WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A MAN Raising up men has never been easy, but today is seems particularly tough. The young and old need heroes to embody the eternal qualities of manhood: honor, duty, valor, and integrity. InThe Book of Man, William J. Bennett points the way, offering a positive, encouraging, uplifting, realizable idea of manhood, redolent of history and human nature, and practical for contemporary life. Using profiles, stories, letters, poems, essays, historical vignettes, and myths to bring his subject to life, The Book of Man defines what a man should be, how he should live, and to what he should aspire in several key areas of life: war, work, leisure, and more. "Whether we take up the sword, the plow, the ball, the gavel, our children, or our Bibles," says Bennett, "we must always do it like the men we are called to be."The Book of Man shows how.

How do you find your original self? Osho perceives man as becoming increasingly alienated from his inner self, gradually losing his natural innocence and creativity in the mindless quest for worldly power and success. To appear strong, the average man suppresses his innate qualities of love and compassion. For Osho, the ideal man is Zorba, the Buddha—a perfect blend of matter and soul. This seamless collection of discourses takes the reader through the various stages of man’s evolution: from Adam to Slave, Son, Homosexual, Priest and Politician, until he attains the pinnacle of his consciousness as the Rebel or Zorba. Sparkling with anecdotes and enriched with brilliant repartee, The Book of Man is a remarkable blend of wisdom and wit.

This book is the book you always knew existed but could never get your hands on in hardcopy. This is an insightful and humorous examination of the "bloodsport" we call dating. Make no mistakes the content is taken very seriously but is presented in an interesting and engaging manner. The authors are average people that have waded waist deep in the proverbial dating cesspool and felt the need to examine and document the behavior and hopefully, provide a remedy for this devastating phenomenon. The authors are of the understanding and belief that our dating behavior spills over into all facets of our lives and has long term effects for us and future generations. It is their hope that this book will have enough of an impact on those that read it that the behavior will be altered and we will see a marked improvement in how we date.

EIGHTY PIECES OF SHORT FICTION AND NONFICTION ON MANHOOD BY SOME OF THE WORLD'S BEST WRITERS, PRESENTED BY COLUM MCCANN, ESQUIRE, AND NARRATIVE 4 To help launch the literary nonprofit Narrative 4, Esquire asked eighty of the world's greatest writers to chip in with a story, all with the title, "How to Be a Man." The result is The Book of Men, an unflinching investigation into the essence of masculinity. The Book of Men probes, with the poignant honesty and imagination that only these writers could deliver, the slippery condition of manhood. You will find men striving and searching, learning and failing to learn, triumphing and aspiring; men who are lost and men navigating their way toward redemption. These stories don't just explore what it is to be a man or how to achieve manliness, but ultimately what it is to be a human—with all of its uncertainty, complexity, clumsiness, and beauty. With contributions from literary luminaries as diverse as the subjects they capture, and curated by the editors of Esquire, National Book Award winner Colum McCann, and Narrative 4, a global nonprofit devoted to using storytelling as a means to empathy, The Book of Men might not teach you how to negotiate a deal or mix a Manhattan, but it does scratch at that most eternal of questions: What is a man?

The Human Genome Project and the Quest to Discover Our Genetic Heritage

James Watson, a discoverer of the structure of DNA, described it as "the most golden of molecules," the true chemical for life. Indeed, it is the essential component from which our genes are made. In it is encoded the genetic language that controls our destinies. Astonishingly powerful, just six millionths of a gram of DNA carries as much information as ten volumes of the Oxford English Dictionary. The "Book of Man," is the term used by Walter Bodmer and Robin McKie for the DNA that is the instruction set according to which all humans are made. At conception, a single cell--the fertilized egg--is produced, and it is this one cell that has the potential to form a new and unique individual under the guidance of the DNA within its nucleus. The human body is made up of a hundred million million cells of many different sorts, and all contain the inherited information that comes from that first, single cell created at fertilization. Bodmer and McKie assert that when we learn how to read DNA's pages and chapters we will obtain the information relevant to the understanding of most diseases, individual differences in behavior, and a new awareness of our own history and evolution. The Book of Man explores how genetic information is now being read and interpreted by focusing on biology's most ambitious undertaking to date--the Human Genome Project, an attempt to uncover all the 100,000 genes that control our development and detail the DNA alphabet of each. The authors go on to wrestle with the moral and ethical issues of modern genetics, making a case for a rational appraisal of genetic engineering and for the public to become sufficiently "DNA literate" in order to appreciate the crucial role it plays in our lives. From Gregor Mendel's discovery of the laws of inheritance to the high-tech, crime-stopping power of forensics science and the fascinating but sometimes troublesome implications of the latest science of genetic engineering, The Book of Man brilliantly explores and explains the quest that is changing our understanding of what it means to be a human being.

