A guide for men on how to overcome emotional obstacles while forging happiness, freedom, and true male strength explains how to identify and understand feelings while handling socialized predispositions toward negative emotional behaviors. Reprint. 30,000 first printing.


For men — and
the women who love them —
a guide to transformation
and true power

The world needs your light. The world needs your life.
Every woman and child needs you also.

Few men are taught the true spiritual essence of masculinity. In Up from Here Iyanla Vanzant empowers men with the insight and skills they need to identify, name, and understand their feelings, as well as to overcome the old patterns of behavior that result from misusing or not tapping into their emotional strength. In clear terms Vanzant shows men how to use the energy of emotions to move beyond painful, negative feelings such as rage, shame, fear, and anger to authenticity and strength.

Like the phoenix, you can rise up from here,
out of the ashes of the crash and burn of the past,
to claim your true identity and power.

By using Vanzant's "power tools" men can transform their frustrations and failures in love, life, and work into opportunities to claim their true potential and purpose.
