Amazing Men: Courage, Insight, Endurance
by Joyce Tenneson
Publisher's Description
Following her successful Wise Women, acclaimed photographer Joyce Tenneson shows a new vision of masculinity and aging today in this book of powerful portraits, which includes many celebrity subjects. The much-anticipated follow-up to Joyce Tenneson's hugely successful Wise Women, AMAZING MEN presents portraits of a wide cross-section of men aged 60 and over, from varying professions, lifestyles, and geographic locations. Many are well-known figures—Tom Brokaw, Bill Cosby, Robert DeNiro, Ben Kingsley, B.B. King, and Joe Torre among them—and many others are unsung heroes of the heart, men whose insights and experiences transcend the traditional male stereotypes to reveal sensitivity and wisdom, inner power and humility. Last year's Wise Women was the subject of a six-part Today show special, was serialized in both O: The Oprah Magazine and Modern Maturity, and became a cultural phenomenon. AMAZING MEN is certain to generate the same kind of debate and critical attention and will also be an ideal Father's Day gift. Quotations from the amazing men accompany their portraits, offering a wide range of reflections and revelations about the masculine image today.
