Publisher's Summary

After Eric Davis spent over 16 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 15, 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.

Who chose this guy?!?!?

Why oh why would they choose this bloke to narrate is beyond me. His voice just kills the entire book. Every word in his joke of a voice is cringy and annoying. I’ll delete the audio book and get the paperback as the lessons from this book do sounds promising and interesting. But I can not for the life of me listen to this narrator speak another word

My ears are bleeding

The narrator has ruined this book, so hard to listen to, it seems they have added him for extra grit but completely unnecessary

Nope…

Difficult listen to be honest. The focus needed to be less on the writer talking talking about their time as a SEAL and more on the act/actions of parenting. Narrator is hard to listen to for an extended period of time.

great content but writer should be the narrator

I listened to the writer on a podcast and bought the book... surprised that he got someone else to narrate it when his own voice would have been better

That said, I still got loads of excellent advice, and highly recommend it

Satire?

Seriously the narrator makes it hard to determine if it’s satire or not,this book is less about being a good Father and more about d**k measuring.
