UNDEFINING MY MASCULINITY
In his debut book, actor and director Justin Baldoni invites us on a gripping exploration of masculinity by digging deep within himself and the scripts he’s learned since childhood. Through bold and transparent storytelling, he tackles difficult, sometimes uncomfortable topics including strength and vulnerability, relationships and marriage, body image, sex and sexuality, racial justice, gender equality, and fatherhood. Justin offers readers the essential tools he has discovered on his journey, inviting us to define for ourselves what it means to be “man enough” and, more importantly, to be human in today’s world.

“Man Enough filled my heart with courage to do and be better. Oozing truth and love this book was absolutely necessary for me to read. If you’re like me and searching for a push in the right direction.. you’ve found it.”
"In a world drowning in harmful ideas about masculinity, Man Enough is the life raft we desperately need. Wise, vulnerable, trustworthy, and hilarious, this book will liberate lives, redeem relationships, and help carry us all to higher ground."
“Man Enough takes us on an intensely personal yet universal journey as Justin Baldoni explores how the messages of masculinity have shaped him individually and us collectively. His brave reflections invite us into our own stories with more empathy, compassion, and freedom for ourselves and for the men in our lives. This book shines a needed light on our inherent self-worth and what it truly means to be “man enough”.”
“This is the most important addition to the conversation around masculinity in a decade because it is solution based and allows everyone access to this conversation in a safe way. Justin is masterful in encouraging and guiding men in unconsciously examining their own masculinity and how it's affecting their lives and the world around them by being transparent and vulnerable about his own growth.”
