Wasn't exactly sure what to expect before I started reading this book. Was it going to be a self-help type deal or a critique of modern guys and how we're doing it all wrong? However, it turned out to be a great collection of essays, memories and perspectives that let you know that you aren't alone in your doubts, confusions and quest for seconds chances.

The fact that the essays come from a variety guys in different walks of life, and not just professional writers, gives this book a really authentic and relatable feel.

Definitely brought back thoughts I've had as to how I'm handling/have handled being the son of a single mother, of how to be a decent boyfriend/husband. In one of my recent relationships, my partner said that I had no goals, no ambition and my response to her was that my goal was to be a good man and eventually good father, but she said only professional(ie monetary) goals are truly goals. It's taken me a few years of soul searching and some of the stories in this book to realize that just isn't true.

Guys these tales/doubts should sound familiar, ladies give it a read so you can see what goes on behind the scenes of the male mind and all the things we'll probably never talk to you about or express out loud. ( )

I've always thought men were simple creatures with simple needs. Now, thanks to The Good Men Project, I have been given more of a sneak peek into men's thoughts and feelings.

Please don't misunderstand. The men who wrote these essays are not sissy men. They just wrote about their insecurities, uneasiness and doubts that afflict them in various life situations (i.e. the birth of a child, not being sure whether or not to follow in their family's footsteps and being a single parent of a little girl for the first time). I mean, I always knew men had feelings, but most of them have been brought up to not show feelings because they were told it is a sign of weakness. So, reading this book was a nice and pleasant visit into a world of men that were strong enough to write down how they felt and share it with the world.

I would've finished this book sooner than what I did, but I wanted to take my time and actually read these men's stories. I wanted to feel what they were trying to portray and, I must tell you, I'm glad I did. I am one of those women that believes a man is a stronger person when he can show the emotions he feels, even crying ... well ... as long as it's not the blubbering crying with snot running down their face ... that might be a little much.

Another benefit of this book: The proceeds from the sales of the book and the DVD of the film (yes, there's a film too!) will benefit The Good Men Foundation, a not-for-profit 501(3)(c) corporation supporting organizations that provide educational, social, financial, or legal support to men and boys at risk. How awesome is that?! =) ( )
