Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

As a leader in teaching, training, and transforming boys in Detroit, Jason Wilson shares his own story of discovering what it means to be a man in this life-changing memoir.

His grandfather's lynching in the deep South, the murders of his two older brothers, and his verbally harsh and absent father all worked together to form Jason Wilson's childhood. But it was his decision to acknowledge his emotions and yield to God's call on his life that made Wilson the man and leader he is today.

As the founder of one of the country's most esteemed youth organizations, Wilson has decades of experience in strengthening the physical, mental, and emotional spirit of boys and men. In Cry Like a Man, Wilson explains the dangers men face in our culture's definition of masculinity and gives readers hope that healing is possible.

As Wilson writes, My passion is to help boys and men find strength to become courageously transparent about their own brokenness as I shed light on the symptoms and causes of childhood trauma and 'father wounds.' I long to see men free themselves from emotional incarceration--to see their minds renewed, souls weaned, and relationships restored.

   Just Wow!
Jason, I am in awe of you. You are a great storyteller, I felt like I was there with you, he said. You shared your pain and you kept it real with your authenticity, Taylor said. It was a great read and an honour to read your book, Mary.
   Great author !
My son absolutely loved this book, and I'll probably never regret buying it for him. We're delighted with the customer service, said Dr. Paul Vassallo, "and would recommend it to anyone."
   Must Read If You Question So Why's
I sat down and read this book one weekend. Jason is a man of heart, Tunick said. Yes, he is open about conversation that we seem to void when it comes to our men. I read it because I am willing to innerstand the hearts of a Soul that I never would get a chance to experience.
   Emotionally Liberating!!
For decades I thought power was based on how much weight you could lift and how many men you could knock out. Even though I'm not technically proficient at lifting a dumbbell, I can break a jaw. But real power resides in a man who can navigate through the ever-expanding pressures of this world without succumbing to his negative emotions. To feel something painful and not push it away, Raymond said. In fact, I never picked up a book, and finished it in one sitting. The book has brought back many of the anguished memories of the years that have passed without anyone knowing what happened next. It's a start of a long process, but I'm not ashamed to say that it's emotionally liberating to let go of the dam and let the suppressed tears flow. It can be stressed enough that if we're to stop the cycle of sons growing up without fathers present, it starts with us being free from our internal prison of suppressed pain and guilt. This book is hands down one of the great reads of all time.
   Not a do list, but an example
When I saw the movie, I thought it would show how to be more emotional, Hepburn said. Instead of showing his anger, Mr. Wilson shows how he went from blocking his emotions to experiencing and showing them.
   Misleading, religious book.
No where in the book does it mention the name of the Lord, or even the name of the church, yet every chapter is plastered with images of Jesus.
   Good read
An excellent read, too. I got to know Dr. Goin by using his tools to open up more emotionally, spiritually and mentally. I may reread it soon, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Cool read.
   Powerful read!
I pre-ordered this book after following Mr Wilson on YouTube, and I couldn't put it down until it arrived at my doorstep. I recommend this book to anyone who reads it. It not only provides knowledge, but also awareness and spiritual strategy for men to maneuver through and around the inevitable trials of every man's battle. Thanks to Jason Wilson, we have a new tool to help us do that. Sir Richard, I have a lot of respect for you, Mr. Rule told the judge. Marvin Wilson, Wilson's father, said the singer was "100 percent" behind the project.
   Every guy who cries and doesn't must read this book.
Thanks to the Lord for using Jason Wilson, Morgenthau said. The book was so transparent, Mr. Rule told the judge. It captures how a life saturated with torment and conflict can be malleable in the hands of the Lord. I was crying many times in every chapter, amazed at the grace of God, he said. It also helped me look at insecurities within, so that I can love my wife better and lead her heart, as well as the hearts of our sons. Glory to Yahweh, Amen. Jason Wilson, you rock! I'm excited to be working with you again, Mr. D'Antonio said. It's great to be back home, said Blair.
   Epic, gripping life story of finding goodness, freedom, and strength
For the longest time he walked his own path, the one that looked like it would get him what he needed and where he wanted to go. He did not have the exact numbers he needed, Mr. O'Neill said. He did not have the love he needed, Tunick said. But he says experiences and people taught him how to be a good citizen. He is a shining example of what can be done with youth, Raymond said. There are some very good videos of The Cave of Adullam. He also said that Hepburn looked forward to the movie. Thanks to Jason Wilson, we are able to find our true nature and to teach young men and boys true strength.
