Modern men are in a crisis according to Stephen Mansfield, in his latest book entitled Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men. The crisis is found in men who don’t take responsibility for the children they father, and in the increasing number of men entrapped in the criminal justice system. The cause of this crisis can be found in the changing role of men resulting from the feminist movement and the absence of positive male role models in most modern families. In the book Mansfield describes what it takes to be a manly man, and how, through the example of many men throughout history, average men have overcome challenges to become great men who lead nations and change the course of world events. He presents the characteristics of manly men, and how every man should strive to become manly men of character.

Particularly inspiring are the backgrounds of Harry Truman and Winston Churchill. These two men came from different backgrounds and suffered many failures throughout life, to lead their nations through the Second World War. Harry Truman, didn’t have a formal education like most modern American presidents, but became more knowledgeable and wise through self-study and becoming an insatiable reader. Through the examples of these great men, Mansfield shows how today’s men can also achieve greatness.

Mansfield's Book of Manly Men, offers what it promises: an explanation of what true masculinity and manliness looks like, at least in Mansfield's opinion. In a world where manliness and masculinity are often frowned upon, books like this are always pretty refreshing even when I don't agree with everything they have to say.

Perhaps one of the most important elements of this book is that it doesn't condone the feminist movement by encouraging men to be more like women, nor does it ask men to behave in ways that women find appealing. Instead, this book is an urging for men to return to godly manliness, to stand up for what the believe in, to behave honorably, and to do the right thing even when it's difficult.

This book also contains plenty of quotes, stories, and historical fun facts to keep things interesting. If you're looking for a book to use in a class discussion, there are plenty of study questions included.

Mansfield's is separated into two sections. The first includes his maxims. This section gives a thorough overview of what being a man generally entails and what Mansfield believes makes a man manly and masculine. The second section includes trademarks of masculinity, including friendship, integrity, and forgiveness. Each chapter gives an overview of what this trademark looks like, includes discussion questions, and often a poem or Psalm. There are pictures throughout the book, as well.

I'd suggest this for teenagers or young men who aren't really sure what they want to be or how they want to behave, but who want to make a difference in the lives of the people around them. If you're looking for something that's going to help build character, this book is a good starting point.

To be a man is to: ? The age old adage goes one way or another depending on who you ask. For those who fought to protect their country’s freedom, manliness lies in sacrifice, tears, and bloodshed. For another it may be in exploring unknown frontiers, uncovering what has not been seen. And for yet another, loving a woman is their definition of manhood.

Each man knows, however, that manliness is not encapsulated by a singular definition. That would be like describing a tree simply as tall; while omitting its fruit, leaves, provision of shade, or texture. In the same way, men are made up of a plethora of qualities.

Intro, Stephen Mansfield, stage left. Mansfield’s wonderfully titled Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men purposes to resurrect “your inborn, timeless, essential, masculine self.” Listing four “Manly Maxims” and sixteen attributes that collectively define manliness Mansfield calls out to men who are aiming to restore the original image of man to their life.

Being a man has always been a goal of mine. Having the XY chromosome is not enough. I want to crochet a scarf, and wear it while I climb a 14k mountain. I want to read a poem to woo a beautiful woman (You can find her on twitter @robynmederich). I want to prepare a meal and eat it at a table and chairs that I also built. All of these things are manly, but they aren’t enough. A man doesn’t comprise of external affairs only. A man will find himself complete when he combines external adventures with internal traits.

Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men is a great guide for men of any station in life. White collar, blue collar, no collar; men from all can gain from this book.

Call me crazy but I believe the book has been intentionally designed to bring reading pleasure to a man.
