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.

Fathers Matter has been an invaluable source of information for our programme.

S Feilden, Films of Record, Series Producer for the March 2010 BBC2 programme Who needs fathers?

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

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

Celia Conrad has a true understanding of a father’s dilemma. This was the best money    I ever spent!

James Smythe, London

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on the basis of their being male – a    very suspect condition if you’re a father, at least in the blinkered, myopic, outdated    and reactionary view of our legal hierarchy.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.
