Finally. Someone has said what needs to be said. May 22, 2012
Bennett has done it again. I did not think that The Book of Virtues could ever have an equal, and yet here it is. Our feminized men are a sad lot, not only because they have been raised to be ineffectual and indecisive, but also because they lack purpose and the ability to protect women and children. There is no better way to help guide young boys than by example. This well-written book helps those not only responsible for the raising of boys, but those who feel deep in their manly soul that something is missing.....and that is the conviction that being a man is complex, it is hard, it is sometimes not very convenient. Kudos, Dr. Bennett - I wish this were on every family's bookshelf in America.

Horrible Book Filled with Nonsense March 16, 2012
One could wonder how someone could write such a long winded diatribe citing endless made up statistics and complete nonsense past off as facts; Dr. William J. Bennett manages this quite effortlessly in his book 'The Book of Man'. The conclusion of the book is that all men should conform to some preconceived idea of morality and militaristicaly impose that morality on other men for their own good.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A MAN
Raising up men has never been easy, but today is seems particularly tough. The young and old need heroes to embody the eternal qualities of manhood: honor, duty, valor, and integrity. In The Book of Man, William J. Bennett points the way, offering a positive, encouraging, uplifting, realizable idea of manhood, redolent of history and human nature, and practical for contemporary life.
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. "Whether we take up the sword, the plow, the ball, the gavel, our children, or our Bibles," says Bennett, "we must always do it like the men we are called to be." The Book of Man shows how.
