Summary, etc.:
Dave Hollis, CEO of the Hollis Co. and husband of #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hollis, refutes the lies many men believe but don't talk about, topples the phony ideas about what 'real men' do, and points the way for men to finally start living the best versions of their lives.
When a looming career funk, a growing drinking problem, and a challenging trek through therapy battered Hollis, he began to realize he was letting untruths about himself dictate his life. He had to choose: push himself out of his comfort zone to become the best man he was capable of being, or play it safe and settle for mediocrity. Here he points the way for those of us who are, like he was, skeptical of self-help but wanting something more in their lives. -- adapted from jacket
