In the book The Way of Men, the author, Jack Donovan, sets out to explain masculinity. Donovan explains what it is to be a man. In this small book you will get a look at what masculinity is in most basic sense. The book talks about masculinity through the ages and in many different ways. You will get lessons in both anthropology and modern society, all in an effort to help you understand masculinity.
“What is masculinity? Ask ten men and you’ll get ten vague, conflicting answers. Unlike any book of its kind, The Way of Men offers a simple, straightforward answer-without getting bogged down in religion, morality, or politics. It’s a guide for understanding who men have been and the challenges men face today…”
The Way of Men is an eye opening book. It gives a different perspective that you do not come across very often. The book takes a look at the facts and tries to explain masculinity in its most basic form. Donovan explains how the way of men is the way of the gang. He explains how a man’s value is determined by how well he can serve the group.
The Way of Men is a very interesting book. If you want to get a better understanding of what masculinity is and the roles men play in society, this is a book for you. I found it very interesting. It points out problems men face that they may not even realize they are facing. It gives men information to help them become better at being a man.
