A poignant look at boyhood, in the form of a heartfelt letter from comedian Michael Ian Black to his teenage son before he leaves for college, and a radical plea for rethinking masculinity and teaching young men to give and receive love. "I know, I know. I tell you I love you every day," Black writes. "Multiple times a day. It's probably annoying to you that I say it so much, but I think it's important. Our reluctance as men to express love is part of what I want to talk to you about in these pages." In time for Father's Day, A Better Man is a thoughtful, witty, ambitious examination of the meaning of manhood and the "toxic masculinity" that is being blamed for so much of the violence across America today. Michael Ian Black weaves experiences from his own childhood, where being told to "be a man" meant not expressing fear or grief, even after he lost his father at a young age, with advice to his 18-year-old son about TKTK. And throughout, he takes apart a culture that has led to mass shootings in places like Sandy Hook, near Black's own home, and Parkland. "My dream," he says, "is that this book will help all parents talk to their boys about navigating the complicated world of manhood, learning from their fathers’ successes and failures, and becoming a better man.”
