    It will put hair on your chest

    Brett McKay, the driving force behind the Art of Manliness website and book, has stated that "all great men throughout history, virtually without exception, studied the writings of other great men to broaden their perspective and improve themselves." Here he has put that into practice by writing a book on what he considers the seven manly virtues, filling it with the writings of great men which support or exemplify each of these virtues. Contained within this book with its faux distressed cover and woodcut-style art are the writings of Marcus Aurelius, Aesop, Aristotle, T. Roosevelt, A. Lincoln, Whitman, Thoreau, Emerson, Wordsworth, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Longfellow, and others. Anyone, but especially any man, who wishes to be a better person and live a more virtuous life would benefit from reading this book. It is a work that could be read from cover to cover, or used as a devotional.

    A gem! I savored every chapter.

    The basic virtues are explained through stories - mostly historical - and anecdotes. It's so much more pleasant to learn through stories, and if they're true, the morals are more credible. These virtues made our country great. I am a better person for having read this book.

    Good Book

    I have been following the website for a long time and it's one of my "Go To" websites each morning. I bought the book and was not disappointed. After reading into the first chapter I had to stop, in order to get a pen and start taking notes. This is definitely a book I would read more than once.

    I think this is an excellent buy and would recommend it to everyone.

    Extremely motivational and inspiring. I took my time reading every Virtue, with all the great examples of letters and stories from great men in history, you sort of have to let things sink in before moving on to the next. I feel as if as though I know this book will not be read only once. If you are looking for a read to make you "man up" in the most serious commitment you can make to be a better man, this is not a bad place to start.
