By William J. Bennett
Raising boys to become men has never been easy, but today it seems particularly tough. The young and old need heroes to embody the eternal qualities of manhood: honor, duty, valor, and integrity. This book points the way, offering a positive, encouraging, uplifting, realizable idea of manhood.
Using profiles, stories, letters, poems, essays, historical vignettes, and myths to bring his subject to life, The Book of Man defines what a man should be, how he should live, and to what he should aspire in several key areas of life: war, work, leisure, and more.
Quotes span the time from Pericles to Colin Powell, while the characters range from Robert Murray M’Cheyne to Jimmy Carter. The book also includes inspiring stories about men such as Theodore Roosevelt and Martin Luther King, Jr.
