"New York Times" best-selling author Stephen Mansfield explores the manly virtues by looking to the lives of the manliest of men.
Masculinity is more than an identity. It's a discipline--something requiring cultivation. For that we need the help of many teachers, mentors, fathers, and brothers. In "Mansfield's Book of Manly Men," "New York Times" bestselling author Stephen Mansfield introduces readers to thirty such figures. Some are soldiers, some are philosophers, some inventors, revolutionaries, adventurers, preachers--and they all have something unique to teach us about manliness:
- Vision, " told through the story of "Rudyard Kipling
- Humor, " told through the story of "G. K. Chesterton
- Power, " told through the story of "George Washington
- Conquest, " told through the story of "Nehemiah
In each chapter, Stephen Mansfield tells their stories and distills from the events, the challenges, and triumphs a key lesson that will show readers how to grow into one unique aspect of the calling as men.
Mansfield won't tell you how to tie a tie, change a flat, or handle your mother-in-law, but through the featured lives he will tell you how to think, strive, hope, pray, work, and act like a man and invite you into a new and greater story.
