Navy SEAL sniper instructor Eric Davis applies his discipline techniques to raising his son in this incredible audiobook, Raising Men: Lessons Navy SEALs Learned from Their Training and Taught to Their Sons.
After Eric Davis spent over sixteen years in the military, including a decade in the SEAL teams, his family was more than used to his absence on deployments and secret missions that could obscure his whereabouts for months at a time. Without a father figure in his own life since the age of fifteen, Eric was desperate to maintain the bonds he'd fought so hard to forge when his children were young--particularly with his son, Jason, because he knew how difficult it was to face the challenge of becoming a man on one's own. Unfortunately Eric learned the hard way that quality time doesn't always show up in quantity time.
Facebook, television, phones, video games, school, jobs, friends--they all got in the way of a real, meaningful father-son relationship. It was time to take action.
As a SEAL, Eric learned to innovate and push boundaries, allowing him to function at levels beyond what was expected, comfortable, ordinary, and even imaginable, and he knew that as a father he needed to do the same with his son. Meeting extreme with extreme was the only answer.
Using a unique blend of discipline, leadership, adventure, and grace, Eric and his SEAL brothers will teach you how to connect and reconnect with your sons and learn how to raise real men--the Navy SEAL way.
Customer ReviewsSee All
Like other reviews said. Great book, poor narrator. I opted for reading it instead. Yes, SEAL is every fourth word in the book, but set that aside and pay attention to the lessons.
Narrators voice is terrible
Good book but the narrators voice will drive you crazy. There is no way this guy talks like this in real life. Listen to the preview before buying.
I’m sure the narrator was directed to sound or read the way he did but it did not work. His reading makes it difficult to hear important points of the book and emphasizes parts that are not important.
