YOU’RE THE MAN. NOW ACT LIKE IT. Thirteen million single mothers. A culture drowning in passivity. Where have all the men gone? Most men spend their entire lives learning what it means to be a man. There are plenty of role models available, from our own fathers to coaches to movie stars – but not all of them set a Godly example. Even when they have the best intentions, most men lead by example and expect their sons to understand what manhood is without ever receiving intentional training on the subject. As a result, most bear the scars of the mistakes made along the way in trying to prove their manhood to themselves and others. Man up is an intentional look at the facets of a fully-engaged, powerful, passionate and functional man using Biblical wisdom and the experience of dozens of mature men, set into a five step process that is easy enough for a ten-year-old boy (and his father) to memorize and understand. Once learned, this study will give every young man a clear gauge of manhood against which he can measure himself, thus freeing him from ever wondering what he must do to prove that he has what it takes. In picking this book up to share with their sons, adults will learn more about the mantle of manhood, too, and will be challenged to shun passivity and take up the headship that is their duty, one sadly that is often left to the woman of the house. It is intended also to help single mothers to teach their sons about manhood in the absence of an engaged father figure. The study will benefit young women as well, many of whom go into their college years with no healthy idea of what a real man looks like – and end up making terrible dating and marriage choices because of it.

“A funny and moving commentary on that point in a woman's life when everything seems to come into question." —Camille Perri, The New York Times "It's the superb insights and penetrating writing that make this book remarkable... An extraordinary debut." —The Guardian "Enthralling, sharply observed" —Marie Claire "Hilarious... The personal and workplace plots are woven together beautifully. Read, cringe, laugh, relate." —Lenny "In this cutting commentary on workplace toxicity and how its tendrils can strangle relationships, Winter uses humor to illuminate the state of modern work, family, and friendship." —Elle.com "Sassy, sarcastic and sleek, this is a wonderfully brash appraisal of how we live."—Colum McCann One of Elle Magazine's 19 Summer Books That Everyone Will Be Talking About One of Cosmo's Reads for July One of Refinery29's Two New Books to Read in July by Brilliant Debut Authors An irreverent and deeply moving comedy about friendship, fertility, and fighting for one’s sanity in a toxic workplace. Jen has reached her early thirties and has all but abandoned a once-promising painting career when, spurred by the 2008 economic crisis, she takes a poorly defined job at a feminist nonprofit. The foundation’s ostensible aim is to empower women, but staffers spend all their time devising acronyms for imaginary programs, ruthlessly undermining one another, and stroking the ego of their boss, the larger-than-life celebrity philanthropist Leora Infinitas. Jen’s complicity in this passive-aggressive hellscape only intensifies her feelings of inferiority compared to her two best friends—one a wealthy attorney with a picture-perfect family, the other a passionately committed artist—as does Jen’s apparent inability to have a baby, a source of existential panic that begins to affect her marriage and her already precarious status at the office. As Break in Case of Emergency unfolds, a fateful art exhibition, a surreal boondoggle adventure in Belize, and a devastating personal loss conspire to force Jen to reckon with some hard truths about herself and the people she loves most. Jessica Winter’s ferociously intelligent debut novel is a wry satire of celebrity do-goodism as well as an exploration of the difficulty of navigating friendships as they shift to accommodate marriage and family, and the unspoken tensions that can strain even the strongest bonds. From the Hardcover edition.
