Better yet, turn on one-click. You will want to get this book as soon as possible. I have (as my son likes to joke) 972 books on being a dad. Many are good, some are excellent, but I wish I had bought this one first. It's that good. It will motivate you to be the dad all the other 972 books tell you how to be.
How? Quite simply, Farrar writes like he knows exactly where you are. You may anywhere from what he describes as being spiritually anorexic or bulimic, or you may be a "point man" - it doesn't matter. He will help you along to the next level. He is realistic enough to recognize that after 25 years of bad habits, you most likely won't be reformed overnight. However, he offers good encouragement to keep at it, do what you know God created you to do.
Chapter like "Real Men Don't" and "A One-Woman Kind of Man" will leave many men uncomfortable. Guys, I think too many of us are a "husband of one wife" physically but are cheating mentally or even emotionally, or at least are just not dedicated enough to living our lives God's way. Farrar will encourage you to not just be a husband of one wife, but to be the kind of guy God wants you to be as a matter of total lifestyle. As the book of James points out, "when lust has conceived, it gives birth to sin." I think many of us can relate.
Although it does have some material on being a father (such as chapters 2, 9, and 10), it's not primarily a book on being a dad. I think Farrar has his priorities in the right place: you can't be a Good Dad until you are a Good and Godly Man. Then come back and read Farrar's "King Me" or one of the 972 other good books on being a dad.
Really, the book will probably not really give you any new information. So why get it? Because it will reinforce what you knew to be true, and will (perhaps, with God's help) help you to not just be a hearer of the word, but a doer as well.

I really enjoyed the content of Point Man by Steve Farrar. I belong to a small group of leaders that read a book a month to further our leadership. Point Man has been one of my favorites so far. Any man that has a wife, want a wife, have kids or want kids, needs to read this book or listen to the audio discs like I did. I am also in full time ministry as a youth pastor, which anyone knows who is in the ministry, you don't have a whole lot of time. I have to spent most of my reading time in the Word of God, so I gets a little complicated having to read a whole book every month. The CDs helped so much and the narration was very professional and great to listen to.
Dr. Ferrar has a unique gift Jun 18, 2008
Dr. Steve Ferrar has a gift that I have never seen any man have before. He can tell us men what makes us tick and why we do things in a way that makes it so easy to understand. This guy is the real deal and he has had his own struggles. That says to me that he has credibility and can relate to the things that I am facing.
If you ever get a chance to hear Steve speak, make sure you don't miss it. He speaks frequently in Frisco, Texas, not far from Dallas.
Point Man By Steve Farrar. Apr 8, 2008
Point Man is a must read for ALL men. It is timeless and to the point. It is a book on not just being a leader, but being a leader of the family. We need to have more men be accountable for their actions. This book will lead you in your roles as a husband and father. It will help you understand just how important you are to the family. Real men read this book.
This can really hurt a family, REALLY! Feb 29, 2008
This is scary bad. Our small group-study at church is going through this, and it's making me sick. The men's-group is rallying around this like it's a miracle answer to all of their family issues, but it's just smoke. The author is NOT teaching relationship skills, but just rules for a plutocratic relationship. There's so much more to being a family leader then just having testicles and a bible.
