The Masculinity Manifesto
How a Man Establishes Influence, Credibility and Authority
Men are not the enemy, and masculinity, contrary to what much of popular culture would have you believe, is the solution to what plagues individuals, families, and society as a whole.
MEN, YOU ARE NOT TOXIC.
You are hardwired to be masculine and you should not be ashamed of it. Society needs you to be the best version of your masculine self you can be. Unfortunately, our culture no longer honors masculinity, and for the past several decades the government, academia, and the medical community have been promoting a false and even dangerous ideal of watered-down manliness.
Enter author, combat veteran, and popular podcast host Ryan Michler. Raised without a permanent father figure, he knows firsthand how a lack of strong, ambitious, self-sufficient men has damaged society. Many of the world’s most complicated and challenging problems could be resolved if men became more capable husbands, fathers, businessmen, and community leaders.
The Masculinity Manifesto is a step by-step guide to restoring masculinity in a culture that works tirelessly to eradicate it.
Michler’s message is clear: Men are not to be feared and shunned but honored and respected. If you want to fulfill your role as protector, provider, and presider, confidently leading yourself and your family, you’ll find The Masculinity Manifesto an essential companion.

"There is much written for men today. Most of it is swirling with fantasy and psycho-junk. Ryan Michler has not written this kind of book. He is fierce, he is wise, he is experienced, and he is unsparing—on the page as well as in life. The Masculinity Manifesto is a book for our time." -STEPHEN MANSFIELD, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author
