My Take on the Book
This was a fun book that will truly challenge your manliness. In going through the book itself you will be amazed at what you do not a man. I loved the different components of the nine chapters as it made me think outside of the box and learn a large amount about myself personally and about myself as a man. This was a fun book that any man will enjoy reading!
