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.

    " Not exactly meant for reading in one sitting, but it did have some great stories, essays, and poetry espousing an ideal of manhood that involves service, kindness, work, wholesome competition, and family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kathleen | 6/9/2013

    " This was a more scholarly book than I anticipated. The message is a good one - good men are raised, they don't just happen. The last couple of chapters are a tribute to Bennett's father-in-law, which was incredibly sweet. "

    " Awesome book! This book is not a novel. Each chapter is a stand alone chapter many of them only one or two pages. I thought it was great. I went and bought a copy for each of my sons and for each of my daughters husbands. "

    " Disappointed. The readings did not seem to flow one to another naturally. The best section was Man In Prayer and Reflection. I do have to say that poetry is not my enjoyment. "
