Review

In Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. ----S.E. Cupp Best Selling Author & Fox News Analyst

If I ever have daughters I m going to raise them up like Doug Giles has done: strong, proudly feminine, tough as nails, Proverbs 31 girls. Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls is an excellent guide which shows how a father can raise up real women in a society that desperately needs them. ----Dana Loesch, Editor BigJournalism.com, Talk Radio Host, Television Commentator

Don't pick a fight with the Giles girls! -- --Andrew Breitbart

More About the Author

Doug Giles is the man behind ClashDaily.com. In addition to driving ClashDaily.com, Giles is a popular columnist on Townhall.com, a pastor at ClashChurch.com, an artist and the author of the book Raising Righteous & Rowdy Girls.

Doug's articles have also appeared on several other print and online news sources, including The Washington Times, The Daily Caller, Fox Nation, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Examiner, The Blaze, American Hunter Magazine and ABC News.

He's been a frequent guest on the Fox News Channel and Fox Business Channel as well as many nationally syndicated radio shows across the nation -- which, he believes, officially makes him a super hero.

Giles and his wife Margaret have two daughters: Hannah, who devastated ACORN with her 2009 nation shaking undercover videos, and Regis who is an NRA columnist, huntress and Second Amendment activist.

DG's interests include guns, big game hunting, big game fishing, fine art, cigars, helping wounded warriors, and being a big pain in the butt to people who dislike God and the USA.

"Doug Giles is a good man and his bambinas are fearless. His girls Hannah Giles and Regis Giles are indefatigable. I admire the Giles' from afar."
--Dennis Miller

"Doug Giles must be some kind of a great guy if CNN wants to impugn him."
-- Rush Limbaugh

"Doug Giles is a substantive and funny force for traditional values."
--Ann Coulter

"If one were to somehow genetically merge Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly and Chuck Norris into some monstrous trinity . . . you'd end up with Doug Giles whose rhetoric is as aesthetically displeasing as a fetid lump of dog $#*%."
--Anonymous liberal blogger

"Doug Giles speaks the truth . . . he's a societal watchdog . . . a funny bastard."
--Ted Nugent

It is a very entertaining and quick to read book.

Doug Giles does a fantastic job of encouraging dads to step up to their righteous God-given role as Lord Protector of their household.

This guy is funny and a little crude... but he tells it like it is.

Doug Giles seems to have a double standard. He wants his daughters to be raised to be indomitable (def: impossible to subdue or defeat), and yet his other book "Raising Boys Feminists Will Hate" preaches about how to raise boys so that they are probably able to dominate women... So which is it, Doug?

Click on "Click Here to Look Inside" and read it first to see if you will like the book. He's very opinionated. I like the concepts: teach girls to defend and stand up for themselves, teach them not to be a wuss, teach them to recognize lies and manipulation. However, his delivery is too obnoxious for me.

Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears aren't good role models for young women. I sometimes wonder about their fathers--shouldn't an entertainment show do a program on how the fathers of these fallen stars went wrong? Or, better yet, do a program on what Doug Giles did right; after all, Doug's daughters are outstanding role models. Both are classy, intelligent ladies of action. All that is why I picked up this book. But when I found out--chapter by chapter--how Doug molded his daughters to be all they are, I began recommending this book to parents everywhere. This is not a preachy, passive-voice diatribe; it's an active, fun read that's an antidote to pop-culture's dark side.

Format: Perfect Paperback
Daddy Doug Giles has created a book with sound traditional values for raising daughters that is wrapped in his own unconventional and aggressively honest delivery. This is book that places a long-needed emphasis on fathers to man up on their parental responsibilities. The Giles philosophy will not be popular with the feminists, but then again, that's usually a sign you're on the right track. Giles also gets very real on the issue of teenage sex and the lifelong ramifications of being morally loose in the pursuit of love, respect and inclusion among bottom feeders that are experiencing the apex of their lives as teenagers. Yes, these are the losers.
The author ends the book with an application for permission to date his daughters. It's as knee slapping funny as it is thought provoking. Doug Giles's book, Raising Righteous & Rowdy Girls, is a creative fusion of humor, truth, passion and repetitious violations of political correctness. Yes, there is something endearing about conservatives that don't mince words, who aren't afraid to take the battle to today's liberals with almost reckless abandon. Raising Righteous & Rowdy Girls is a book worthy of any patriot parent's library.

