Book Description

May 2 2012

This limited-edition collection contains a wealth of information and inspiration for the modern man. Included inside are the following books:

  • The Art of Manliness. This book is dedicated to helping men uncover what manliness means in the 21st century, from rediscovering the outdoors to dressing with panache to becoming a good father.
  • The Art of Manliness: Manvotionals. This book contains the manliest wisdom of the ages--a myriad of poems, quotes, and essays designed to inspire men to live life to the fullest and realize their complete potential as men.

Together, housed in a classic cigar box, they make the perfect gift for any man (or soon-to-be man) who is conscious of leaving his mark on this world. (This $38 value is priced at only $29.99.)

Also includes 6 drink coasters!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Read, Terrible Condition July 10 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I received this box set exactly on time on my doorstep. I am a big fan of the art of manliness website and thought i would purchase the books. The back of the cigar box fell apart upon opening the box and the books seemed like they had been scratched and folded. Its a good thing these are great books because i am quite upset about the condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Read! Jan. 21 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good solid read in times when Manliness seems to be on the decline. Many men could benefit from a few sessions with this book.

The coasters included in the set were nothing special, but it was a convenient way to buy both of these books at once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Necessity For Every Man Young or Old April 16 2012
By Kat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I stumbled across artofmanliness.com several months ago and was thrown back by the site. It is fun to read and has very good advice and articles on many topics that men encounter throughout their lives. I love the blog so much that I subscribed to it on my kindle, downloaded the book onto it, and bought the hard copy versions in this boxed set.

Quality: This boxed set includes Brett and Kate's two books and six drink coasters. The books are made from quality materials and the covers are very thick and sturdy. The coasters are sturdy, made from a cardboard material, that I can see lasting a good several years. The cigar box that the books and coasters come in is fairly sturdy, again made from a cardboard material, that will last a long time with care. Overall no complaints about the quality of the product, especially at the low price.

Content: The first book The Art of Manliness: Classic Skills and Manners for the Modern Man has a lot of good advice for each aspect of a man: Gentleman, Friend, Hero, Lover, Father, Outdoorsman, Leader, and Virtuous Man. They include many How-To's and useful information for every man. The second book The Art of Manliness - Manvotionals: Timeless Wisdom and Advice on Living the 7 Manly Virtues includes advice on living the seven manly virtues: Manliness, Courage, Industry, Resolution, Self-Reliance, Discipline, and Honor. Each chapter includes quotes, poems, or essays that feed the mind and offer great insights. Both books are filled with wonderful illustrations that engage the reader. Finally, the coasters have manly quotes on them from people like Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Benjamin Franklin.

Overall, I am thrilled with this purchase. Definitely worth the money, and I look forward to more wisdom from Brett and Kate McKay over at the artofmanliness.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Art of Manliness is spot on Sept. 10 2012
By A. Gentile - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this collection for myself after viewing the AoM website. I was very impressed with the books. They contain sound advice and time tested manly wisdom from men in all walks of life, for men in all walks of life. I can't stand "man' products that make men out to be over sexualized, lust fanatics or products that insist we must love hiking or fixing cars to be a real man. This book praises virtue and duty and seeks to inspire men to be gentlemen rather than a mob of beer swilling buffoons. I would highly recommend this collection to EVERY man becuase it contains the essence of manhood within it's pages. Virtue, duty, honor, respect, integrity, courage...these are indeed the Art of Manliness!
(For the record, I do not like hiking but love walking around nature and experiencing God's creative power, I fix my car becuase i need to(but have amazing respect for any guy who can do it well) and though I am not a beer swilling buffoon, I have been known to enjoy one too many Sam Adams Oktoberfest brews on occasion...these do not make me a man, they simpoly confirm I enjoy being a man:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Art of Manliness June 2 2012
By Karonian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A must read for men and young men, who wish to live their lives with more honor, courage, and chivalry. Back to the basics when a man's word and a handshake were all that was needed. My grandsons received the box sets for H/S graduation. Son in laws got them for Christmas. Good for direction and moral compass I think.
Thank You Brett and Kay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good deal and great books. May 21 2012
By Matthew J. Bastinck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this set because I am a big fan of the blog and have been debating on buying the books for some time now. I couldn't pass up the offer for a box set like this. You get both books which in value alone is more than what you are spending for this box set. I have been reading the books on and off since I recieved them to always give me some inspiration as to ways I can live in the manly fashion throughout the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for guys who want to be real men Jan. 7 2014
By Mike Woodley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A good read, written for men by men. For the guys lucky enough to know
the men who shined their shoes, went to a Barber Shop for a hair cut and
read the evening news paper the information and advice presented will be
a refreshing review. Sadly, for modern society this information for modern
young men will be new perhaps even shocking because this generation of
men were missing from their lives. The cigar box and coasters were a nice
addition. These books were given as gifts and were well received. BTW these
guys have an incredible web site with more books and goodies.
