The Dude's Guide to Manhood
Finding True Manliness In A World of Counterfeits
By Darrin Patrick

Discover the Path to true Masculinity - To an adventurous life of strength, purpose and clarity. Didn't we used to understand manhood? Wasn't there a time when it was clear and straightforward ? Are we lost? In The Dude's Guide to Manhood pastor, author and dude Darrin Patrick charts a course back toward real manliness, mapping out a vision to help men find significance and influence in today's broken mixed-message culture. Revealing his own frailties and missteps, Patrick doesn't preach at you but walks with you on a journey toward healing and wholeness.

Darrin Patrick serves as the chaplain of the St. Louis Cardinals. He is pastor of Journey, where dudes feel at home in St. Louis, Missouri. Darin is vice president of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network. He has written two books, Church Planter and For the City and has a doctorate degree from Covenant Seminary. 

Although I've read Clean, a proven plan for men committed to sexual integrity , and The Fantasy Fallacy both of which are geared toward me, The Dude's Guide to Manhood is a little different. Both of the other books put their whole focus on nothing but sexual abstinence, while the Dude's Guide to Manhood is more of a lifestyle guide. There are of course chapters, for how to deal with your ladies but this really is a book improving yourself, all around.

Even as a lady, not a guy, really enjoyed reading this book. Its just so inspiring. I love how it feels like the author Darrin Patrick is speaking to me one on one is some sort of counseling session. While I was reading I realized I was making a mental list of things things that I could improve. This Dude's Guide to Manhood, maybe the best book you can give to to the guy you know, even with that silly title.
