Raising Men: Lessons Navy SEALs Learned from Their Training and Taught to Their Sons Read Online Free - 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 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.

I'm clearly biased since I wrote the book, but it is my hope that anyone who reads it will benefit from the SEAL performance principles I used within it.
I wrote this for anyone looking to live a life beyond their current situation. Whether you're a father or not this book was designed to be of v...

I wouldn't normally read a book on parenting, but it was being featured at the library, and sounded like an interesting premise. As Mr. Davis says in the beginning, he chose to target sons for the book, but all his advice also pertains to how he raises his daughters. That being said, I would go f...

LOVED this book! I will highly recommend this book to any person living, haha. Geared specifically towards fathers of boys, it's still such a good book for parents to read, and for people who live in the world to read. Filled with all kinds of good advice and suggestions on being a confident, con...

Easy read. What I liked most about this book is Eric’s ability to translate his SEAL training to real life challenges while also clearly communicating a nurturing approach that doesn’t give the impression of an inflexible, militaristic home life. If you can’t take rough language, don’t read books...

Highly recommended to all the parents who want to raise kick ass kids.
Not only will this approach raise seal pups but also might help in reducing your own gut and add some more years to your life. But finally it is too much work :). For me not worth the years it will add or gut it will drop.

This is such a great book! Thank you Eric Davis for passing on your knowledge and experiences in being the ultimate parent/father! I wish this book would have came back out in 1998 when my son was born. Although my son is in college now, after what I just read, I now have renewed sense of motivat...

Made me feel like crap
This was simply a phenomenal book on fatherhood. All of Eric's stories made me feel like an inadequate dad but I'm okay with that because it motivated me to work on myself. Enter this book without the ego and with an open mind and you're sure to walk away a different man.

Written for fathers, but no reason why mother's shouldn't read this either. It's so macho though that it's almost corny and it's half autobiography really. But if you can get past all the Hooya's! the author says some very useful stuff about raising sons, from a man's perspective.

Love this book!! I am also Army officer and can see how well this translates. Eric Davis has heavily meditating on thoughtful parenting. Parenting unique kids (like my 3 sons under 7) really does require lots of forethought, a guidebook, and consistency.
