In a world of competing and conflicting messages regarding masculinity, the definition of a true man is elusive at best. Frank Miniter's "The Ultimate Man's Survival Guide" is an entertaining and resourceful handbook that offers his take on the skills and abilities true men possess, including:
* how to fight off bears and alligators
* how to set a dislocated joint or create a tourniquet out of a t-shirt
* how to respond to a car accident
Written in seven sections (survivor, provider, athlete, hero, romantic, cultured man, and philosopher) "The Ultimate Man's Survival Guide" presents guys with attitudes, skills, and philosophies that clarify what it means to truly be a man. Concisely written, and packed with diagrams and how-to illustrations, Miniter's guidebook proposes that any guy can be the ultimate man: whether he is saving a lost hiker, rescuing a child from a river, or standing up against injustice.
