Publisher's Summary

In the current cultural narrative of rules for behavior and interaction, The Code is a refreshing examination of the guidelines that can keep young men from making mistakes. Even when the consequences of those mistakes may not become relevant or public for years. The Code is an indispensable collection of honorable rules to live by.
Boys will listen and learn from it. "Guys" should be guided by these rules to become men. Men should give it as gifts to those who can still use a little extra help. Women should listen to it to see the world through a man's eyes. It is written with a pleasing mix of reasoned argument and personal anecdotes, intelligent language and good humor, and a feminine perspective on each of the rules which add depth to the conversation.
The Code is a refreshing change from a culture in which values and ethical stances are routinely dumbed down to five-second sound bites and bumper-sticker slogans.

Common sense for future Manly Men

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No this book is pure unmitigated B.S.

Would you recommend The Code: A Man's Rules for Living Life, Having Fun, and Getting Dressed to your friends? Why or why not?

Only to the so called friends I did not like.Put a young man on the streets of any major city of the world and he will learn more about being a man then this book.

Have you listened to any of Jack Dale and Carolyn Strauss ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No but they are good narrators.

Could you see The Code: A Man's Rules for Living Life, Having Fun, and Getting Dressed being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Are you kidding. It took a very good snow job to get any publisher to agree to publish this crap.

Any additional comments?

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

A good starting point!

This would be a book I would recommend to a young man 13 - 17 to introduce the idea of being a man. Would also be a good refresher for a guy in his 20's. Think it would be especially useful for young men being raised in a single parent - female household. Worth the credit and the time for a listen.


This book was provided at no cost for a fair and honest review.
