“For Dwier Brown, who played Kevin Costner's father in Field of Dreams, it was the scene of a lifetime. For fans, it was a powerful, evocative game of catch that still resonates 25 years later. Many actors may have bigger names, but few could write as artfully about their craft. Read this book..."

 

                                   -Tyler Kepner, the New York Times

 “With If You Build It..., Brown makes a powerful literary statement of his own, and reminds us again about the magical, complicated, and lasting bond between fathers

and sons. It is a personal journey you won't want to miss.

 

             - Christian Red, the New York Daily News

“Dwier Brown is a master story-teller, writing from his heart and awakening yours.”

 

                                                                  - Marianne Williamson, author of A Return To Love and world renowned speaker

“Dwier Brown is a great storyteller—I couldn’t put his book down! He entertains us with behind-the-scenes stories about "Field of Dreams". He moves us with with stories about his own father and the fathers of countless strangers who have approached him because of his role in the movie. He delights us with colorful tales of growing up in rural Ohio and overcoming his inherited stoicism to become an actor. If you loved "Field of Dreams", or if you just love your father—or wish you could—you’ll love this book.”

 

                                                                – Lawrence Kessenich, editor of Shoeless Joe, the basis for Field of Dreams 

“Dwier Brown has written a wonderfully funny and unforgettably charming memoir. He makes a poetic and convincing case that he was somehow fated, if not born, to play the role of John Kinsella, and in his book he has chronicled America's love for baseball and for a movie that touches the heart of anyone who's ever missed his dad.”

 

                                                                                       - Rick Cleveland, Emmy-winning writer and producer

                                                                                          The West Wing, Six Feet Under and House Of Cards

“It’s no surprise that Dwier Brown beautifully captures what it was like to film the ending of “Field of Dreams” - after all, he is the ending. What is a revelation is the deeply emotional and honest telling of his story - what led up to that moment, and what evolved from it. This is an intimate look at the intersection of an actor’s life and his art, and - just like the movie - of a father-son relationship you won’t forget.”

                                                                     

                                                                                                 - Phil Robinson, writer/director of Field of Dreams

 

                                                              

“Wow. I can't ever remember reading any book that was such a beautiful combination of warm stories, humor, personal reflection, intimate sharing, honesty and vulnerability, gentleness and insight, and thoughtful reflections and sharing of one's own, and even others' relevant, intimate experiences. …it is a major accomplishment, and a wonderful and inspiring contribution on many levels. I was touched and moved over and over again. I feel inspired by it.”

 

                                                                                                       – David Feigin, producer and CEO, First Films

 “Such a beautiful, inspiring book. I was so taken by Dwier's relationship with his father, the stories of fans, his quotes, and more. Bravo - he hit it out of the park with this one.”

 

                                                                                                          - Jane Ayer, former Universal Studios exec

 

                                                                                                     

“Dwier has done it. He's written a wonderful book. He's managed to elicit much the same pathos of the movie. He's deftly woven the narrative of the film's creation, the narrative of his career, the evolution of his relationship with his father, and the extrapolation of all of our relationships with our fathers and sons. I absolutely LOVE all of the interludes, every one of them brought tears to my eyes.”

 

                                                                                                                                  - Brad Herzog, Why Not Books

 

                                                                                                     

 “It's the kind of book you want to read all in one sitting! I've laughed, I've cried. I just want to know what's next. I want to finish the book, but I don't! It's like good chocolate. I want to eat it, but I don't want it to be all gone!”

 

                                                                                                                                           - Deborah Lee, TLC

 

                                                                                                     

 " I was amazed at the impact of Dwier Brown’s role in Field of Dreams; how so many people, over the last 25 years have come up to Mr. Brown, and recognizing him from the last 5 minutes of the film, end up sharing the most touching, heartfelt stories of how the movie changed their lives. He intersperses these wonderful stories (I cried with every one), with his own poignant story about his father who passed away just weeks before the film was shot, all the while adding colorful remembrances of what it was like to be involved in a movie that was Burt Lancaster's last film.

I must say, Dwier has hit a home run! I couldn't put it down.”

 

                                                                                                                                               - Tom Lennon, music producer JALP
