Announcing the Official Manvotionals Book Site

We’re just a little more than a month away from the launch of our second book, Manvotionals: Timeless Wisdom and Advice on Living the 7 Manly Virtues. We can’t wait to share this book with you guys!

We wanted to give you a sneak peak of the book before it launches, so we created an official Manvotionals site. You can watch the book trailer, pre-order the book, and take a look at a few excerpts. (As a side note, the interior color scheme looks more pink than it is in real life). We’ve included the book’s introduction in the excerpts, and I encourage you to read it over to get an idea of what the book is all about.

The book will be out in mid-September. As I know some of you will ask…yes, there will be an ebook version. But I would highly encourage you to buy the paper version (and this is coming from a guy who’s a huge fan of the Kindle). With the way the book is laid out and designed (it includes 75 vintage illustrations), it will really look a lot better in analog format.

So go check out the Manvotionals site! And while you’re at it, become a fan of Manvotionals on Facebook to get exclusive updates about the book and its upcoming launch.

Pre-ordering this today. The Manvotionals have always been my favorite part of this site. Well…Manvotionals probably tie for 1st with the Lessons in Manliness articles. Still, this is exciting!

Thanks for all the work you put into this site Brett and Kate!

Why is manliness one of the seven virtues of manliness? Seems a little redundant.

I understand what your doing and think ya’ll do it well. Not sure why you picked salmon or shrimp as a color. is it real men are not afraid of color? Color often define who we are and are cues to what or who we are comfortable with including self. My guess you want your audience to already be comfortable with their self and improve upon manliness with the book.
Would like to know what your thinking.

I like what you’re doing here and I agree. In western society it is looked down upon to be a man. TV shows men as hormonal blithering idiots who cannot think or speak complete sentences. Fortunately there is always a woman to set him straight and save the day. Real men are determined by how much they drink or how many women they bed.
The medieval custom of knighthood offers a unique approach to shaping a boy into a man. In those days, lads were trained from an early age, being quipped with a masculine vision, a code of conduct, and a cause in which to invest their lives. Ceremonies were held in their honor, celebrating the boys’ progress. Objectives were set, goals achieved, and along the way, these boys became men. (a must read, “Raising a Modern-Day Knight,” by Robert Lewis…worth the read).
What men in western society are experiencing today was summed up best by C.S. Lewis when he stated modernist”castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.”
Keep up the good work AOM.
