San Diego Union-Tribune
"Becoming the Kind Father: A Son's Journey is a warm and touching guide for any man who, like author Calvin Sandborn, grew up with a harsh father. Sandborn tells how he finally faced himself, what he had become and how he became the person he wanted to be for his children."

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

"In Becoming the Kind Father, Sandborn reveals how he managed to rid himself of the harsh father's voice and create an inner image and voice of a kind father. Through flashbacks to his boyhood, self-examination and psychological data, he shows emotionally distant dads a way to connect with themselves, their children and others."
