Joel Stein's 'Stupid Quest for Masculinity'
Once he found out the sex of his baby, Stein embarked on a mission to become manlier, which he details in his new book “Man Made: A Stupid Quest for Masculinity.”
As a part of his "macho" journey, Stein went on a series of “manventures” that included joining the Boy Scouts and fighting wrestler Randy Couture.
