Back in March we did a group writing project here on AoM where we asked readers to submit essays on the lessons in manliness they’ve learned from a man in their life. We received 46 submissions from men who shared stories about the grandfathers, friends, and mentors who have lived lives that showcase the very best in being an honorable man.
I’ve finally put all the submissions into a nicely formatted eBook so that everyone can enjoy and hopefully learn from the lives of ordinary men who have helped pass the art of manliness on to others. At over 100 pages long, it’s pretty substantial for an eBook. And it’s completely free.
So download the FREE Lessons in Manliness eBook now! Please share it with as many people as you want. Update: Ebook no longer available. Sorry!
I hope you enjoy it, and if you missed out on submitting a Lessons in Manliness essay this time around, we’ll probably be doing this again in a year. So stay tuned.
Finally, a big thank you goes out to all those who contributed to this project. Kate and I really enjoyed reading your submissions and were inspired and touched by the men you wrote about. Thank you for taking the time to honor these men and for sharing their stories with the men of AoM.
