Book Review: 'Wake Up: The Awakened Man' (Edited by Steven E. Schmitt)
‘If you don’t build your dreams, someone will hire you to help build theirs.’
Editor Steven E. Schmitt has worked with world-renowned authors, top doctors, CEOs of major companies, top fiction and non-fiction authors, and owners of top franchises, helping authors who have a powerful message learn how to get it out to the world. His mission is quite fulfilled in this fascinating book about the masculine psyche.
As he states in his Introduction, ‘this is a practical workbook about how men from around the world have in their own unique way overcome intergenerational dysfunction and trauma, the victim mentality, selfishness, stagnation, fear of the unknown, and much more to achieve transformation, prosperity, and health. We believe it will provide a comprehensive insight into how men have transformed themselves. In fact, I guarantee that there is literally something for everyone, from eliminating excuses, practicing self-mastery, goalsetting, the joys of fatherhood, to carving out a career that provides meaning, purpose, and prosperity to one’s self, family, and greater community.’
In this impressive collection of the voices of twenty successful and powerful men we learn how to overcome setbacks and roadblocks and come out a more satisfied and in charge and happy “awakened’ person. One of the reasons the book is so accessible to a wide audience is Schmitt’s manner of spreading the influence of many different types of men’s stories. By including a brief bio and photo of each of the 20 contributors the words gain in impact and influence.
This is a very informative and inspiring collection of the male perspective – insights in how dreams are accessible!. Recommended.
