Format: Paperback
I cannot say enough about the book "I Call Shotgun" by Tommy Newberry & Curt Beavers. The book is intended for fathers to read with their sons. It has 64 "lessons" from dad to son. The authors even included conversation starters at the back of the book. The "lessons" are written in letter form from the author to their own sons, but I can tell you as a mom reading the book I was extremely pleased that there are fathers out there that care enough to write this book. I think much of what they have to say is exactly what any parent would say to their child. I could not wait to pass this book along to my husband to read with our teenage son. The book is full of moral lessons, values and ideas to create not just a legacy with your son but to provide some guidance that will help them become better men and fathers themselves. The book tells us what we have all long known to be a fact, and that is that dads everywhere need to spend time with their sons to establish a relationship with them or someone else will! And who wouldn't rather see dads be the major influence in their son's lives? The point `if you build a relationship with you son then it will likely last a lifetime' is driven home in this book. I would highly recommend "I Call Shotgun" to fathers everywhere! This would be a great parenting book for instilling character in your son at most any age!
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion. These opinions are mine and mine alone.

Format: Paperback
Its really hard to be a father today - our culture is pervaded with negativity and attacks on success. I want my kids to be independent in their thinking and in their finances! I want them to be confident and successful in all areas of life and most importantly to take personal responsibility for their actions.

Tommy Newberry has written the book I wish I had the talent to write. We have had some very rich conversations in my family around these topics because of I Call Shotgun. What our children so urgently need more than excuses for failure, certainly money, more video games or iWhatevers is our take on bedrock, timeless principles. Mr. Newberry nails it in this book and you will find it a great way to have conversations with your children that you *should* be having. You are the only one that can make this happen; not school, and not some mythical fad that will correct whatever ails them. Buy this book and use it as a tool to have multi-generaltiona impact on your kids and their kids. Start a new tradition or two and you may just change little lives in ways you couldn't even contemplate. Turn parenting into a verb again.

Format: Paperback
Being a father of two boys, and being the son of a father that's passed on, this book comes at a great point in time for me as I try to be the best dad I can be without having the luxury to seek my own father's advice. The short chapters presented as letters to the author's sons serve as great material for starting conversations with my own sons. There is great wisdom and insight in this book, even if you find yourself not agreeing with some of the authors' more political viewpoints, as a couple of reviewers noted. This seems to be more and more common in our society. When we disagree with a viewpoint presented by someone, we want to vilify them and nullify everything they say. I choose to look for the positives and leave the negatives behind. Follow that approach, and you'll find lots of positives in this book.

We have been so blessed by Curt Beavers for the past 15 years. He has not only been our leader, but a mentor and a dear friend. He is the true example of a Godly man; in thought, word and deed. He is such a tireless servant for the Lord, and has such a huge heart for his family. People around the world are drawn to listen when he speaks. He is uplifting and very inspiring!So glad he shared his wisdom with the world in a book. What a Blessing!

Having known & loved Curt Beavers and his family for many years, and having ready Tommy Newberry's previous books, I was eager to read their new book, I Call Shotgun. This book is full of practical help, inspiring letters, and true inspiration for the daunting privilege we have as parents, even for me as a single mom.

These gentlemen have addressed a most important topic. This message needs to be taught far and wide so we can turn this country in a better direction. This book is really for everyone, so I encourage you to read it and share it. Thank you Tommy and Curt for caring about our families and our future!

Format: Paperback
This book is a treasure trove of wisdom. Each of the 64 chapters are letters that the authors have written to their sons about various values and words of wisdom. Although this book is geared toward dads and sons, I think it can be used by single moms, children/young adults, and even grandma's like me. It was like reading a modern day book of proverbs, it was so full of wisdom and just plain common sense.

Tommy Newberry and Curt Beavers are definitely men of strong Christian faith and are successful in the business world. And it shows in their letters to their sons. I was so moved by these letters and thought how blessed these young men are to have fathers like this who have taken the time to write down some of the most important lessons to learn that they will ever need. And to share them with us so we can share them with our children and young adults.

If you are like me, it's hard to turn my thoughts into words. So many things you want to say, yet you just don't know how. Well, this book was made for us. It's all inside these short chapters. It's very easy to sit down and read one chapter a day or maybe two or three a week. That way you'll have time to let it really sink in. I read the book straight through for this review, but you don't have to. You can pick and choose the topic that's important to you at the moment.

These letters are so full of wisdom and common sense that each letter should be savored and studied - remember them - the lessons taught are important ones. I think the last chapter "Everything Counts" sums it up. Your life is full of moments, days, events - good and bad. But it all counts.
