FlyBy Book Review: Wise Guys by Kent Evans


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.


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.

My Thoughts and Review: 

I am a mom of 3 boys, all of them almost teenagers. I am outnumbered in our household, 4 men/boys and 1 Wife/Mom, so I was really excited when given the chance to read and review Wise Guys.

Wise Guys in laid out in a simple to read and understand format, as it is more of story telling then "self help". Each chapter has a set of "Questions to Consider", which are great if using the book in a Bible Study or as Father and Son study. I really enjoyed Kent Evans stories of how he gained wisdom from other men around him in life. Men encouraging Men through Mentorship is something that Kent Evans truly believes in and has created a ministry at Manhood Journey. I do think that Mentorship is a WONDERFUL thing for Young Men and Boys! Kent Evans has a wonderful spin on mentorship, in that his belief is that Men should seek out Men who have the qualities that they hope to achieve in their own life. I completely agree with having Like minded mentors!!

The 17 Chapters of the Book include: 
  1. Figure Yourself Out
  2. Encourage Relentlessly
  3. Always be Asking
  4. Correct Gently
  5. Learn From Action
  6. Follow the Sprinters
  7. Welcome Kindly
  8. Exercise Tangible Grace
  9. Finish Strong
  10. Ditch the Cynicism
  11. Ask Artfully
  12. Know When to Let Go
  13. Pray Spontaneously
  14. Tap Shoulders
  15. Command Calmly
  16. Sign Up. Pitch In
  17. Simply Excel 
I really enjoyed this book and I hope that my husband and 3 boys will go through it together in the near future! GREAT read for Father/Son, Mens Bible Study Groups, or just any man or boy!!! I think this book would make a WONDERFUL Father's Day or Graduation Gift!!
