I got an advance copy of The Manual to Manhood for the express purpose of reading it, then blogging about it. Not a problem–in fact this book was a pleasure to read.
With ten categories of knowledge/tips, Catherman covers the entire scope of hard-hitting practical wisdom for men. The book is one that would make a great High School graduation gift as to me, it seems like it is best-suited for the older teen boy.
That might just be me, though, so take a look for yourself — many men could surely benefit from this, if only as a review. Some of the sections that were of high interest to me were the ones on Women & Dating, Clothes & Style, Social Skills & Manners, and Work & Ethics. These topic areas need a lot of work in our society.
Another group who will benefit from this book are the fatherless sons out there. The book covers things a boy would normally learn from Dad, but these days Dad is often absent. From this book, a son could learn how to throw a football, how to shave, how to tie a tie, how to change oil, how to unstop a clogged drain.
