Book Description

Growing out of his immensely popular TED talk and platform, a gripping, deeply honest, fearless personal and societal exploration of masculinity and what it means to be a man from beloved actor, director, and social activist Justin Baldoni.

With the explosion of the #MeToo movement, toxic masculinity has become one of the most prevalent social issues of our time. In this powerful, thoughtful book, Justin Baldoni reflects on his own struggles and speaks openly about taboo subjects to help create a new understanding and a system of accountability.

For Justin, it’s not just about becoming better men. It’s about becoming good humans. With insight and raw honesty, he explores a range of difficult, sometimes uncomfortable topics, including strength and vulnerability, female empowerment, relationships, violence and abuse, sex and sexuality, bullying, infidelity, gender equality, body image, work–life balance, and fatherhood.

Justin provides essential tools to help us move beyond the scripts we’ve learned since childhood and the roles we are expected to play. He challenges men to be brave enough to be vulnerable, to be strong enough to be sensitive, to be confident enough to listen. But men cannot do it without women’s help. He implores women to have more compassion and empathy for themselves and for the men who need them. In this urgent, groundbreaking and provocative book, he challenges men to look at themselves as he reimagines what it means to be man enough.8     DENIED(Added 88 Days Ago) 

Book Review

Man Enough: Undefining my Maculinity by Justin Baldoni is an honest and real look into masculinity for men and society. Man Enough is geared towards men but I recommend to anyone. Justin opened my eyes to things I’ve never thought about. Feminism is talked about all the time, but I never hear about masculinity. Many difficult topics are discussed. Justin provides real life examples from his life and his friends’ lives. Man Enough is real, raw and honest. Many difficult topics are discussed. Justin talks about his flaws and what he struggles with. The ending message that he still has a lot of work to do really resonated with me and showed his humility. I enjoyed reading a book by a real person that is still struggling to be better. I recommend Man Enough to anyone that is interested in learning about masculinity and how it affects men.

I listened to the audiobook and loved Justin’s narration. This book was even more personal hearing Justin’s voice. There is even a part where his kids sing a song. I always love when authors narrate their books especially when the book is personal like Man Enough.

Thank you Harper Audio and Harper One for Man Enough.
