The New York Times bestselling author of The Wait and “spiritual teacher for our times” (Oprah Winfrey)—frankly and openly explores why men behave the way they do and what everyone—men and women alike—need to know about it.
We hear it all the time. Men cheat. Men love power. Men love sex. Men are greedy. Men are dogs. But is this really the truth about men?
In this groundbreaking book, DeVon Franklin dishes the real truth by making the compelling case that men aren’t dogs but all men share the same struggle. He provides the manual for how men can change, both on a personal and a societal level by providing practical solutions for helping men learn how to resist temptation, how to practice self-control, and how to love.
But The Truth About Men isn’t just for men. DeVon tells female readers everything they need to know about men. He offers women a real-time understanding of how men’s struggles affect them, insights that can help them navigate their relationships with men and information on how to heal from the damage that some misbehaving men may have inflicted.
This book is a raw, informative, and accessible look at an issue that threatens to tear our society apart yet it offers a positive way forward for men and women alike.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Preacher DeVon Franklin takes a Christian approach to the contentious #MeToo era, with a deep dive into men’s innermost urges. In analyzing what drives men to make decisions that hurt those around them, Franklin subversively plays with the familiar adage “all men are dogs,” recasting lust as the dog that men must learn to train and tame. Franklin delivers his spiritual but plainspoken message with the passion of the pulpit, but his laser focus on the importance of men learning to express their thoughts and feelings—to themselves and those they love—sounds intensely personal.

From a devoted man
All men are not dogs and all men do not cheat on their spouses.
I felt like the title should have been my struggles and journey with women this book was all about his love life and what he has learned. I don’t think he did enough research to really give a broad enough opinions. Also don’t feel it’s fair to classify all men as “dogs” and suppressing the “dog” this book had some fine points but not enough.
The Truth About Men
I’ve only made it to chapter 3, but I find the book to be boring. I’m not sure I will finish it. It reads like I college paper with lots of sources and studies sited. How to train a dog dot dot dot....just not keeping my attention.
