Prologue Summary and Analysis

In the prologue, the author makes a direct plea for sympathy from the reader. He explains his methods and reasons for writing in the style that he chooses. Men, he explains, make up his intended audience. He admits to appealing to what he terms a male sense of humor.

The attitude of the prologue draws the reader to the book. It piques interest in the upcoming subject matter. In addition, it unapologetically gives the intent of the book, that being to encourage and relate to men who grew up or are growing up without fathers. It also appears as a cathartic experience for Donald Miller, the author.
