Considering I’m raising two boys and feel completely out of my depth with both of them, I was eager to read what Kent Evans had to say in his [easyazon_link identifier=”193962228X” locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]Wise Guys: Unlocking Hidden Wisdom from the Men Around You[/easyazon_link] thanks to FlyBy Promotions giving me an advanced reader copy to read. My kids have strong role models in their lives already, but for different reasons. I want them to learn how to pick up which traits are worth carrying on for future generations. I was hoping that Wise Guys would help with that process for the kids.
About [easyazon_link identifier=”193962228X” locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]Wise Guys: Unlocking Hidden Wisdom from the Men Around You[/easyazon_link]
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.
I expected [easyazon_link identifier=”193962228X” locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]Wise Guys[/easyazon_link] to show me how to teach or have them learn how to pick up valuable bits of information from the men in their lives. However, it wasn’t necessarily a how-to style book.
This book may not have been what I expected, but it ended up being so much more. This book is filled with stories that are engaging. It was like I was sitting in a rocking chair listening to Kent Evans share his life stories while we laughed and savored a sunset together. He shared loads of wisdom in his book.
Many of the lessons he shared were ones that I needed to hear again in a more practical manner. I don’t feel that I will easily forget this book. After the end of each chapter, he asked a series of questions too that make the readers ponder about their own lives. It’s a great book!
