The Good Men Project is the first book and series of video articles that has no boundaries on the subject of what it is like to be a man. SingleDad.com supports and approves this fascinating book and the stories of courageous men who share their own life experiences as part of the Good Men Project.
The Good Men Project: Real Stories from the Front Lines of Modern Manhood is a book, a documentary film/DVD, the basis for a series of live events, and the funding source for a charitable organization (the Good Men Foundation that helps at-risk men and boys). It’s also the centerpiece of a national discussion about what manhood means today. The book includes thirty-one essays by a diverse group of men describing the challenges, obstacles, triumphs, failures, and life-changing moments that collectively help define what it means to be a man in America. Contributors include NFL Hall of Famer Andre Tippett, New York Times war photographer Michael Kamber, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Charlie LeDuff, former Sing Sing inmate Julio Medina, and Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky. The film features ten of the book’s contributing writers sharing the challenges they face as fathers, husbands, sons, or workers. It opens with war photographer Michael Kamber on the ground in Iraq. It also includes a Russian kick-boxer describing his rough start in America and the story of a writer from Butte, Montana, figuring out how to tell his dad he loves him. As Good Men Project cofounder Tom Matlack says, "We want viewers of the film to see that it’s okay to be macho and talk about these issues."
