Books, Boyhood to Manhood

We liked this collection of books found on Earl Hipp's Man Making website. Some of them are literary classics. Order them from your local library.

Mentors should always read books first before giving them to their mentees. Discussion of ideas is inevitable and desirable.

Other Hipp links:

Note his disclaimer preceding the book list.

This is a collection of titles that have either been referred to in the Man-Making book or suggested by contributors. They are in no particular order and I don’t necessarily endorse the ideas in every book. I offer them as a broad spectrum of view points on man-making, manhood, and related topics. Clicking a title will take you directly to or the book’s website where you can read more about the book and purchase it if you’re interested.
