The Art of Manliness: Manvotionals

The Art of Manliness: Manvotionals by Brett McKay

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I must concur with a previous review of this title in that this is not one book, but this is a thousand books.

Throughout my (relatively short) life I have aspired to be more than what a situation may require, but had been left somewhat blind in how to do so. This book has filled in some of those gaps and addressed the answers to questions I didn’t even know how to ask.

If you have any interest in the standards that great men have written for themselves since time immemorial, then this book will satisfy that interest.

I found it to address the values that we all ought to be striving towards, to express clearly the fact that the same questions we may ask ourselves today have indeed been asked and answered by the wisdom of generations before us.

This book was a vibrant reminder that most, if not all, of the problems that we humans face today have already been experienced by hundreds of generations and millions of people before us. It is only from learning from their findings and learnings that we can ourselves learn and benefit ourselves by.

I cannot speak of how this book may appeal to women, but as a man I wholeheartedly recommend this book and can definitively say that it has changed me forever. I will definitely be revisiting as the years pass in order to see things with new perspectives and understanding. This book is one that is paid most justice through its study, and I cannot wait for the time I sit down with it again.

Highly recommended!
