My husband isn’t an avid reader. To be honest, he only reads when he has to, however this book has grabbed his attention lately and I have found him reading it whenever possible.
That book is Wise Guys: Unlocking Hidden Wisdom from the Men Around You by Kent Evans.
About the book:
For guys, more than ever, it’s a confusing world. Your GPS doesn’t offer any maps showing how to get to the point of wisdom — and who likes asking for directions anyway?
But there are ways to get that guidance you need. The answers may be all around you, in the form of guys you already know. Wise guys. More experienced guys. Better-traveled guys. Could there be ways to tap into their invaluable knowledge without enduring dull lectures or taking pages of notes?
Kent Evans has surrounded himself with these wise guys. They have shown him all the back roads on the way to wisdom. With a great deal of humor and an endless supply of stories, he wants to show you how to gather life-enriching truth from the guys in your own circle.
My husband’s thoughts:
This book has been a huge insight into the lost art of mentorship and learning as a man to build relationships with older and wiser men so that you can learn from their character. There are exercises in the book to help along with this process.
The book features the author’s personal journey into learning to mentor others.
I haven’t finished the book yet, but I already see how this can help me as a leader and a father to help my sons develop into men. I look forward to finishing it in the coming days and definitely recommend giving it a read. I will be passing it along to another once I am done reading.
