Midlife is not a crisis. It’s the sweet spot.
For far too long, men have been told that midlife is when we start to die. But it’s actually the first time that most of us really begin to figure life out.
Four years ago, this realization led performance coach Greg Scheinman to create a no-BS community in which men who have been around long enough to own their mistakes and celebrate their successes could gather to maximize the second half of their lives.
Since its creation, the Midlife Male Movement has gone on to change thousands of lives through inspiring weekly newsletters and insightful podcast conversations with top CEOs, athletes, chefs, authors, and other high performers.
The Midlife Male philosophy is centered on the six Fs:
A Midlife Male strives for purpose and joy, takes action, asks questions, accepts responsibility, embraces curiosity, and leaves a legacy his loved ones can proudly inherit. He’s not going through the motions and bitching about the wrongs of the world. Simply not being a dick is a low bar to clear. You can do better than that.
Written with humor and vulnerability, The Midlife Male provides a must-read guide for men to boost confidence, accountability, and creativity that strips away notions of traditional manhood—whatever that even means. It’s a call to open up to being your best and authentic self . . . and have a helluva lot of fun in the process.

This was a wonderful book. I don't often give five-star reviews, but this one deserves it. Any man who is in midlife or approaching it should read this book.
Male Self-Help/ Lifestyle Podcast Turned Book. This is essentially a podcaster turning his podcast (apparently of the same name as the title of the book) into a book. Each chapter begins with an excerpt from an interview from one of the episodes of the podcast, then the author continues the theme of the chapter with his own commentary for seemingly 2,000 - 3,000 words or so while including a few lists of various things related to the chapter at hand. As such and given the nature of the podcast in question, this is primarily geared towards adult males and yes, has the occasional cursing in it as a result, but there is enough here that women *may* find useful as well that it might warrant a read from a particularly curious woman. One refreshing thing to note is that there isn't really anything "toxic" about the masculinity portrayed herein, Scheinman's schtick seems to be mostly "embrace who you are, do the right thing, and have fun doing it". Overall an interesting if not particularly deep read, and it will be interesting to see if the success in printed form mirrors the apparent/ claimed success of the podcast form. Recommended.
