Wise Guys Review and Giveaway


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. (Goodreads)


KENT EVANS is the board chairman and co-founder of Manhood Journey, a ministry that helps fathers and mentors build the next generation of godly men.  Kent has personally experienced how the guidance of godly men can change the course of a life.  Today he is blessed with a solid 20-year marriage, four wonderful sons and a fulfilling life – largely because of what he’s learned from other men.  He lives in Louisville, Kentucky, and can be found on Twitter @manhoodjourney.

My Thoughts

I like the layout of this book, very basic and to the point. I love the whole idea of gaining wisdom from your wise peers around you. It seems difficult to find these days; a wise, Godly man of any age. So on that note I think this books presents what that is and how to know who a wise man is. There are many stories which are somewhat entertaining but not necessarily captivating. I wouldn't say this book drew me in and my husband is still having a hard time getting through it. Honestly, it is full of things we have heard before (not the funny stories of course) but the overall idea. I think for someone who hasn't read a book like this, needs a fun guidance book, or perhaps is a new Christian this would be a great book. 
So I'll say it's a good book, just not a great book.
