Chuck has a authored several books, and his most recently published title, just in time for the Holiday Gift-giving Season is Prowess: The Man You Were Meant To Be.
Holton answers the question of why now is the moment for this book?
“Men are in trouble. Today’s college applicants are 20% more likely to be female. Marriage rates are declining rapidly. In the most prosperous era in human history, men are three times more likely to commit suicide. A whole subculture of young men, known as “Involuntary Celibates” is now on the FBI’s radar as a terror threat. Even healthy, well-adjusted guys spend so much time interacting with devices that they are losing the ability to have healthy interactions with women.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Grey-haired warriors remember how manhood is supposed to work. This book explores the timeless wisdom of the manly arts as they USED to be, and explains them in concrete terms for today’s passive, milquetoast generation.”
Holton has spent the last thirty years hanging around with the people we call heroes – America’s most elite special operations forces. They MUST be the best because in battle there is no second place. This book explores the methods Tier-1 warriors use to stay at the top of their game and adapts them for the rest of us. For a guy who wants to learn how to get a job, get the girl and live out the mandate of manhood, this book shares the secrets the old lions know. Prowess is about being the best version of the man you were created to be. It’s a book that will help you stand out in a crowd and live a life of meaning and purpose. That’s Prowess.
