Publisher's Summary

Trust me: the world doesn’t need a bunch of BFFs with beards.

I’ve watched men change from confident, decisive, and action-oriented lions to second-guessing, scared-of-their-shadows, don’t-rock-the-boat mice. They don’t feel confident in relationships, work environments - or anywhere. Men are either looking for something or running from something; maybe a bit of both.

Well, it’s time to stop running. It’s time to "man up" to face the real issues.

Being a real man is about being true to yourself first. It means finding strength from living authentically and then sharing that strength with others. Being a real man means understanding who you are and how to influence the world for the better. A real man is an asset to those around him. He doesn’t have to take charge, but he leads the charge, and people want to join in. A real man draws people in. In fact, he is completely irresistible.

Men may feel like they have lost the permission they once had to be men, but I’m here to tell you that you don’t need permission. You don’t need anyone authorizing you to be who you were meant to be. It’s time to stop trying to please everyone else. It’s time to stop apologizing for thinking like a man, acting like a man, and being a man.

It’s time to Man Up!

Yes - MUST READ! Highest Recommendation!

If you have a man in your life ... make sure he reads this! Life changing! If there was an option to rate this higher than 5-stars...I would. (It should go to 11!)

My highest recommendation to all men to not only read...but to internalize, embody, and implement in their lives!

Every guy should take the experience and wisdom from this book, and step-up & execute in your daily life.

For example:

"Excuses get easier to default to each time you use them. The value I placed on my goal was higher than not achieving it."

"Over time, small, insignificant choices add up to big results, either good or bad ... Think of the word 'because.' By simply using this word in a specific way, it can change your habits. Use 'because' to attach value to why you are doing it. I go to bed earlier now because I want to show my boys that their dad takes the time to take care of himself."

We are men

Such a great reaffirming book. I thought I had a good grasp on what a guy really was and the key points are laid out expertly in this book.

Good — but quite religious

The opinions in this book are quite decent and helpful, but if you are familiar with religious backgrounds you will notice that many of the advice is riddled with religious bias. Still a good read and great audio by the author.

Great book, could use 2 narrators for interviews

Loved it. Only suggestion would be that the "interviews" not be done by the same narrator. It was confusing have both the interviewer and interviewee both in the same voice. I never knew who was talking. Over all great though.

Excellent Man fuel

Loved the book! It was very concise and I believe covers a lot of the issues surrounding the decline of manhood within todays society. It addressed the most fundamental principle that God Should be the foundation of a man's life and What the basics of being a man in the world today should look like.

Advice on real manhood

Great book on manhood without all the emotional fluff other books are filled with. Real down to earth advice about how to be a man in the traditional sense.
