An excellent read
on 24 October 2011
This is a great little book. Anyone who reads The Art of Manliness blog will be used to Brett and Kate's writing style. This book is unusual in that it pulls together lots of old and contemporary writings under headings of seven virtues, which have been selected as "manly virtues". They are somewhat similar, but not the same, as Benjamin Franklin's virtues. The texts that are cited make for really good reading, and fit nicely in with each topic. Even though I have read some of them before, it was great to have them put into context, all in one place, etc.
I thoroughly recommend any man wanting to live a virtuous life pick up a copy and read it.
