Wise Guys – Book Review

Wise Guys book review by Clay Herd

Wise Guys is a book revolving around targeting and finding wise people whose life you would like to emulate and then surrounding yourself with them. I think that the tag line of the book perfectly describes what this book encourages; “unlocking hidden wisdom from the men around you.”.

Wise Guys takes it from both sides and shows not only how one can find a mentor, but also as I was reading it, I was gaining how I can be a better mentor. As I am at the point in both my life and ministry where I have become a mentor to a few, this book has given me valuable insight into how to better equip the next coming generation.

From the beginning Wise Guys breaks down different skills from the first chapter of “figuring yourself out” to the most important chapter, I felt, which was how to correct gently. Wise Guys is a book that will inhabit a great place on your bookshelf next to Dale Carnegie’s Win Friend’s and Influence People. With a great plethora of knowledge, this book will make you think about the way you mentor, and if you don’t have a mentor, to seek one.
