Good Men Project

GoodMen.jpgOK, this isn't about shaving, but it does apply to men, and it's an important topic.

Men, if you haven't heard of this excellent mission, do yourself a favor and grab a copy of the Good Men Project book (and soon to be a DVD as well). The book examines what it's like to be a man today, through a series of essays by men from all walks of life.

"The Good Men Project: Real Stories from the Front Lines of Modern Manhood is a collection of first-person stories about what it means to be a man in America today -- from Pulitzer winners and Poet Laureates to ex-cons, Pro Football Hall of Famers and just regular guys. The authors describe their defining challenges, losses and triumphs through honest and simple truths, and are hoping to spark conversations about what it means to be a good man today."

"The stories in The Good Men Project are powerful, poignant, funny, and courageous. The book has what few other books dealing with the subject of what it means to be a man in today's society have: balls." - David Kohan, creator and executive producer of Will and Grace

The Good Men Project has a home online, as well as a series of videos (most recently a visit to Sing Sing prison), and all the money from sales goes to a charitable corporation dedicated to helping organizations that provide educational, social, financial or legal support to men and boys at risk.

Another book that would go well with the Good Men Project is the Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man, so think about picking up both at the same time.
