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."

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.

Can’t hide the religious angle

The author tries real hard in the final chapter on spirituality, which every true man must have apparently, to not focus on Christianity. However, he has already peppered his religious convictions throughout the book. I agree with the author that a man should limit his use of porn, but completely disagree with his argument. His argument that porn is similar to drug addiction, the user needs more and more, is backed by zero legitimate research. In fact it was an argument used by a conservative right legislature a few years back. I would also propose that most porn actresses, dancers, sex workers would disagree with one of his primary tenets, that porn is degrading to women. If brought up a conservative Christian one would probably think this.

I have to agree with another reviewer, if your going to dictate an interview, get another voice in there or change yours up some. I mean, your wife wrote and read your introduction.

My personal recommendations for Manning Up lit:
Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink
No More Mr Nice Guy by Robert O’Keefe
The Rational Male by Rollo Tomassi

Misleading religious book

Lots of Jesus talk in this one. Description is VERY MISLEADING. Written for ex-emo kids becoming adults. Audiobook tip: if you interview someone at least hire an actor to say the lines. Don't play both parts

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.
