The Dude’s Guide to Manhood by Darrin Patrick

*I received this complimentary copy from Booklook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.*

The first that hit me was the that one of the forewords was written by Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame. That in, and of, itself is a reason to get this book.

All quacking aside, this is an amazing book on manhood. I have read several books in the recent months on manhood and this by far has been the best I’ve read.

The book goes into twelve characteristics of what a Biblical man should be. Some of the topics deal with work, family, God, sex, contentment, and connecting. Men need to understand that we are created for a purpose. Masculinity reveals God in some facet provided that masculinity is rooted in devotion to God.

What Patrick has done is put into plain English what a man is; not what he thinks it is. There is a difference that if not

discovered will lead to an unsatisfied life and a yearning for more.

I really enjoyed the chapters on family, fatherhood, and being a wife-loving husband. Too many man see these responsibilities as secondary to work and hobbies.  Patrick puts the proper perspective in print. Do what God wants from you; not what you want for you.

Every man should read this book. I repeat: EVERY MAN SHOULD READ THIS BOOK. Take my advice and just do it. You’ll be glad you did.
