From filmmaker, actor, and author Justin Baldoni comes a real-talk, self-esteem-building guidebook that helps boys ages 11 and up embrace their feelings and fears instead of repress them.

Filled with activities, sidebars, and inspirational quotes, this book is the perfect social-emotional learning tool for parents and educators to jump-start conversations about masculinity with the boys in their lives.

WARNING: THIS MIGHT BE THE MOST HONEST BOOK YOU’VE EVER READ

Have you ever noticed that there are unwritten rules that tell boys how to act, think, and feel? Nobody knows where they came from, but one day—BAM!—you suddenly feel these invisible forces, pushing you to follow the rules of masculinity, even if they don’t make you happy.

This book isn’t about learning the rules of the boys’ club, it’s about UNLEARNING them. It’s a get-real guidebook that will show you how to be:



  • Brave enough to reveal who you really are


  • Smart enough to ask questions


  • Cool enough to feel all your emotions


  • Confident enough to know your worth


  • Strong enough to speak your truth

—and much, much more.

Be prepared: This book is raw and surprising. There is no subject off-limits or lies detected. Sometimes things might get a little uncomfortable, but that’s an important part of getting to know—and believe in—yourself.

Don’t worry, you're not on this journey alone, so let’s jump in together to become the smartest, bravest, strongest HUMANS we can be!

Justin Baldoni is an actor, director, producer, New York Times bestselling author, and entrepreneur whose efforts are focused on creating impactful media and entertainment. Baldoni is the co-founder of Wayfarer Studios, an independent production studio focused on creating purpose-driven, multi-platform content that serves as true agents for social change.

Baldoni is well-known for his starring role as “Rafael” on The CW’s “Jane the Virgin,” but has since moved more behind the camera with films such as CLOUDS and FIVE FEET APART among his directing and producing credits. Currently, Baldoni is directing, executive producing, and starring in the highly anticipated film adaptation of Colleen Hoover’s #1 bestselling novel IT ENDS WITH US. In addition, he hosts the popular, Webby- nominated podcast, The Man Enough Podcast, which explores what it means to be a man today and how rigid gender roles have affected all people. He has also added author to his credits having penned his inaugural book Man Enough: Undefining My Masculinity in 2021 and then Boys Will Be Human in 2022, which went on to become a New York Times bestseller. Both aim to create a safer and more equitable world by calling on men to undefine masculinity by taking accountability, promoting vulnerability, emotional expression, and authentic connections with empathy and respect for all.
