“Why don’t men read the instructions?”

It’s a question you’ve likely heard before. Maybe you’ve even witnessed the age-old stereotype, watching your dad assemble a piece of furniture or your friend fix an appliance. Over your shoulder you hear someone ask, “Why don’t men read the instructions?”

I’ve wrestled with that question for a while. I’ve never seen the manual as something to ignore. Whether you’re building a model airplane, cooking a recipe or learning a new skill, it helps to have a little instruction. That’s what my blog is about.

So come with me as I take a closer look at health and wellness, relationships, DIY and the great outdoors. Hopefully I can share my interests with you and we’ll learn, step by step, how to make ourselves better men.
