Synopsis:

The Book of Testosterone is a treasure trove of humorous, thought-provoking quotes, euphemisms, clichés, and opinions useful in shaping real men. Some are well-known, others have been handed down by unknown men from the past. Dont miss this timeless wisdom from the hearts and minds of testosterone-driven men, the perfect gift for women to give their guys and for guys to give themselves.

Synopsis:

Attitude

Testosterone is, above all, an attitude—one that will bolster the outcome of just about everything you do. When you start with enthusiasm, confidence, or willingness and desire—versus their alternatives—better results are inevitable. With a testosterone attitude, successes become more common and significant. A little attitude adjustment helps to overcome inadequacies and hurdles.

A positive attitude multiplies the quality of everything—your effort, determination, intensity, calmness, insight, focus, input, output, spirit, and sanity. Testosterone influences your level of success. Better yet, testosterone can make all the difference youll need.

It is far better to be a participant than a spectator.
