Embracing Your Father

Linda Nielsen, Author McGraw-Hill Companies $19.95 (288p) ISBN 978-0-07-142303-8
Placing the burden of the father-daughter relationship squarely on the daughter's shoulders, Nielsen argues that women who believe dads should always take the first step towards friendship""haven't moved beyond seeing themselves as a little girl."" The psychologist, who teaches a class on father-daughter relationships at Wake Forest University, offers many helpful suggestions to her readers, including tips on how to start seeing dad as""more than a wallet"" and how to stop playing the innocent virgin daughter. Chapters on handling the turmoil of divorce and remarriage and on getting to know dad as a person (and not just as a father figure), round out this useful, if somewhat guilt-tripping, self-help guide.
