Early in the book, Mansfield talks about his experience in Syria – and the way his new middle eastern friends celebrate manhood. When a man has a son, he gets a new name…. Mansfield’s friends found out he had a son, and immediately had a party for him on the rooftop, giving him a new name.
Mansfield addresses the role of manhood in our culture, and identifies a great list of manly men throughout history – some manly because of physical strength and great deeds – others for their wisdom and courage.
I loved the quotes, the bios, and the poems that he included in the book.
It’s a good read, and it will inspire you to greatness.
