The Shrink’s Links: Book Review: The Come Up for Men

Bringing you the best of mental health every week.

41mnguyxrul-_sx331_bo1204203200_At an under-advertised book fair, us authors did little more than sell or give books to one another. But I got a chance to meet Tracy Williams and hear his concerns about how, with the decline of marriage and increase in mass incarceration, few men remain in his inner city community to teach young men to be leaders. Therefore, he wrote The Come Up for Men.
This book offers sage, practical advice; the closest thing there is to an owner’s manual about how to live a life that you will be proud of and others will respect. Williams provides a rebuttal to all those voices of despair that pose as temptations and braggadocio. I can see The Come Up for Men being used in the curriculum of a church or community center youth group. If you lead one of those organizations, I suggest getting this book and using it to prompt a real conversation about what it means to be a man.
