Description: An Emmy Award -- winning actor offers a path toward manhood for young men and a constructive approach for parents who want to open a dialogue with their growing sons.

Growing up fatherless, GregAlan Williams struggled for many years to learn the hard lessons of manhood. Convinced that alcohol, drugs, and the affection of women would make him a man, he lived self -- destructively, caught up in the glamour of Hollywood. Despite a promising career as an actor, Williams realized that he was failing in his most important roles: as a father, as a friend, and as a lover.

"Boys To Men" is the author's moving and honest account of how, by learning to assume responsibility for himself and the people in his life, one man made it to manhood. In its pages, Williams shares his stories of searching to define himself in the face of fear and peer pressure; of resisting violence in the struggle for justice; and of the necessity of "showing up for life". He stresses the importance of following Good Orderly Direction (G.O.D.) and learning to accept the lessons of failure as much as the rewards of success.

His moving narrative will spark memories in the minds of readers that they can use to open a dialogue with their sons or any young man in need of guidance. His critical message cuts across race and class, and his experience and wisdom reinforce the lessons we seek to teach our children every day. An important resource in the struggle to save our sons, "Boys To Men" will help prepare the men of tomorrow for the road they must travel today.
