Stand clear, now. Here comes “Mans­field’s Book of Manly Men: An Ut­terly In­vig­o­rat­ing Guide to be­ing Your Most Mas­cu­line Self,” by one Stephen Mans­field. from publisher Thomas Nel­son. The book has re­ceived ac­co­lades from none other than Lt. Gen. Wil­liam G. Boykin, the for­mer com­man­der of Delta Force.

“The Western world is in a cri­sis of dis­carded honor, du­bi­ous in­tegrity, and faux man­li­ness. It is time to re­cover what we have lost,” Mr. Mans­field pro­claims. “I want to iden­tify what a gen­uine man does — the virtues, the habits, the dis­ci­plines, the du­ties, the ac­tions of true man­hood — and then call men to do it.”

He is weary of man-bash­ing cul­ture like de­mean­ing com­mer­cials and sit­coms, and he seeks to school younger gents in au­then­tic man­li­ness. The thought­ful Mr. Mans­field also has sup­plied a list of 10 es­sen­tial movies for manly men. They are: “Se­abis­cuit,” “Char­i­ots of Fire,” “The Pur­suit of Happy-ness,” “It’s a Won­der­ful Life,” “Dead Po­ets So­ci­ety,” “Apollo 13,” “The King’s Speech,” “Men of Honor,” “Hoosiers” and “The Last Samurai.”
