The Official Art of Manliness Book Club

Welcome to the AoM Book Club! We'll use this space to discuss a new book every month. It's one thing to read a book and digest it on your own, but to do so with a group of people opens it up to new insights that you would not have arrived at otherwise.

Harry Truman said that "all leaders are readers." We certainly believe that to be true and want to provide a place for men to think and grow through the books we read.

We'll choose a new book every month that is sure to help us on our journey to becoming better men. Be sure to visit the AoM article "How to Read a Book" to get the most out of this endeavor.

Lumberjoe replied to Heath Edward O'Donnell's discussion Gaming and Proper Social Actions
""Sure, particular individuals are making the gaming community unwelcoming for women but why is it that they are able to do so without being shut down by their peers?" Exactly. When women who aren't fans of Sport X attend an event out…"

Secret Menace replied to Heath Edward O'Donnell's discussion Gaming and Proper Social Actions
"Lumberjoe is making a good point. To add to it: If you treat a societal or community issue as an individual "problem person" issue, you miss all the ways in which that society or community reinforce the dysfunctional norms. Sure,…"

Lumberjoe replied to Heath Edward O'Donnell's discussion Gaming and Proper Social Actions
""But that isn't a problem with gaming culture, it's a problem with the people." That's kind of a chicken & egg dilemma though. Sure, it's a problem that individuals have but if individuals with the same problem are…"
