Content was great. Attention holding power of the book not so great. I was bored. At the same time I agreed with several points Bennett addresses throughout the book. Great read for a young man. Not horrible, just not going to be a New York Best Seller either. He did do an excellent job of shaping the book into 6 main categories, and I felt he did a quality job on elaborating those categories. The first category was Men at War. The battles we all face as men. The second category was Men at Work, this was probably my favorite, and to me I felt the most applicable to the working man for sure or the aspiring working man for that matter. The third category was Men at Leisure, or he also included play and competition here. I definitely see several young men identifying with this chapter. The fourth category was Men in the Polis (Greek word for community). Which I think several of young men struggle with being involved with the community. The fifth category was Men with Women and Children. If you don’t read the whole book, and you are aspiring to be a married man or already married, please at least read this chapter. The final category was Men in Prayer and Reflection. I found irony that this is the last topic Bennett addressed because this is usually the last category we as men focus on, unfortunately. All in all I think you should at least read Chapter 2 and 5. I really enjoyed the way he used stories to tie his points together, Great conversations were had as a result of some of the content in this book. I will say this, I think his book on Virtues was much richer.
