Where Have All the Men Gone?

"Be a Man!!!" the coach yells, but does anyone ever stop to tell the 13 year old boy how to be a man?  That's the question William Bennett posed earlier this week on Focus on the Family, and his book The Book of Man (which I got for free from, I heart this program ) answers this question clearly.

Ask any man today what it means to "be a man" and most have a hard time verbalizing what true masculinity is, even if they are a "true man" themselves.  This book is a behemoth of resources that can be read cover to cover, or piece meal.  It truly is a fabulous resource of anecdotes  letters, poems, historical accounts, legends, and more celebrating true masculinity (insert Tim Allen Tool Time grunt here).

I can't wait to share some of these accounts with my son and daughters when they're older to show them what true men look like.  It takes a man to train men, and this celebration of histories of these true men is a must for everyone's library.
