Are good men really so hard to find?

The Good Men Project, comprised of a book, documentary, and website, begins to heal a gaping wound in the fabric of society.

The concept was to create "a platform where men can tell their stories: stories men can relate to, and examples of what they can follow," according to Good Men Project cofounder, Tom Matlack. He notes that, "we don't have the answer," but that his project is intended to promote the discussion.

"This all started with the idea that men of our generation have stories to tell," notes cofounder James Houghton. "And what is striking about the stories in the book--from the one about the former drug lord--turned--prison-reformer, to the soldier home from Iraq and facing the death of his young daughter, to the guy who has to face the reality of his son's autism--is not just the breadth of experience and shared humanity that is expressed, but also the desire for so many men to talk, given our cultural bias to put on the good face and hold it all together."
