Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author and Hollywood producer DeVon Franklin speaks out frankly and openly about why men behave the way they do and what everyone - men and women alike - need to know about it.

We hear it all the time. Men cheat. Men love power. Men love sex. Men are greedy. Men are dogs. But is this the truth about men? 

In this groundbreaking book, DeVon Franklin dishes the real Truth About Men by making the compelling case that men aren’t dogs, but all men share the same struggle. He uses the metaphor of a dog that needs training as a way to explore why behavior persists in men that can lead them to act against their vows, their integrity, and even their character. 

DeVon provides the manual for how men can change, both on a personal and a societal level by providing practical solutions for helping men learn how to resist temptation, how to practice self-control, and how to love. He argues the same discipline that drives men in their professional lives needs to be applied to their private lives. DeVon is also transparent about the challenges he faces daily as he endeavors to “Master the Dog” within. 

But The Truth About Men isn’t just for men. DeVon tells female listeners everything they need to know about men. He offers women a real-time understanding of how men’s struggle affects them, insights that can help them navigate their relationships with men, and information on how to heal from the damage that some misbehaving men may have inflicted. 

This book is a raw, informative, and compelling look at an issue that threatens to tear our society apart, yet it offers a positive way forward for men and women alike.

TRUTH and TRANSPARENCY

Let me begin by saying that I THANK GOD for DeVon Franklin. I expected #TheTruth--that's what I've found in all of his writings; however, I was blown away with the transparency. Truly a man that has learned to master himself and what's needed to maintain a healthy marriage.

OK, full transparency from me. I've been told by dogs that when a man cheats, it has noting to do with the woman, and this book finally convinced me. There are certain women that, I thought, a man would be crazy to cheat on (READ: He did NOT cheat on his wife). I now understand that until the man does the work, he will not ever master the dog.

What I loved most about the book is that there are practical solutions for both men and women, who are willing to do the work.

Well done sir!

Love has boundaries, lust does not.

We all need training and discipline in our lives. This book puts everything in clear concise terms . Ladies our men look to us for guidance.

Great read!!

This book just confirmed a lot about what I have learned about men over the years. I really appreciate Devon’s honesty and transparency from both a man’s and woman’s perspective. I highly recommend reading this boon if you are dating and looking to get married one day. As a woman, I’ve learned to have standards and know my worth; if someone tries to discourage me from having standards I ignore it.

Life Changing Book!

This book has been an absolute blessing to my life! This book has changed my mindset on life and how I pursue my wife moving forward in my single life! I have gained practical tips on how to control my Dog(Flesh) inside of me and allow God(Master) to help me get through moments where I will fall into sexual sin. I was able to get an understanding on how men are raised and what we are taught and how to reverse that mindset and share wisdom to younger men on controlling lustful desires for women! This will help so many people in life and release them from stress in broken relationships and into freedom to coexist among each other in a healthy way!

Amazing!!

I loved this book because Devon’s use of the dog versus master analogy was spot on and helped me as the reader to understand men better.
I loved the candor and examples used and I can say from my own life experience as a woman and a believer, what he says is true. In addition, the book not only covers love aspects but can be applied in all aspects of our lives.
I would recommend this book to all the men in my life and women as well that we set high standards for ourselves and for the significant others in our lives.
I chose the rating because it’s true that the overall book was amazing, I enjoyed every listen, the story and performances. I’m actually going to listen it for a second time after this review!
Being born and having grown up in Kenya, with some traditions that encourage men to do some things that demean women and where women are now being empowered to speak out and encouraged to raise standards for the men they choose to be with, I believe this book will help even more for women and men to be more self aware of how much their actions and how they treat each other impacts other generations to come through parenting especially.
I shared the acceptance prayers for women and men with my friends and one male friend actually confirmed that he’s guilty of those things and I hope that the prayer will also bring some comfort and strength to my female friend, that’s going through a messy breakup.
Thank you!!
