#1 Wild at Heart by John Eldredge

#1

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have provided counseling for hundreds of fathers. Most of the men I have counseled don’t particularly like to read but I can name a handful of men, fathers, that couldn’t put this book down. The book has a lot of references, stories, analogies, and metaphors from nature and the outdoors.

This book addresses deep issues of men to help them recover their masculine heart. The book addresses wounds that have been caused by our own father and brings healing to those areas so that we can be the father and positive male model to our children. It moves men from passivity into reclaiming passion and taking action to serve, love, and protect the ones we love. The book gets at the heart of the matter and inspires change.

It is particularly aimed at Christian men so it would be a good book for Christian fathers.

#2 The Boy Crisis by Warren Farrell PhD

#2

As the founder of a non–profit organization dedicated to the healthy development of young men, *The Boy Crisis, *written by Drs. Warren Farrell and John Gray*,* serves as a valuable resource for our mentors to better understand the issues that teen boys are experiencing. And, as a parent educator who teaches parents how to raise happy and responsible teen sons, I use *The Boy Crisis* as the main textbook because its filled with solutions that help parents have much better relationships with their sons.

I strongly recommend this book to any parent, mentor, therapist or sports coach so that they have the facts and solutions they need to be more effective in loving, coaching and supporting young men.

#3 Saving Washington by Chris Formant

#3

Acclaimed author Chris Formant tells the forgotten story of how a group of citizen soldiers from Maryland fought a heroic battle against elite British forces to preserve the Continental Army and save the life of General George Washington. In this epic adventure based on scholarly research, two young aspiring Baltimore merchants, one white and one black, march to Brooklyn as part of the Maryland militia. Under-trained and under-equipped, they would soon be on the front lines of one of the most decisive battles for American independence.

Formant immerses us in their dedication and their sacrifice as he weaves an epic tale, which includes actual historical figures. These all but forgotten men who hold back the British made it possible for Washington to evacuate hundreds of soldiers to Manhattan and create a new military strategy that turned the tide of the Revolutionary War.

It is a sweet reminder of all the reasons (100 in total) men are so important in a daughter’s life.

#6 Bigger Than This by Fabian Geyrhalter

#6

In his latest book “*Bigger Than This: How To Turn Any Venture Into An Admired Brand*”, Fabian Geyrhalter challenges companies to discover their spark and connect with today’s consumers on a deeper level. Geyrhalter was inspired to write “Bigger Than This” after studying commodity brands that people go crazy for in today’s age of innovation. He was fascinated to realize that companies offering commodities — products that people don’t necessarily need more of in the marketplace, and that see no innovation in functionality or design — were flourishing. All of these companies had only two things in common that created their success: fantastic brand thinking and a truly authentic story to tell.

Geyrhalter felt there was a lot to learn from these brands, even for an established brand that may have lost its authenticity along the way. His book focuses on the traits he saw in these companies and how they can be re-infused into any brand that wants to connect more deeply with its audience.

#7 The True Heart of a Man by Hanalei Vierra

#7

I wrote this book that gives adult men a 7-step “road map” to get out of an antiquated definition of masculinity that has brainwashed them to mistrust their emotional experiences and toward a healthier, more mature version of masculine identity that is needed in a 21st-century world.

#8 A World War II Flight Surgeon’s Story by S. Carlisle May

#8

This book that I wrote is a true account of a Flight Surgeon’s experience working to keep pilots flying from Africa to Normandy to central Germany. The book is derived from personal interviews, letters home and pictures which include the historic meeting between Gens. Clark, Patton and Eisenhower and the visit from President Roosevelt. It also offers insight into medicine at that time.

#9 A Spiritual Renewal: A Journey to Medjugorje by Alberta Sequeira

Spiritual Renewal Cover

It might sound too spiritual and girly for men but this book is a heartfelt, moving memoir of the author’s father and her journey to find inner peace and renewal of life. It’s a story about her life with her father, Brigadier General, Albert L. Gramm. She shows how we can wait too long to learn about the lives of the men and women in the service after coming home from wars or life in general.

Brigadier, Albert L. Gramm, died on November 19, 1990, from cancer. It was then that Alberta realized while she stayed at his bedside during his illness that she never took the time to get to know this great man or his life fighting during WWII fighting in some of the famous battles; Metz, Lorraine, and The Battle of the Bulge. He had been one of the commanding officers of the 26th Yankee Division. He was about to take those achievements with him. Testimonies by other soldiers have included in the book with their experiences with war.

His devotion to saying the rosary every day while he faced his enemies during the war stayed with him on the return home. He had promised The Blessed Mother that if she got him home safely to his family, he would say the blessed prayer until his death.

It’s at this time, when Mr. Gramm struggled to say his rosary in his deathbed and losing concentration on it, that Alberta turns back to her faith. She learns the rosary and understand’s each decade is about the life of Mary and Jesus. She realized after fifteen years away from the Church that she not only needed God back in her life but wanted Him.
