The Truth About Men
What Men and Women Need to Know
New York Times bestselling author and Hollywood producer DeVon Franklin speaks out frankly and openly about why men behave the way they do–and what everyone—men and women alike— need to know about it.
“Are men really dogs? No.
But it’s time we learn to stop acting like we are.”
– DeVon Franklin
We hear it all the time: Men cheat. Men love power. Men love sex. Men are greedy. Men are dogs.
So, what is the real truth about men?
Analyzing his own life and struggle as a man, listening to stories from other men, and in the wake of the #metoo and #timesup movements, Franklin concludes that all men share the same struggle. In THE TRUTH ABOUT MEN: What Men and Women Need to Know , he uses the metaphor of a dog that needs training as a way to explain this struggle and explore why negative behavior in men can persist which leads them to act against their vows, their integrity and even their character.
“No matter how adorable a dog may be,” he writes, “there is nothing cute about an untrained dog,” who can put itself and others at risk.
Franklin provides a manual for how men can change, on both a personal and societal level by providing practical solutions for helping men learn how to resist temptation, how to practice self-control and how to love. He’s also transparent about the challenges he faces as he endeavors daily to “Master the Dog” within.
However, THE TRUTH ABOUT MEN isn’t just for men. Franklin gives women insight into everything they need to know about men. He offers women a real-time understanding of how men’s struggle affects them, insights that can help them navigate their relationships with men, and information on how to heal from the damage that some misbehaving men may have inflicted.
Some may say it’s a scary time for men but Franklin believes it’s only a scary time for men who refuse to do their work and get control of their struggle.
This groundbreaking book is a raw, informative, and compelling look at a problem we are all wrestling with, and offers a positive and inspiring way forward for both men and women alike.
