The Mask of Masculinity


About The Mask of Masculinity


The Mask of Masculinity is the 14th book from Dr. Eddie Connor, founder of He is a Best-Selling Author, College Professor, and International Speaker. 

What does it mean to be a man? How do we define manhood and masculinity? These are just some of the questions that I have always wondered about from boyhood to manhood.

Faced with the dilemma of growing up without my father and being diagnosed with stage four cancer, I journeyed on a path from heartbreak to healing and bitterness to forgiveness. Through self-development and emotional healing, I transformed my trauma into a testimony.

In The Mask of Masculinity, I empower and equip you with transparent truths by showing you how to find freedom from trauma, develop your emotional intelligence, mental well-being, communicate more effectively, redefine masculinity, and discover victory spiritually.

Masculinity has always been a mask because it causes us to hide what we must heal from inside. Each chapter will empower you to find freedom from psychological pain and emotional incarceration. The Mask of Masculinity unveils how men can reclaim their identity, lead, and love with vulnerability.
