Wise Council

It's not Mitch Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven, but perhaps Bruce Feller's The Council of Dads should be known as "The Six Guys I Trust on Earth."

The Council of Dads: My Daughters, My Illness, and the Men Who Could Be MeAlbom took maintenance maven "Eddie" through his life so readers could find fulfillment through his interaction with five wise men he met upon passing. Feller, learning he was facing a cancer death sentence, turned to friends for the wisdom he wanted to leave his twin daughters. Recently, he came up with 10 of the most important lessons, but perhaps the most important one was his original inspiration: don't reinvent the dad wheel, refine the one built by others and it will carry your children further.
