The Book of Man: Readings on the Path to Manhood | [Dr. William J Bennett]

The Book of Man: Readings on the Path to Manhood

New York Times best-selling author William J. Bennett uses stories, essays, historical vignettes, and contemporary profiles to explore and explain what it means to be a man. Fashioning men has never been easy, but today it seems particularly tough. Boys need heroes to embody the everlasting qualities of manhood: honor, duty, valor, and integrity. Without such role models, boys will naturally choose perpetual childhood over the rigors of becoming a man-as many women, teachers, coaches, employers, and adults in authority can quickly attest.

Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author William J. Bennett uses stories, essays, historical vignettes, and contemporary profiles to explore and explain what it means to be a man. Fashioning men has never been easy, but today it seems particularly tough. Boys need heroes to embody the everlasting qualities of manhood: honor, duty, valor, and integrity. Without such role models, boys will naturally choose perpetual childhood over the rigors of becoming a man-as many women, teachers, coaches, employers, and adults in authority can quickly attest. Too many boys and men waste time in pointless and soulless activities, unmindful of their responsibilities, uncaring in their pursuits. Have we forgotten how to raise men, how to lead our boys into manhood?

In The Book of Man, Bennett charts a clearer course, offering a positive, encouraging, uplifting, realizable idea of manhood, redolent of history and human nature, and practical for contemporary life. Like his classic, The Book of Virtues, Bennett uses profiles, stories, letters, poems, and myths to bring his subject to life, defining what a man should be, how he should live, and to what he should aspire in several key areas of life.

    "What Every young man should learn"
    Where does The Book of Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a very long book because it is filled with a collection of many works and stories. Although very long, it is the Readers Digest Version of what it means to be a man. Bill does his best to give the reader many points of view while exposing the reader to the wisdom of God and Man about what makes us men.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The reading was very good and clear. It is not a story, so it will bore those who are looking for that; but if you are seeking to improve your knowledge and understanding, this is an excellent book.
