Summary

Trust me: the world doesn’t need a bunch of BFFs with beards.

I’ve watched men change from confident, decisive, and action-oriented lions to second-guessing, scared-of-their-shadows, don’t-rock-the-boat mice. They don’t feel confident in relationships, work environments - or anywhere. Men are either looking for something or running from something; maybe a bit of both.

Well, it’s time to stop running. It’s time to "man up" to face the real issues.

Being a real man is about being true to yourself first. It means finding strength from living authentically and then sharing that strength with others. Being a real man means understanding who you are and how to influence the world for the better. A real man is an asset to those around him. He doesn’t have to take charge, but he leads the charge, and people want to join in. A real man draws people in. In fact, he is completely irresistible.

Men may feel like they have lost the permission they once had to be men, but I’m here to tell you that you don’t need permission. You don’t need anyone authorizing you to be who you were meant to be. It’s time to stop trying to please everyone else. It’s time to stop apologizing for thinking like a man, acting like a man, and being a man.

It’s time to Man Up!

common sense advice from essential oil salesman

The first few chapters of this book we're alright, but it rapidly goes down a spiritual and business rabbit hole. I went in thinking it would be an interesting read about masculine roles in society, so maybe that was my initial disappointment when I got a career advice book. The advice in this book is basic common sense. Things like, "Don't quit your job before you have another job". I completely lost interest when the author started interviewing a multi-millionare, pyramid scheme running, essential oil salesman about what it means to be a honest man. That's advice that shouldn't be taken seriously.

Yes - MUST READ! Highest Recommendation!

If you have a man in your life ... make sure he reads this! Life changing! If there was an option to rate this higher than 5-stars...I would. (It should go to 11!)

My highest recommendation to all men to not only read...but to internalize, embody, and implement in their lives!

Every guy should take the experience and wisdom from this book, and step-up & execute in your daily life.

For example:

"Excuses get easier to default to each time you use them. The value I placed on my goal was higher than not achieving it."

"Over time, small, insignificant choices add up to big results, either good or bad ... Think of the word 'because.' By simply using this word in a specific way, it can change your habits. Use 'because' to attach value to why you are doing it. I go to bed earlier now because I want to show my boys that their dad takes the time to take care of himself."

good but a little too much faith based

good for the most part but leans to much on faith. I am not interested in that side.

No BS

I met Scott about a year ago, shortly after listening to this the first time. I can tell you Scott is in real life just as he appears in this book. Scott’s no nonsense and no bs attitude is 100% real and true to life, as well as a larger than life demeanor. He is someone that all the men in our group look up to, both figuratively and literally. This is a phenomenal book that I have recommended to many already.

Good book and great message

Very well narrated, except for the interviews provided at the end of each chapter. Content about "Manning Up" is slightly more high level vs. tactical advice on how to. But the message was great. Definitely worth a 2nd read / listen.
