5.0 von 5 Sternen A book ever man should read... and any woman who loves a man 20. Mai 2014
Von owen marcus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The book is an easy read. The narrative of Terry’s story keeps you engaged as you travel through his life escaping Flint, MI as a teenager. Then the book travels through playing football and his escaping from the traditional role models of being a man.

Terry speaks about not being the strong silent type... not being the Marlboro Man. When a man's man speaks about vulnerability, men listen. The model of strength and courage while being open and standing in integrity is new for most men. I encourage both men and women to read Terry’s book for the entertainment and for the direction it gives.
If this planet is to change, men need to step up in a new way, a way that few men ever saw. I wish Terry great success with this book. He’s doing a big service for men and all those that love them.

5.0 von 5 Sternen As a women, I loved this book! 21. Mai 2014
Von Samantha - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Loved this book! Such a good read! I seriously couldn't put it down. Manhood isn't just for the men, the life lessons and experiences have totally spoken to me. One of my favorite quotes from the book is- Every man has 3 things in them: a fool, a victim, and a king. Whichever you feed is the one you become. This book has so much heart and soul and the reader can take so much away from it to use in everyday life to aid you in becoming the best version of yourself. It also gives you a better understanding as to what the men in your life may be going through. All around great book, I definitely recommend this read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen I heard about this book on NPR and was impressed with Terry Crews interview 20. August 2014
Von bookster - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book talks about struggle that almost every man deals with. It's not a self help book in the sense that it has 5 ways to be a better man but it does have lots of stories that teach lessons like working hard, keeping your head down and keep going, accept help from others, get a mentor, spend within your means, be truthful and honest with your family, say sorry to people you wronged, admit mistakes, forgive those who hurt you and try to understand them, indiscretions big or small hurt your relationships, being thankful for what you have, do a good job even when no one is watching, be the best at what you do and more. Terry Crews even talks about his insecurities as a man which you would not think a man like him would have. I am so thankful for this book and would love to sit down and talk to Terry Crews someday and learn more about him and how he grew up to be a good man.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Man's struggle from poverty in Flint MI to success in professional and family life. 8. Juni 2014
Von Stephen Mahoney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Terry Crews describes the problems he faced in life with good insight humor and honesty. He got to that point only after many failures, struggles, self assessment, introspection, religion/faith/spirituality and help from psychologists. He was raised in a family where his parents constantly fought and his father beat his mother. He used education and a football scholarship to escape Flint but then could not make it on 6 NFL teams so he moved to Los Angeles to try to use is creative talents (drawing, script writing) to get involved in the movie industry. He lucked out in getting an audition, that a friend told him about, by being fit and athletic. After a sexual indiscretion, and the threat of divorce from his wife, Rebecca, of over 20 years, he went through the process of self discovery, and realized he had been manipulative, non-empathetic, and totally narcissistic in his dealings with people. He describes an incident in which he took an online psychological assessment and realized he was narcissistic. He ran downstairs and told his wife and daughter he discovered he was narcissistic and his wife said: "Ya Think?" Crews says that most of his good decisions were made when he listened to Rebecca. After reading this book I watched Expendables 2, White Chicks, and Idiocracy. Crews has good screen presence especially when given creative space in the comedies. Idiocracy is actually a movie everyone should watch because of the political statement it makes.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Quite a Journey! 25. Mai 2014
Von Suzanne Titkemeyer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The last few days I've been devouring a book by one of my favorite comedic actors, "Manhood" by Terry Crews. You know Terry Crews. The Old Spice guy, The Expendables, White Chicks, Everyone Hates Chris, Idiocracy, Brooklyn 99 and many other films and television shows. He was also in the NFL.

I've always liked him since seeing him in the films 'Idiocracy' and 'White Chicks'

Every time after White Chicks an Old Spice commercial would air I'd point at the screen and say, 'Hey! It's that guy!' before I finally figured out his name and followed him on Facebook. He always seems to post very upbeat and positive messages on his time line and being that I'm something of a smartass I like some positivity to counteract my own sarcasm. Plus he makes me laugh and I love to laugh.

The man makes me laugh and inspires me in my workouts. So when he came out with a book titled "Manhood" - an autobiographical journey to his own manhood I could not resist. I figured the book would be about his awesome life as a popular kid/sports hero in school leading to a college scholarship followed by the NFL, scads of moolah and Hollywood. I guessed very wrong.

Terry says early on in the book that he thought about titling it "My Life as a Jerk" and that might have been a fitting title for some of it. He had the entire 'I am The Greatest' entitlement issues of a former NFLer I got to experience first hand in my college years when I went on a series of dates with a former member of the Atlanta Falcons NFL team. Three dates exactly.

How jerky was the former Falcon? Third date he tried to take me to the Motel 6, telling me everyone puts out on the third date and I was hopelessly old fashioned if I thought otherwise. He'd wined and dined me, now it was my turn to show some appreciation. He ended up driving off in anger because I'd told him no, there was not going to be any sexy fun time at the Motel 6 and left me by the side of the road to call a cab. Later I discovered he'd also been seeing this other girl I worked with I didn't know well. We ended up bonding over margaritas after work and tales of how awful former Falcon was. She ended up being my maid of honor at my wedding.

My point with that little story is that guys that have been told they are the greatest and end up, if only for a year or two, doing something not everyone can do, like playing in the National Football League, sometimes have lots of entitlement issues. Terry Crews shared his, warts and all, while talking about his years in the league. His honest is refreshing in a world where everyone wants to pretend they are perfect.

What blew me away about this honest self-reflective book was not the fame and glory of the football field or acting in Hollywood. It was the fact that here is another person, just like all of us at No Longer Quivering, that has been spiritually abused and had to work through that abuse to heal and get to freedom. It's a good recovery read.

Crews was raised in a very religious household with abuse and alcoholism and was an exceptionally good boy with a few dark secrets of his own. Once he went to college he suffered at the hands of Maranatha Campus Ministries, just like NLQ's Kristen Rosser. His story of his treatment by those in leadership ring sadly true.

But even with everything he's been through Crews has always managed to hold on to his spirituality and keep moving forward, from jerk to a much better human being. Isn't that really the story (or it should be) of all of us? Moving from strength to strength to be kinder, more compassionate and loving.

Even if you don't know who Terry Crews is I have to say 'Manhood' is a great read and very inspirational. Terry Crews is on a journey to be a better man.
