An utterly invigorating guide to being your most masculine self

What does it mean to be a man?

Witty, compelling, and shrewd, Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men is about resurrecting your inborn, timeless, essential, masculine self.

The Western world is in a crisis of discarded honor, dubious integrity, and faux manliness. It is time to recover what we have lost.

Stephen Mansfield shows us the way. Working with timeless maxims and stirring examples of manhood from ages past, Mansfield issues a trumpet call of manliness fit for our times.

“My goal in this book is simple,” he says. “I want to identify what a genuine man does—the virtues, the habits, the disciplines, the duties, the actions of true manhood—and then call men to do it.”

"Stephen Mansfield gives us yet another fantastic book, this time covering a topic so misunderstood and misrepresented in society today. He creates a blueprint for true manhood, building upon stories from the world’s greatest men—one of whom was my great-grandfather, Winston Churchill. I applaud Stephen for the massive research he has done. I will read this book again and again and learn something new every time. Mansfield truly is a 'Manly Man.'"
Jonathan Sandys, great-grandson of Sir Winston Churchill

"I’m sick to death of seeing men portrayed as bumbling morons in movies and TV commercials. We’re living in a culture that tries to make masculinity a punch line, and it’s having a devastating effect on our families and society. In Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men, Stephen takes the bold, potentially offensive step of calling men to be men again. It’s about time!"
Dave Ramsey, New York Times best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio show host

"We live in such a fast-paced society and yet many of our men sit around and do nothing! It’s time to get off the bench and get in the game. In Mansfield's Book of Manly Men, Stephen challenges us to do the very thing God has intended for us to do . . . act! To act like men and do what men do. Buckle your chinstrap before you pick up this book because it is truth and its challenge will hit you as you've never been hit. A must read for every man."
Mark Brunell, Former NFL Quarterback and Head of Football at Episcopal School of Jacksonville

"Mansfield’s Book of Manly Men cuts to the heart of what it means to be a true man. In a culture where authentic masculinity is often buried beneath myriad counterfeits and stereotypes, Mansfield’s vision of manhood is a refreshing and challenging ideal. Replete with inspiring biographies of heroic men, interwoven with spiritual insight, this is a book of action, initiation and honor. Society says being a real man means driving expensive cars, owning a big house, dominating a woman, and not being bound to anything except the advancement of your own career. In contrast, Mansfield reminds us that to be a true man is to be honest, humble, compassionate, responsible, courageous, and faithful. I hope many people read this book, including my sons."
Jonathan Jackson, star of the hit ABC show Nashville
