    "A must have for any aspiring gentleman"

    This book is a wonderful resource on the much neglected side of the ideal gentleman, the "Gentlemanly Virtues" Without virtue, etiquette and politeness is just empty form. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to any aspiring gentleman.....

    "All men should listen to this"

    Made me proud to be a man. It been along time since someone said you should proud to be man and being a man can be a noble thing if we work at it.

    "Best advice in the last 3000 years."

    Man-up son.
    Only the hard, only the strong. But these were no knuckle dragging brutes.
    Every quote a nugget. Every man a diamond.

    "Just Quotes, No Content. Save Your Credit!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the authors would have actually written original content.


    Has The Art of Manliness - Manvotionals turned you off from other books in this genre?

    n/a


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Massive Disappointment. I thought the authors were going to give me some insight, or even examples of manliness, but instead it was hours of quotes.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I had my credit back :(

    "History Meets Manliness"
    What did you love best about The Art of Manliness - Manvotionals?

    I have been following Brett McKay's blog for quite some time now. This book truly grasps the finer points of what it means to be manliness, and insight into Brett's mind of beginning AoM, by tying together numerous historical references. One will gain great value by listening, or reading, Manvotionals to be directed by some of the most manliest of men throughout times. If you are a fan of the AoM blog then I would highly recommend this as an expansion of The Library of Man Knowledge.

    A great book to learn how to become a better father, husband, and all around man's man.

    "Great book scarred by terrible narration"

    I loved this book as much as I possibly could considering the narration.

    Not that the narrator sounds terrible, which he does, but also that, due to the style of the book, while listening, you cannot decipher if it is the actual writer "speaking" or a quote or reading from one of the philosophers of great writers.

    Makes for a difficult follow.
    Sadly, this hurt the overall experience.
    Content was excellent though.

    "man up!"

    loved this, each writing reinforced previous and then we'll put together with good commentary. With the narration you can't help but be inspired to man up!

    "Raising the Standard of Manhood"

    I found this to be very insightful and introspective. It illustrates the best virtues of men throughout history. I have actually taken time to memorize many of the passages.
