About our Book
Fathers Matter is divided into three parts. It explains with clarity and compassion how the law affects all categories of fathers and navigates the reader through this increasingly complicated area of family law.
- Mr E Bigden, Suffolk
I found Fathers Matter in my local library. I took out six books but this was the only one that was any good so I bought it. I recommend it to all fathers in this predicament.M Rogers, Ewell
Discriminated against by the legal system; bled dry by solicitors fees –
fathers must read this book for knowledge and advice.Alan Johnston, Scottish Fathers Rights Organisation
I wish this book had been around when I went through my contemptible experiences at the hands of the Family Courts. It would have helped explain what was happening to me. It could have been the clear, cool voice of knowledge, experience, understanding and sympathy that is necessary to take men through the grief and pain and loss of having their children taken from them simply on the basis of their being male –
a very suspect condition if you’re a father, at least in the blinkered, myopic, outdated and reactionary view of our legal hierarchy. This book is a timely, invaluable guide around the many hurdles and obstructions the Courts will put in a man’s way to stop him being a dad to his kids. Read it and learn. Then try and change things so that children may know their dad loves them even if the law does not.Sir Bob Geldof KBE (Comments on the First Edition)
Having made some enquiries about solicitors’ hourly charge out rates and discovering that I would have to pay a minimum of £140.00 per hour in my area I calculated that this book would only cost me the equivalent of about 8.5 minutes of a solicitor’s time. Let’s face it –
how much advice would you get in 8.5 minutes? Bearing in mind Fathers Matter was written by a former family solicitor who worked for some of the top firms in London my view is that this book is cheap at the price.Martin Brookes, Hammersmith
Books in this area tend to be either dry-
as- dust legal tomes or splashy and imprecisely over- emotional attacks on or defences of the rights of fathers. Ms Conrad succeeds brilliantly in navigating the choppy waters between these reefs by presenting an excellent compendium of legal advice, common sense wisdom and compassionate insight that is always highly readable and engaging. It is a classic (and rare) example of how to put the precise needs of readers ahead of the vanity of authors.Mr T Hochstrasser, Greater London
