3 Phenomenal Books Every Father Should Gift to His Son
I badly regret not reading them way earlier
“Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. And, weak men create hard times.”
— G. Michael Hopf, Those Who Remain
In today’s cesspool of instant gratification, we’re in the “Good Times, Weak Men” part of the cycle—the alarmingly plummeting testosterone levels being proof.
Weak men become weak fathers — that sire weak sons who again turn out into weak fathers.
To break this insidious cycle, we don’t have to reinvent the wheel — “What’s the ideal man?” is a question thinkers and powerful men have wrestled with for ages.
I want to share 3 books that distill that wisdom—ones I’ll reread all my life and gift to my future son(s) when they come of age.
A short disclaimer: Books can only guide you onto the right path — you still have to walk it. So back up your “bookish knowledge” with real-life experiences.
