“It is admirable to be a man among men, eager to listen, calculated in speech, proudly developing broad shoulders, thick skin, a robust spine, and a love of God, country, and women as complementary equals. It’s okay to be strong, courageous, faithful, chivalrous, and full of virility, and it’s okay to develop one’s position of leadership and authority. With all my vices, weaknesses, and shortcomings, this is who I strive to be. It’s who we want our daughters to marry and our sons to become. Such is the man most capable of complementing his wife and encouraging her to become the woman she has every right to be. The man you are becoming need not cower at the altar of groupthink and popular decadence.”
This book is a great read — often funny, sometimes tragic, always earnest, always honest. It demonstrates that idealism is not dead. Follow on Spencer’s ride from boyhood to mid-life, and you will encounter characters you wish you would have met in your own life, people who either challenged or mentored Spencer, or both, and who helped mold him into the man he is today. – Andrea Brackett
