Where does Knights in Training rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
While I've listened to well over a hundred audio books, this book is unique, and cannot be compared to most that to which I have listened.
What other book might you compare Knights in Training to and why?
Boys Adrift. Knights in Training identifies many of the problems into which young manhood today has fallen, as does Boys Adrift. However, Knights in Training goes on to suggest a concise plan of action for parents dealing with those challenges.
Have you listened to any of Heather Haupt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not previously listened to another performance of Heather Haupt. I am not usually in favor of authors reading their own works, as a gifted writer does not necessarily translate into a gifted narrator, but Mrs. Haupt can both write and narrate well, and because of the passion she brings to the topic, she is the ideal narrator for Knights in Training.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No extreme reaction. It did make me laugh, having grown up in a family of boys, and now trying to raise a boy.
Any additional comments?
I strongly urge anyone raising boys to listen to or read this book. Most parents do not recognize the degree to which their boys are under fire from several sides. Consequently, boys and young men, and even some older ones, flounder in modern society. Heather advocates a revolution to restore to men, young and old, their societal value and dignity, and their prospects for personal happiness and fulfillment.
Thank you Heather. You have delivered a very timely antidote for some of the very serious ills currently plaguing our nation.

From the moment I started listening to this I just wanted to focus solely on it. I kept making bookmarks for my husband to listen to and for me to specifically remember certain bits. I've recommended it to every boy mom I know.
When I started reading this book I went into it with curiosity but feeling that I was reading just another boy mom book. But Heather's voice is just so personable. You can tell that these things she put into practice with her boys built her up instead of wearing her down with more to do. It made me get excited about stepping out in another boy adventure and as a mom with four boys I'm in the thick of it. I wanted to try it all. I kept telling my boys about what I was listening to and what I was excited about putting into practice with them. They would ask everyday if I had finished the knight book yet. We are all excited to start this adventure. It's been a wonderful change for our home... And it's not wearing me out! Thank you Heather.
