AoM Book Club April 2014: Cannery Row

A Crash Course in Jazz Appreciation

by Brett & Kate McKay

Jazz. It’s the music that many men say they like, but don’t actually know anything about. Which is a shame for a whole host of reasons.

A Man’s Primer on Gin

by A Manly Guest Contributor

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from Joe Maiellano. Gin is perhaps the most versatile of the distilled spirits. Sure, whisky is delicious.

by A Manly Guest Contributor

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from Ryan Holiday. War is unquestionably mankind at his worst. Yet, paradoxically, it is in war that men — individual men — often show the very best of themselves. War is often the result of greed, stupidity, or depravity. But in it, men are often brave, loyal, and […]
