It is a very easy read with great ideas that will help you take what you read and implement it in your son’s life. I would highly recommend this book to any dad or grandpa who wants to raise a boy to be a Godly man.”

“I loved this book! The writing is splendid and the stories of men and their sons are relevant, humorous, and eye-opening. It is a quick read and it covers various age groups to meet the needs of fathers as they seek to help their sons at each stage of life. There are many good and practical ideas so men don’t have to wonder what to do. I wish there was more to help women like me who had to raise a son during some crucial years without a dad around, but it sure inspired me to be purposeful in obtaining the help of some strong men of integrity who will come alongside to do the things this book suggests. I would highly recommend this book for all dads who want to be deliberate in raising great men.”
