Steve Perry does an incredible job pointing to the REAL issues concerning our Black youth. He doesn't pull any punches as he challenges each and every institution and encourages them to "Man Up" and begin to take responsibility to try to save the next generations of Black men. Excellent book for anyone concerned about future cultural stability.

Man Up! will become required reading for black Americans (young & old) in the sphere of my influence. This book delivers truth, problems, realities, and common sense solutions to the ills of the ebony community. Where did the brother find the wisdom, inspiration, and most of all the courage to say what needs to be said? We are destroying ourselves and must take corrective action now. This book is a manifesto and valuable first steps reading to a positive living in the right direction.

The book was very direct in confronting the issues that people of color struggle with on a daily basis. The book also brought out some strong points that need to be addressed immediately by all people.I found it to be a good read, and shared it with others that I know.

I am a 59 year old black male and Vietnam Vet. So far, I have only browsed through the book and I can't find the words to express how impressed with this young man Steve Perry. At first, I thought only Bill Cosby was the only black man to tell it like it is.

To borrow a phrase from Fannie Lou Hamer, " I am sick and tired of being sick and tired" of the poverty pimps i.e. Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, (hate monger) Farrakan, ( emperor/crackhead) Marion Barry) etc.)

Thank you very, very much Mr. Perry.

I confess, I'm not much of a book worm, I tend to do most of my reading on-line -- This book, I read in two days!
The facts are clear; we in the black community are in crisis! My heart aches, wondering how we will correct the many issues that plague us.
Mr. Perry does an expert, incredibly honest job at pointing out both the issues and providing salient solutions.
It truly is up to us in the Black community to help ourselves. No more pointing fingers; no more relying on the same old broken methods of the past.
Well, this was supposed to be a book review. Bottom line, EVERY SINGLE black person
Should read take to heart the simple, but profound methods offered in this book. Well done Mr. Perry, keep up the important efforts.

Steve Perry doesn't mince words. He encourages people to take responsibility for the things that are under their control. There are problems in society and all of us need to work to make things better. Well-written!

A good look at the state of the black community. That needs to be addressed more publicly. This book is hard hitting and funny. I couldn't agree more. Only if we black people would stop acting like this is some little secret among us and come out against the distructive habits that have us in this position, we could start to turn our condition around. Keep telling the truth brother!!!
