Often the things required to be considered a man--in the truest sense of the word--are passed down from generation to generation, from man to man, by word of mouth or example. Be it a father, grandfather, uncle, brother, or a man from the neighborhood, most men learn how to carry themselves as men from watching other men or hearing other men speak of what it takes to actually be a man. In "The Makings of a Man", Jabari Price, Michael Holoman, and O. Gerard Droze set out to not only put these things in writing, but to deconstruct society's image of a man and explore the reasons behind why characteristics such as planning, communication, checks and balances, leadership, the ability to face life's storms, and consistency are so vitally important to the fully developed man. Whether you're 25 or 95, every male, from time to time, must evaluate himself to be sure they're exhibiting "The Makings of a Man". Whether you are seeking to bolster your own character or strengthen the character of someone else, this book is a must read.
