“Craig Wilkinson is on a mission to help men rediscover true masculinity.
He is doing so through Father-a-nation and his new book DAD. I enjoyed this interview for various reasons but mainly because Craig truly has a deep understanding of the issues that face men today. You hear it often that masculinity is in a state of crisis. Men are unsure what they are supposed to be or who they are supposed to be. They are bombarded by expectations set by religion, media and culture. Yet, the true meaning of masculinity might be more simple than you would expect.”
