Rhett Smith – What It Means To Be A Man

Here is a quick thought about Rhett Smith’s book, “What it means to be a Man”, it was a quick, interesting read.  I enjoyed the concepts in this book; Men to need to be men and take care of themselves and their families. This book was read back to back with Dudes Guide to Manhood by Darrin Patrick and should almost be sent together. Each book is full of things men need to stop doing and what they need to start doing.

Part 1: @battleborn_NV #whatitmeanstobeaman #part1 its time to b aware & realize ur archetype, what side of the extreme u r on& what type of dad r u #battlebornnv

Part 2: @battleborn_NV #whatitmeanstobeaman #part2 as men we need to be honest w/ what we struggle w/. Trapped in anger, stuck in silence, move away from the “box”

Part 3: @battleborn_NV #whatitmeanstobeaman #part3 encounter the vulnerability by being known. It’s time to open yourself up to others and experience intimacy.

Part 4: @battleborn_NV #whatitmeanstobeaman #part4 take care of yourself, be open to Gods calling. Create action. Men are never “done”. #battlebornnv

I read this very quickly but it really made me stop and look at myself. Do I need to grow up/change? How can I move away from the “box.” That is why this book matters. You have to stop and think to yourself about the topics presented. If you just glaze quickly over them… what’s the point.  In that case, put the book down and go take a nap… you aren’t doing yourself any favors.

Men it is time for us to stop this lazy, go do it for me attitude.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes by Moody Publishers. I was not required to post a positive review and the views expressed in this review are my own.
