Description

From NFL player turned film and TV star Terry Crews comes a wise and warmhearted memoir chronicling his lifelong quest to become a good man, loving husband, and responsible father.
 
What does it mean to be a man? Terry Crews, TV’s iconic “Old Spice Guy” and co-star of the hit Golden Globe Award–winning series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, has spent decades seeking the answer to that question. In Manhood, he shares what he’s learned, telling the amazing story of his rise to fame and offering straight-talking advice for men and the women who love them.
 
A self-described “super-driven superstar alpha male,” Terry Crews embodies the manly ideal for millions worldwide. But as he looks back on his difficult childhood and shares hard-learned lessons from the many humbling experiences he endured to get where he is today, he shows how his own conception of manhood is constantly evolving.
 
Crews offers up a lively, clear-eyed account of the ups and downs of his twenty-five-year marriage, revealing the relationship secrets that have kept it going—and the one dark secret that nearly tore it apart. Along the way, he shares his evolving appreciation for looking good, staying fit, and getting it done for the people you love.
 
Being a man is about more than keeping your core strong. It’s about keeping your core values stronger. With insightful observations on spirituality, work, and family, Terry Crews shows men how to face their inner demons, seek forgiveness from those they’ve wronged, and tear down the walls that prevent them from forging meaningful relationships with others.
 
From the NFL gridiron to the Hollywood backlot, Terry Crews has survived it all with his sense of humor—and his marriage—intact. In Manhood he shows men everywhere that real strength is not measured in muscle mass—unless that muscle is the heart.

From the Hardcover edition.

    I can identify with many of his struggles. After seeing him at our church in Tacoma and listening to his testimony, I knew I needed to read his book. I wish I had read this book 30 years ago when I was 12. I've had some of the same epiphanies in the last few years but reading Terry's story has shown me that I have more room to grow in a number of different areas. I'm grateful and inspired. Thank you Terry Crews. God bless.
  • A great read. Thank you Terry Crews

    An excellent read especially for an adult child of an alcoholic. Laid it all out there for the world to read and that in itself was so very refreshing. I thank Terry and wish to acknowledge that I am now a recipient of his blessings. Simply put, Thank you.

    Awesome! I just came from a dark time in my life. Terry made me feel like I'm not alone with my struggles in marriage and family. This book made me take a serious look at myself and pushed me to do more as a husband, father or just as a man in general. Thank you Terry.
