Publisher's Summary

As a leader in teaching, training, and transforming boys in Detroit, Jason Wilson shares his own story of discovering what it means to “be a man” in this life-changing memoir.

His grandfather’s lynching in the deep South, the murders of his two older brothers, and his verbally harsh and absent father all worked together to form Jason Wilson’s childhood. But it was his decision to acknowledge his emotions and yield to God’s call on his life that made Wilson the man and leader he is today.

As the founder of one of the country’s most esteemed youth organizations, Wilson has decades of experience in strengthening the physical, mental, and emotional spirit of boys and men. In Cry Like a Man, Wilson explains the dangers men face in our culture’s definition of “masculinity” and gives listeners hope that healing is possible.

As Wilson writes, “My passion is to help boys and men find strength to become courageously transparent about their own brokenness as I shed light on the symptoms and causes of childhood trauma and ‘father wounds’. I long to see men free themselves from emotional incarceration - to see their minds renewed, souls weaned, and relationships restored.”

Emotional Incarceration

Don't let the title of the book fool you to believe that it just for men. I believe this book should be intended for Single moms raising a young man, Fathers needing love from their father, women facing domestic violence the impact. As a single mom, of a black young man its hard at time. The book should be renamed "Emotional Incarceration" because we all have demons that hunts us in the past presence and future if we don't deal with the issue. The best part, is the bible verse that gave you guidance. Mr. Wilson stay you your path young man. Nicole stay strong sista, you are a incredible strong woman

Very Touching

This book touched my soul. As an African American there are so many things we go through especially a black man. Thank you for writing your life and giving it to your readers. This was a great read.

ENCOURAGING, INSPIRING!

I found Jason’s story to be quite healing and hope-inspiring too. Many men in today’s society can identify with father wounds therefore, this book would be very helpful to them. This is a narrative that many more should hear about!

HEARTFELT!

An awesome account of a man's journey through emotional development... It challenges what it is to be a "strong" man or a "real" man. This was a great listen! 🖤

A MEN'S MUST READ!

I'm in no way religious and yes this book is grounded in his faith but the message within this book transcends his spiritual alignment it asks you to look within yourself in order to begin your healing process as a MALE young or old
