‘Iron and Cotton’ Author Mike Povenz Talks Candidly with The Good Men Project
“Most men have not had many of the discussions I share in this book, and the chance of passing on wisdom from one man to the next is continually missed. “
My interview guest today is Mike Povenz, author of the new book Iron and Cotton: A man‘s field guide to marriage. From his website: “Mike Povenz has a passion for helping men discover the best version of themselves and for guiding them to be better husbands and fathers. He is the founder of Modern Chivalry Men, an organization inspiring men to positive change and community involvement. He is also the host of the Iron and Cotton podcast. Mike has served for years as a men’s group leader and is the recipient of the Life Changer Award. He lives in North Georgia with his beloved wife of 20 years. They are the proud parents of three children: Lily, Lachlan, and Breckyn, along with 3 dogs, 2 guinea pigs, 4 chickens, and 1 psychotic fish. Mike loves the outdoors, fishing, boating, skiing, cooking on cast iron, and time with family and friends.” [Click to read the interview.]
‘The Power of Connection To Build Strong Men’
An Interview with Michael Reichert, author of “How To Raise a Boy”
“In the book How to Raise a Boy, Dr. [Michael] Reichert paves the way for a constructive reimagining of how a boy becomes a good man. The way to do this, he says, is not to force a way of being onto any boy, but instead to offer them a safe place to grow and connect through listening and by encouraging conversations about feelings, emotions, and physical pain (the area where boys are told most often to “suck it up”). Reichert offers the why and how, citing the latest insights from psychology and neuroscience, as well as stories about the boys he’s encountered over the years, to give readers the tools they need to help build more self-aware, caring men.” — from the book’s publisher, Penguin Random House
Dr. Reichert recently talked with The Good Men Project about what he calls “the power of connection to build strong men.” [Click to read the interview.]

The Journey of a Son: An Interview with ‘Views from the Cockpit’ Author, Ross Victory
“I must remember that ego becomes toxic at some point, soul will take me all the way. What I read, what I watch, what I think, who I associate with—all can perpetuate or block my efforts to align.” — Ross Victory
Views from the Cockpit: The Journey of a Son is a memoir born from pain. Page by page, year by year, tender father-son memories of the airplane watching transform into a nightmarish, turbulent family drama.
