The Three Doctors—Drs. Sampson Davis, George Jenkins, and Rameck Hunt—discovered early in their friendship that they shared one disturbing trait: As children, they had to navigate life in inner-city Newark without a father’s support and guidance. While each young man dealt with the turmoil caused by an absent father, with no male role model to turn to for advice, each veered dangerously close to a life of delinquency, drugs, and crime. But despite great odds, the three overcame the statistics. In high school, they formed the Pact, a promise to one another that they would become doctors, and it kept them dedicated to one another and to their dream, and helped to put them on the road to successful careers as physicians.

In The Bond, the Three Doctors plumb their own tough childhoods to explore the national epidemic of fatherlessness. But rather than cling to any bitterness or pain they may have felt as children about their fathers’ inability to be in their lives, as adults Davis, Jenkins, and Hunt sought out their fathers and worked to reconnect with them. In the doctors’ own words—and their fathers’—they describe the crucial lessons they learned, identifying ways to stem the tide of fatherlessness that’s sweeping through communities across the country. Honest, brave, and poignant, The Bond is a book for every family, every father, and every man.

    " One of the best books I've read on males making peace with their fathers. The sequel to The Pact, you will not be disappointed with this book. Written from the point of view of the doctors,as well as their fathers. Highly recommended. "

    " This should be required reading for any person that thinks they want to become a parent. These brothers clearly understand and explain just how much our children need both parents in their lives to build their self-esteem and self-purpose in life. "
