    1. Ask most any single woman in her second half of life and she will tell you: a good man is exceedingly hard to find. So, why is that? And just what is a good man? Bad boys are for adolescent girls, for those who are yet too emotionally immature to recognize the lasting value of goodness, and yes, that goodness is about as sexy as it comes. If the good guy finishes last, it is only because once a woman meets one, she holds on. There is no need for anyone to come after him. This collection of essay [...]

    2. Wasn't exactly sure what to expect before I started reading this book. Was it going to be a self-help type deal or a critique of modern guys and how we're doing it all wrong? However, it turned out to be a great collection of essays, memories and perspectives that let you know that you aren't alone in your doubts, confusions and quest for seconds chances.The fact that the essays come from a variety guys in different walks of life, and not just professional writers, gives this book a really authe [...]

    3. My favorite essays were: Here's the Bad News, Son by Steve Almond, Talking Shop by Regie O'Hare Gibson, Blood-Spattered by Julio Medina, BFI by Ben Woodbeck, and Khan without the Wrath by Curtis B. The editors did a good job in getting diverse voices heard. The range of good men was broad. I wish there were more books like this. We need to hear more good men speak up and take the risk of being vulnerable in sharing their conflicts, insecurities, and doubts. Just like women, men can be strong and [...]

    4. The Good Men Project is a series of short essays written by men about things they view as important. Some of the essays are very good and brought tears to my eyes. Other essays were, to me, uninteresting. But that really is the point. Men face many different struggles and every man should find at least one essay in this book that he relates to. I don't know how women would relate to this book but I think every man would take something away from reading this book.

    5. This book is somewhat interesting, if you like true stories from someone's life. This is a book of several short stories, written by men, on life lessons learned in the everyday lives of these men. It is about accepting your fathers as human beings who make mistakes, realizing that you have made decisions that have finally made you a man, and about being a good father, even when you feel clueless as to how to be a father.

    7. If you're looking for a book about radical masculinity, this isn't it. There are some great essays here, some that definitely make me want to go back and take a second pass through. But by and large, it's a fair intro of "men's studies" or in considering modern masculinity.

    8. I did enjoy reading these short stories. As expected with a collection, some are excellent and some are just OK. It is interesting to see others perspectives about their life and marriages. There are also some heartbreaking tales of loss.
