I really enjoyed the connections that the author made between virtuous character traits and men throughout history. It was very helpful to help guide thoughtful conversations about what made these men successful and how we can infuse these traits into our modern lives. I would love it if the author took the information from this book to write a children's book for boys so that we could use that as a conversation starter.

Want to help your son grow into a real man? If so, this is a must read. If you’re looking to discover what character traits are essential in raising men who will be leaders in the home, work place and community, you’ll want to check out this book. Rick’s message doesn’t start at raising good men; it’s starts with raising Godly men. The examples of real life men who made a real life difference in the world are inspiring and only further support his message.

Rick Johnson in his new book, “A Man In The Making” published by Revell gives us Strategies to Help Your Son Succeed in Life. From the back cover:  How does a boy become a man of character? As your son grows toward manhood, you can instill in him the values and character traits he will need to succeed.  Highlighting famous Christian men throughout history and the character trait that made each an outstanding model of manhood, parenting expert Rick Johnson gives you strategies to help mold your sons into honorable men. Johnson describes men such as: Martin Luther King Jr. George Washington John Wooden Abraham Lincoln Jedediah Smith Benjamin Franklin Leonardo da Vinci and more With the understanding gleaned from this insightful book, you can positively influence your son’s life–in a way that will last him a lifetime. Our fathers did a great job with us and we are both proud of them and thankful to them for what they have accomplished.  If they had the strategies outlined in this book perhaps they could have done an even better job with us?  When we don’t have a plan-a recipe-then the boy we are raising may turn out well, as planned, or he may fall a little short of the mark.  Mr. Johnson believes in a plan for success in raising our boys.  He clearly outlines this plan by looking at the lives of twelve me from politics, religious leaders, artists and The Bible.  It is time fathers had a user guide to help them raise their sons.  Mr. Johnson has given us a book that can be referred to over and over again.  ”A Man In The Making” is a book for all men to help raise their boys to manhood.  This is a book to give to any man who has a son or potentially will have a son.  Everyone will benefit from the results.
