Any man serious about investing in his mental health will want to keep this invaluable resource on his nightstand.” —Anna Borges, author of The More or Less Definitive Guide to Self-Care, senior health editor at SELF Magazine
“Listen up guys: that single square foot of real estate between your ears is home to the world’s most complex supercomputer. The problem is, it doesn’t exactly come with a handy user manual (but who has time for instructions anyway, right?). So grab your favorite Montblanc, colored pencil, Sharpie, or Space Pen and let Ryan Howes be your humorous, wise, and encouraging guide on this inner journey. Use this journal as a gut checking, butt-kicking, eureka-moment generator as you connect the dots toward greater clarity, confidence, and creativity. The work of building a better YOU moves from the inside out, and your first step starts on page 1. Let’s hear you say ‘challenge accepted!’” —Jared DeFife, PhD, clinical psychologist and adult ADHD advocate
