Conduct Becoming A Man: Handbook On How to Behave and Why

by J. Allen Hood

The young man’s guide to handling life’s challenges from a decidedly masculine perspective.

Increasingly, adolescent boys are growing up with no appreciable male influence. With single motherhood and the overwhelming predominance of women in teaching positions, many boys have no one at home or school they can relate to.

Do you know a boy without a positive male role model? How about a young man who could benefit from a simple and concise explanation of the common challenges young men face and the traditional masculine mindset evolved to tackle them?

Some of the chapters you’ll find inside: Weakness, Fear, Bullying, Fighting, School, Love, Mom, Dad, Heroes, Girls and Money.

What you won’t find: Bullshit, pandering and apologies.

“Half of us are born male, yet no one is born a man. It takes effort and determination. You don’t luck into it, you can’t buy it, and it doesn’t matter who your dad is. You decide to conduct yourself a certain way. You take the hard right over the easy wrong. You earn it.”
