About the Author

Anthony T. Edwards, former executive trainer and "train-the-trainer" for the Department of Homeland Security, Defense Department and major defense and consulting contractors, has spent more than 18 years teaching men and women to reach their full potential. While serving in the U.S. Navy from 1975 to 1995, Edwards trained corporate executives and military leaders in quality and process management techniques, and he continues to do so today. Edwards has taught thousands of professionals and students in diverse settings, from military and federal agencies to Consulting and Fortune 500 defense contractors Raytheon Co. and Northrop Grumman Corp. He retired from the military as a station Command Quality Advisor, Manager of the Command Training Team, and Assistant Total Quality Manager. Additionally, Edwards was also a single father who successfully raised his children to adulthood while also attending college. Through his military, business, corporate, and life experience, Edwards has uniquely identified a breakdown of male confidence and influence over the past 40 years-a crippling trend that has left men without a clear definition of manhood and with a weakened sense of control in their own lives. His approach to this issue, and his method for guiding men to recover their all-important controlling factor, has been sharpened through decades of trial and error in his own life and in the lives of those he has coached, taught, directed and mentored. Edwards graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics. He is a qualified trainer of Total Quality Management, Six Sigma and Lean, problem solving, analysis and process improvement applications and techniques. He has practiced martial arts for 13 years, including Okinawa Kenpo, Shorin Ryu and Monkey Kung Fu. Edwards has previously published articles including "Change Requires Planning, Acceptance & Consistency" and "Use The Total Quality Approach In Your Journey Towards Excellence" in California's Golden Eagle newspaper. A poet and spoken-word artist, Edwards performs under the stage name PoeticSynergy and has appeared at venues in the U.S., Canada and Europe. He currently resides with his wife and best friend, Autumn, south of Atlanta, GA.

Format: Paperback
"It's amazing how life has continued to misdeal our social, and cultural impressions of what it takes to be a "Man", or better yet, what are the necessary tools that absolutely DO NOT get passed on from the legacies of Fathers and Sons, which can better prepare those already Grown Men and most importantly, our Young Men, with the necessary tools, insight, and wisdom's of "Been there, done that with disastrous effects or great successes, victorious gains or traumatic failures, enjoying the perfect relationship with a woman or going through a series of failed relationships and marriages, enjoying the joys of fatherhood or passing on the responsibility to the mother, while contributing to being another dead-beat-dad..." This highly useful reference book is definitely NOT your typical self-help..." the author Anthony T. Edwards explains.

FOR MEN ONLY: The Man, The Controlling Factor addresses both modern men and young males that are stumbling through a reality they no longer exclusively control, as well as focusing on a man's internal struggles, while educating them on how to establish their inner "Controlling Factor (CF)." How to take control of self in an out of control world, with focus on communication, self-improvement, self-esteem, and self-confidence, the responsibilities as a husband partner, father, mentor and even a professional.

In 37 years of experience, Anthony T. Edwards has spent more than 18 years teaching men and women to reach their full potential. He's taught thousands of professionals and students in diverse settings, from military to federal agencies and Fortune 500 defense contractors, and finalizing his military career as a single father who successfully raised his children while also attending college.
