Description

LEWIS HOWES grew up as an athlete. He played almost every sport in high school and went on to play football professionally. Howes then transferred his competitive nature from sports to business, building his podcast The School of Greatness into a global phenomenon and becoming successful beyond his wildest dreams. But his whole identity was built on misguided beliefs about what 'masculinity' was: dangerous, false ideas learned from teammates and coaches in locker rooms and stereotypes in the media. Like so many men, Howes grew up angry, frustrated and always chasing something that was never enough.

At 30 years old, outwardly thriving but unfulfilled inside, Howes began a personal journey to find inner peace and to uncover the many masks that men, both young and old, wear. In The Mask of Masculinity, Howes exposes the nine masks that men wear to protect themselves - and the truth that lies beneath them. He teaches men how to break through the walls that hold them back from showing real emotion, and reveals how women can better understand the men in their lives. It's not easy, but if you want to love, be loved and live a great life, then you must make an odyssey of self-discovery. This book is a must-read for every man - and for every woman who loves a man.

Review Text

Lewis's raw truth of what it's like to be raised as a male athlete in today's world is exactly what we need to hear. I want every football player (and athlete) to read this book so they can understand what's possible when they take the helmet off.
