I am going to group this review with two other books that I think should be read as companion pieces: Untamed by Glennon Doyle and For the Love of Men by Liz Plank.

Glennon Doyle is an amazing speaker and writer, and she manages to always speak truth in such a way that it pierces your soul with knowing. Untamed is for every woman who wants to be the truest and most beautiful version of herself, and for every man willing to support her in that journey. This book explores everything from motherhood and addiction to love and betrayal. And through it all, Glennon is always encouraging us to be our own goddamn cheetahs.

Where Glennon explores the many challenges and expectations put on women by the patriarchy, by society, and by ourselves, in Man Enough, Justin Baldoni explores how those same dictators can hurt men just as they hurt women. He gives us an extremely vulnerable look into his own path of self discovery and how un-learning the many toxic expectations and behaviors thrust upon men by the same patriarchy and society that keep women down, has actually freed him as well. He invites men in to start the journey of analyzing how these expectations of masculinity can poison and how we can start to re-think them in order to heal.

The third part of this group for me is For the Love of Men by Liz Plank. Liz brilliantly dives into the complex layers of masculinity and actually manages to live up to the title as she forges a path from toxic to mindful. This is a MUST READ for both men and women looking to understand the crazy ways that gender roles impact our everyday lives. It is an amazing companion piece to and bridge between the first two books as Liz delves into the history and development of so many different societal expectations and norms, and gives us the tools to start thinking about how to change them.

So I guess the time when you read this book is not a time when you are already super emotional and things are going on, because damnnit, did I cry like a lil whiny baby!!!

There was one part in the book I couldn't get past which is why it only got a 4/5 instead of a 5/5 - when she was being put under, NO ONE ever makes it to 1 .. NO ONE, I think in all my 7 surgeries I made it to 6 at the was frustrating

Now on a normal basis this book was great, assuming that's what all CF people go through it was quite enlightening and heartbreaking all at once - so many ups and downs in this book I just cant.

I'm so happy with how things ended though, not really, but really, it was kind of perfect.

I honestly can't wait for the movie to come out!!!!

I read the book after watching the movie and personally found both equally great! I love that the book was also written in the perspective of Will too which is nice to see. There's definitely more depth to some of the characters in the book and not much to complain about it. I did find some of the events occuring in the book a little cheesy but it didn't bother me too much. If you watched and liked the movie, I think this will be a good read!
