Author and therapist, Jed Diamond, returns to the show to share what he’s learned from doing 70 years of men’s work. It is summed up in his Good Men Manifesto.

“Men can’t be fully alive to themselves, to the women they love, to their families and friends, unless they understand and embrace their maleness.” ~ Jed Diamond

Rooted in biology, evolutionary science, and research, The Good Men Manifesto is comprised of twenty elements. Jed wrote this to help both men and women better understand maleness, and it is the foundation of his upcoming book, 12 Rules for Good Men.
