To be a Man Summary

To be a Man: Letters to My Grandson by Charlton Heston

While the public has followed his stellar career, and has heard his clearly articulated arguments on behalf of political and individual causes, Charlton Heston and his wife, Lydia, have quietly raised a son and daughter, striving to imbue in them the same beliefs that they themselves hold so dear. Now, in To Be a Man, Charlton Heston shares these beliefs. Beginning with anecdotal reminiscences about childhood - his own, and that of his son, Fraser, and now his grandson, Jack - and concluding with letters of love and encouragement and wisdom to five-year-old Jack, he addresses those points in life he feels are essential in becoming a man. From his belief in the importance of family, to being brave and determined in whatever one undertakes, to understanding and appreciating one's heritage while remaining open to the huge and hugely diverse world we live in, to love of freedom and support of one's country, to the essentials of being not just a man, but a good man - honesty, integrity, loyalty, appreciation of friendship, and good sportsmanship - Charlton Heston offers words of guidance and sage wisdom that ultimately are applicable not only to Jack, but to all men, everywhere.