"Albert is the story of two worlds - our own, in the midst of political and cultural turmoil - and Ki, a tiny pristine planet, besieged by tribal war and the threat of overpopulation, where gay men mate for life and possess the Egg of the Eye, a third testicle that allows them to listen to the thoughts of others, to reproduce, and to transcend space and time." "Using his Egg, Albert, the endangered son of a Same-Sex male couple from Ki, will be reborn on Earth. The year is 2025, after the fundamentalist White Christian Party has taken over a divided America. Traveling through a nation split among fundamentalist strongholds and "gay reserves," Albert will find the Earth mate who will claim his heart - and allow him to return to Ki and reclaim leadership of the planet. Mesmerizing, erotic, and truthful, Albert is the story of two men - and two worlds - finally merging in these amazing chronicles of The Book Of Man. There, as the gay Everyman at the crossroads of life, death, and identity, Albert will tell his own story and define the ultimate tribe from which he comes."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Excerpt from The Book of Nature and the Book of Man: In Which Is Accepted as the Type of Creation, the Microcosm, the Great Pivot on Which All Lower Forms of Life Turn It is but little that one man can do: representative facts and principles are therefore all that one mind can grasp in nature. Hence, as man surveys the different departments of nature, he inquires for types of them. These types are representative, and afford illustration for every other department Of knowledge, whether usually supposed to be connected therewith or not. Still, all are mentally investigated by the same faculties, which give them a common stand-point. We hope to show, in the course of this work, the truth of this great principle, that the philosophy of mind is the centre or key Of the philosophy of matter.

Das Ende der Männer

und der Aufstieg der Frauen

Ist die jahrtausendealte Herrschaft des Patriarchats am Ende? Noch nicht, sagt Hanna Rosin, doch die massiven Veränderungen der Berufswelt und des Bildungssystems haben eine Dynamik in Gang gesetzt, die das Verhältnis zwischen den Geschlechtern nachhaltig verändert. So scheinen viele Anforderungen der modernen Dienstleistungsgesellschaft – Flexibilität, soziale Intelligenz, Kommunikationsfähigkeit – eindeutig Frauen in die Hände zu spielen, während Männer oft von den Umwälzungen überfordert sind. Hanna Rosin zeigt – frei von ideologischen Prämissen –, wie sich heute das Leben von Männern und Frauen unterscheidet, wie sehr sich die Art und Weise geändert hat, wie heute gearbeitet, gelernt, zusammengelebt wird. Differenziert und mit vielen konkreten Beispielen gelingt es Rosin, die Chancen und Schattenseiten des »weiblichen Jahrhunderts« in den Blick zu nehmen. "Das Ende der Männer" ist keine feministische Streitschrift, keine Prophezeiung, sondern eine messerscharfe, weitsichtige Diagnose.

The Book of Man tells the story of one of mankind's greatest odysseys. It is a quest that is leading to a new understanding of what it is to be a human being and it is being carried out under the auspices of the Human Genome Project - the massive international research effort aimed at delineating the exact molecular composition of the genes that make up Homo Sapiens. It is biology's answer to the Apollo Space Programme, and one that seemed a far distant dream when first proposed in the early 1980s. Walter Bodmer and Robin McKie describe both the scientific challenges that have been overcome in bringing genetics to this remarkable state and the difficulties that still lie ahead. This tape is the story of mankind's greatest voyage - a voyage that is changing all our lives.
