The lovely ladies on the cover are my sisters. My actual blood sisters. In the photo I may look like a stereotypical “ladies man”because I got beautiful women around me, but how does the image change when you realize they are my sisters? I wrote this book to help men change harmful perspectives about how we see women. We should treat everyone like they are our sisters and our brothers.
