Book Description

Written from the perspective of a new adult gaining appreciation for his father, this book playfully expresses the tension between parent and child while conveying a nugget of wisdom on every page. This collection of one-page essays illuminates a father's parental proverbs that sounded to his son like cryptic clichés. Easily read in a single sitting, you'll enjoy comparing notes and reminiscing on your own parents' favorite phrases.

Author Bio

I wrote Old Wisdom from an Old Head to honor fathers by explaining the admiration I’ve developed for my dad's patience and diligence in my upbringing. Originally presented to him at Father’s Day, I knew that other families would share similar feelings, and I always felt I should make the book more widely available.
