BE A MAN: How I Spent One Year Drinking, Shaving, Farming, and Fathering My Way Toward Masculinity

My name is Peter Andre, and I’m not a man.  I take gummy vitamins.  I require Band-Aids for paper cuts.  I’ve been called petite in mixed company.

Over the course of one year, I attempted to fill in all the gaps of man knowledge that have escaped me so far. I chronicled my journey online in 2013, and published my favorite essays in print in 2014. Below are excerpts of the essays you can find in the book, full entries for the weeks that didn't make the print edition, and special extras I wrote while working on the blog.
