Terry Crews on Manhood...

....by vocation and partly because I have so little time for leisure reading, I usually stick to academic titles.  But this book by Terry Crews, the former NLF player and now comedian-actor, sounds fun and maybe good.  

In an interview with NPR, Crews said: "The book should've been called, Terry Crews Is an Idiot and This Is How I Survived. I'm serious! There was so much astounding immaturity in this book."  Idiot.  That's probably 50 percent of manliness in one word.  

And there was also this spot-on comment during the NPR interview:   

Manhood used to be the Marlboro Man — my way, the highway, I walk alone! And the Marlboro Man is always by himself. Family, kids? Can't hang with him. They don't understand him. What happens is, that guy in his 60s, he's back there in his shed and he's crying his eyes out. He's alone. No one wants to be with him. And I averted that future.
