The Men's Code of Honor touches a raw nerve in all males as it compels them to answer the ultimate question: Do they know how to "act like a man"? Drawing from male codes of conduct through history, this book is, as one young man put it, "everything a man knows he should be, looking deep into our own minds to find what makes us men, and if need be, how we can correct ourselves to be that man inside."

Writer Dan Stradford opens by telling how a friend's son "asked me something about the way men treat women. I told him that an unspoken code exists among men that we all tend to subscribe to and this guides how we treat women. His father nodded in agreement. This brief incident passed but the moment stayed with me. Why is it, I wondered, that this 'code' is unspoken? Why hasn't anyone written it down?"

And so began a five-year quest into the history of men's codes of conduct. Searching through military codes, athletic codes, cowboy codes, and many others, Stradford found 66 rules of conduct that had withstood the test of time - the essence of the unwritten code of honor amongst men.

Each chapter covers a different sector - including Integrity, Duty, Work, Courage, Women, Children, and Family. To bring the points home, Stradford opens each with a raw story from his own life, rising from the poverty of St. Louis slums without a father to guide him.

The Men's Code of Honor is a manual for women, too, as it lays bare the core drives, motives, and duties of men and how to measure the integrity and reliability of the men in their lives.

Find out why this book has been hailed as "masterful," "brilliantly written," "transforming" and a must-read for men and women, young or old!
