Reviews
"If you are the parent of a boy--especially a dad--this is the book you have been waiting for, the book you need. Gouveia, who has three sons, has thought deeply and sometimes uncomfortably about his own masculine identity and how it informs his fatherhood. His insightful, enlightened, practical guidance will help you raise not only 'good' but in fact the very best of men!"
--Peggy Orenstein, New York Times bestselling author of Boys & Sex

"Whether we admit it or not, every guy struggles with the question of what it means to be a man. With good humor and practical advice, Aaron Gouveia tackles the question head-on in this unflinching but tender account of his own journey through the minefield of masculinity to become a better husband, dad, and human. The perfect read for any father or father-to-be." --Michael Ian Black, New York Times bestselling author, actor, and comedian

"This book is gold! Not only is this a great parenting book, but it's a great book about life in general. Raising Boys to be Good Men is a fun, hard-hitting, enjoyable read that will make people rethink how they're raising their tiny humans in today's world." --Doyin Richards, bestselling author of What's the Difference and Daddy Doin' Work

"How refreshing to see a man, and dad of three sons, take on the 'restrictive bullshit that's been choking boys forever' and teaching them a different way." --Upworthy

"Aaron has been an important voice in the online parenting community for years, and he delivers this important message with his characteristic bluntness, passion, and erudition. He'll call out anyone's behavior--including his own--to make sure his three sons inhabit a world with a healthier appreciation for what men can and should be. And we'll all be better for it." --Doug French, co-founder of Dad 2.0
