Manliness in the modern era is worth learning about and the dividends will pay off for a lifetime. Not only will you bring joy to all those around you, you’ll be happier, too. Once you master this, you’ll live the good life.

In his words, “You can choose to be great; clothing has sizes but style does not.”
