Publisher's Summary

Bringing chivalry back into our modern-day world, this book shows us how to inspire today's generation of young boys to pursue honor, courage, and compassion.
In an age when respect and honor seem like distant and antiquated relics, how can we equip boys to pursue valor and courageously put the needs of others before their own? This book helps parents to inspire their boys by captivating their imagination and honoring their love for adventure. Heather Haupt explores how knights historically lived out various aspects of the knights' Code of Chivalry, as depicted in the French epic Song of Roland, and how boys can embody these same ideals now. When we issue the challenge and give boys the reasons why it is worth pursuing, we step forward on an incredible journey toward raising the kind of boys who, just like the knights of old, make an impact in their world now and for the rest of their lives.
Bonus PDF included with Knights in Training resources and book recommendations.

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.
