Steve Clarke marks his publishing debut with the release of “The Man Book: Becoming a Man in the Twenty-First Century” (published by Balboa Press). The self-help book aims to educate men on how to become “appropriately grounded masculine Men.”

For many years, Clarke has noticed a “pronounced deterioration in the way men felt about themselves and about their role in society.” He believes that men are confused because nobody ever taught them how to be properly and appropriately masculine.

In penning the book, he attempts to begin the educational process for men by describing what masculinity looks like, and offering them a wide range of options they can choose from to become happy, resilient men that women can love and admire.

“I want the men who read it to grow into their masculinity and feel confident in their masculinity,” Clarke says. “I want the women who read it to understand what it takes to become appropriately masculine, and learn to appreciate and admire the males who have done so.”

A snippet from the book:
In the text, I use the word “Man” (i.e., Man with a capital ‘M’) to refer to an authentic, resilient, centered, adult male who knows who he is, and where he is going. I use the term “man” to refer to a male whose ‘inner man’ is still locked up because he is afraid to set his inner man free. When a man sets his inner man free, he becomes the Man he was always meant to be.
