The Book of Man By William Bennett is a most excellent collection of stories based on the history of what strong,courageous and bold men has done for the United Sates and the World. The author aired on Sean Hannity's television program to promote this epic collection to help young men learn about what life as a man is; its not a joke, and its not something earned when you reach a certain age. It's taking responsibility to stand up for what is right in the toughest times, war times, peace times, and when your life is going perfect. The book also contains the story of Aaron Rodgers & Cal Ripken Jr. (in the sports& leisure section of this book) which was a great surprise to me being that Aaron Rodgers just won the Super Bowl with the Packers in Feb. 2011. I would recommend this book to any man who enjoys history and/or sports, who doesn't? The book's physical cover and pages are Premium quality and is built to last generations, if desired. This book will be around my house for years to come because of the real & inspirational stories that it contains.
