about this item

One man's quest to becoming a man that Hemingway would be proud to call un compadre.

Ben Franklin. Teddy Roosevelt. John Wayne. Babe Ruth. Ernest Hemingway. Looking to follow in the footsteps of these manly men, Frank Miniter decided to go to the places we all agree still make men. This quest led him across the world and finally to a secret fraternity of men who keep an ultimate rite of passage alive.
Following the route of the iconic “Papa” Hemingway from Paris to Pamplona with he found that the answers to what happened to manliness, and therefore to what makes men, are in Hemingway’s story. Part memoir, part how-to guide, This Will Make a Man of You narrates one man’s journey to achieving manliness and uncovers a formula the ancients used to build men of character—a methodology that is still used in the places we all agree still make men. Even better, this formula can help all of us become all we want to be.
Through his narrative, Miniter recounts his decision to run with the bulls and his harrowing participation in that intense event with a secretive fraternity of men and women. As he goes he provides readers with sage advice on how they can accomplish their own feats of manliness by using an ancient formula.
This is a must-read for every young man looking for a way to become man, for any middle-aged family man seeking adventure, and for all the other types of men in-between. This Will Make a Man Out of You should be read by every red-blooded male.