All fathers listen up: if you want to destroy a human life, you're on the right path. This book is perfect for the effeminate man, the timid man, the castrated man. Why? Because no man comfortable with his role as a male and father would ever take this s*** seriously. In layman's terms: if you're comfortable with the size of your package (and know how to use it), you wouldn't even be here.

A great read for any parent. This guy is funny and a little crude... but he tells it like it is. He gives great advice on raising young woman and encourages me as a mother to let my husband do his thing as a father. Once again, I have to accept he will not be a mother to them; he will be a father and I should support that. This book does a great job giving him some guidance and confirmation.

Format: Perfect Paperback
While I applaud Doug Giles for raising two well-adjusted young women who are obviously able to fend for themselves in a tough political world, the writing is so horrible as to make it virtually impossible to get through. This is hard to say given I agree with some of the premise and I'm currently trying to raise my own tough, independent 2 year old daughter (with another on the way). However, the juvenile humor and classless alliteration used to come up with multiple "clever" ways to say "tough girls" gets tedious before the first chapter is over. He does the same thing with the word father. He refers to the reader as the following in just one chapter: Begetter, Father, sperm-donor, pappy, papasan, padre, great pappy (again), Daddy-0, Dad, pa, brother, and dad (again). This is in the span of 4 pages. Refers to daughters as: lass, little girl, female charges, little ones, nippers, chicas, nina, youngster, little darling, little debutante, etc. in the same four pages. I made it through the chapters instructing to teach your daughter how to fight, and how to shoot guns, but while I tried to just write the bad writing in the first chapter off to a poor intro, unfortunately it continued throughout the book.

Again, while I can advocate some if not all of the positions (he never used racist terms to describe rappers, just pointed out that they all look a couple rungs down on the evolutionary chain, which means cro-magnon, not monkey, and if you watch a rapper, it's hard not to agree with the analogy given they can't talk about anything beyond basic animalistic needs: sex, drink/drugs, alpha-male status, etc.) the book as a whole is 140 pages of ideas backed up by horrible writing. I'm sure it would be entertaining to talk to him for an hour on his philosophies on raising daughters, but reading about it is awful.

I will teach my daughters to hunt, defend herself, think freely, not dress like Lady Caca or whatever her name is.

The book says to do that. It even encourages the reading of philosophy and the classics. That's great. It makes good points - "teach your daughter to drink for the right reasons" for example. Right on.

Another point: Raise your daughter to be "healthily suspicious." Well, be suspicious of this book.

Giles black rappers "Darwinian-throwbacks" i.e. monkeys. Seriously? I won't teach my daughter to be a racist. I also don't want to read about how stupid "Dhimmocrats" are every sentence. I didn't buy this book for political rants. I'm pretty middle of the line (or a "squishy wuss" according to Giles). 75% of this book is political rambling. He calls Islam "whacked out" and says we should be free to insult it. Many, many more examples. I will teach my daughter to respect all people, and all religions. That's a good dad's job.

This guy thinks he's pretty hilarious but his writing 'style' is so hard to read because it's so pompous. "Don't be a pirate hooker" is not humor. I like his points, but I won't raise my daughters to be brainwashed by a book like this. Why couldn't he just stick to the point -- how to raise a tough girl? Probably because raising a tough girl is apparently done in one way, his way.

The real point is on page 61.
1 Embrace our faith like never before. 2 Cheer on traditional values... 3) Applaud our own culture. 4) Quit being squishy wusses. 5) Spit out babies and raise them in the Judeo-Christian worldview. 6) Tell foreign invaders to come here correctly or go back to their sucky countries. 7) Revolt against immoral vomit.
