Between mass media, cultural standards, and well-meaning men's leaders, chances are that you are overwhelmed with expectations of what it means to be a man. As a result, many men constantly chase an external ideal that often results in unfulfilling work, addiction, obsession with sex and pornography, depression, unsatisfying relationships, and a sense of meaninglessness, confusion, and feeling lost.

Featuring fifty body-based practices that can be done in the midst of daily life, this book by men's leader, educator, and coach David Franklin presents new possibilities for being a man in today's world. Outlining the tenets of Radical Men, David offers new perspectives that shatter current notions of masculinity. Using both personal stories and examples from his work with clients, he presents practical guidelines to support you in discovering who you are and how to live from your core in order to experience a deep sense of purpose, meaning, and connection in all areas of your life.

Radical Men will help you:

- Break free from traditional and current ideas of what it means to be a man
- Know your purpose: who you are and why you're alive
- Cultivate dynamic, intimate, and fulfilling relationships

About the Author:

David Franklin, MA, has twenty years of experience teaching, facilitating, and coaching hundreds of people in workshop, group, ritual, and one-on-one settings. As an active participant and leader in the men's movement since the early 90's, an ordained minister, and certified somatic erotic educator, David incorporates his expertise in leadership and organizational development, mindfulness, spiritual development, and natural history from an indigenous perspective to offer simple, down-to-earth practices for personal and cultural growth and transformation. In addition to his work as a coach and educator, David is a professional guitarist who has taught and performed for over twenty years. A native New Yorker and bagel and pizza aficionado, he currently lives near Seattle, WA.

Review:

David Franklin has put forth a map for men that can surely support them in discovering who they really are. In Radical Men, David shares his heartfelt wisdom and intellectual understanding of the challenges men face and provides men with an insightful roadmap to guide them on a journey back to themselves. This is a must-read for any man who is ready to experience his authentic self and is committed to living life as a heart-centered Radical Man. I give Radical Men my highest recommendation.

-- Coach Michael Taylor, Author, Speaker, Host of A New Conversation With Men radio show

With the current plethora of self-help books on the market these days, why should anyone buy this book? The answer is simple David Franklin provides nothing that you should be. How refreshing is that? In Radical Men, David writes from deep experience; within himself, working with others, and in groups. He provides a comprehensive and non-dogmatic set of simple, clear and effective practices to drop the shoulds and discover your authentic self. I highly recommend this book!

-- Jeff McAuliffe, Co-chair, School of Organizational Leadership and Transformation, Saybrook University

There is a way David greets you and draws you in when you first see him that is warm, gentle, and secure. In a quiet, deep voice, he asks, How are you? and in that moment you feel okay. Connected. Not alone.

When I read Radical Men, my life was in a major state of transition. I was searching for someone to give me an adequate definition of who I was. As I read this book, I could hear David s calming yet purposeful voice coming out through the text. I found comfort in knowing that I was not alone in what I was going through. My fears and questions were not only common, they were functional. Through David's leading by example and offering years of experience within its pages, Radical Men provides tools by which we can effectively retrain old habits and outdated ways of thinking and emerge with a stronger sense of self and a greater sense of community as men.

-- Chris Soldevilla, Actor, Coyote Ugly and The Wedding Pact

If you've been frustrated with the old paradigms of men s work, or even some of the newer ones, join the club. I've read all the books, taken many workshops, tried to read the minds of women I dated, and still had no clue who or what I was supposed to be. David Franklin's Radical Men came at the perfect time and delivered the perfect message ironically about not seeking perfection, but rather being and modeling vulnerability and radical authenticity. As I put the suggested practices into place, a deeper sense of belonging and connection arose. It was a refreshing read of an old topic that got me excited to continue reading.

-- Dave Markowitz, Medical Intuitive, Spiritual Healer, and Author of Healing With Source

Radical Men rips the straitjacket off men who are struggling to be men according to someone else s crazy-making standards. David Franklin deconstructs our limiting social constructs about masculinity and guides us through 50 practical, life-changing exercises to wake up to the moment-by-moment presence that is always inside us and deepen our understanding of ourselves and the radically unique expressions that we each bring to life. Want to be a Radical Man? Stop playing someone else s crazy game, and discover your own true satisfaction. David Franklin is here to show you how. -- David Cates, Mentor and Coach, deepmasculine.com --Chris Soldevilla, Actor, Coyote Ugly and The Wedding Pact
