The Good Men Project - Men's Narrative for Today
The Good Men Project
The Good Men Project is about capturing the modern male narrative. It is about giving men an opportunity to talk candidly about themselves and take ownership of the everyday heroism and everyday failures that men in the 21st century experience. Right now there is a book, a DVD and a growing social network through the Good Men Project website. Within a couple of years, the project hopes to have a number of additional books, movies and TV programs developed or in the works. These stories come from soldiers and immigrants, ex-convicts and photo-journalists, fortune 500 executives, musicians and single dads.
Tom Matlack is the founder of the Good Men Project. He grew up very close to where the New England ManKind Project community was born, in a western Massachusetts town called Shutesbury. He doesn't talk a lot about it, but he has a deep understanding of the early men's movement, as seen through the eyes of a kid living in the mytho-poetic heart of the northeast United States. He's come a long way since then. Today his 6th floor corner office looks out on the high end shops and restaurants of downtown Boston's Newbury Street. His choices led him here, sometimes consciously and sometimes by accident. He's dedicated the last two years of his life to exploring and creating a 21st century dialogue about men and masculinity.
Matlack is passionate about getting the word out - and fostering dialogue about what it means to be a man in today's world. We're with you, Tom.
The Good Men Project book is an excellent way to open the door to a greater possibility of male connection through truth-telling. This book is not Chicken Soup, it's stew. It's not stories tied in a neat bow with some words of wisdom. These are men's stories; complex, sometimes painful, full of heart.
