Learning to be a good man used to be part of our culture; sons learned from fathers, nephews learned from uncles, apprentices learned from masters. But today this rarely happens. Modern men have to figure it out by themselves. American author David H Wagner helps men to find their best self with Backbone, his practical, step-by-step guide to help men know themselves deeply, root out weaknesses, enhance strengths, and upgrade their experience of work, relationships, and spirituality. In this author talk, David will discuss ideas from Backbone about the challenges of modern men and lead a practical, no-nonsense conversation about what men need to do to lift themselves up, find their “thump”, and create the life of their dreams.
