Jonathan Andrews' debut book
“Man, you know I got you!” is said between the lines so many times, but we want to rip it from the page and plaster it in Times Square. Man, I have got you. Seriously.
Men’s mental health is in a crisis and being told to “man up” isn’t solving anything. Instead, we’re inspiring a new generation of men to Circle Up. To commit to one another’s mental health, growth and development. To find strength in community, righteousness of truth and courage in vulnerability.
This book will challenge everything you think you know about mental health and get to the core of why men suffer and why they don’t have to.
Together, we can change men’s mental health. It starts right here - Circle Up!
“Jonathan is like a brother. And this conversation about men’s mental health is near and dear to my heart. It’s so important for men to know that they are not alone. I know Jonathan’s work with Project Circle Up and this book will make a positive impact in the way men talk, think, and feel about their mental health and masculinity. This is a must read.”
KURTIS GABRIEL, Canadian Professional Ice Hockey Player for the Toronto Maple Leafs
"Jonathan Andrews’ story is powerful, heartwarming, and inspiring. He is truly a man of purpose who understands how his story can help people across the world. He embodies the title, “Man, You Know I got you” in every way."
AIMÉ MUKENDI JR. AKA "SIR AIMÉZING", International Speaker & Best Selling Author of, “Everyone Needs a Hero: Why Can’t it be you?”
“Man, you know I got you' is a candid, emotional real take on men's mental health. Exploring narratives and hardships men often experience alone while providing a road map to wellness and healthy living we desperately need right now.”
MIKE SHOREMAN, Mental Health Advocate, Award-Winning Speaker, Author and Athlete
“Jonathan is the messenger that this generation of men needs. He has a refreshing, relatable and relevant lens on why it is essential for men to navigate life, in community, rather than isolation. He has the ambition of a 20-something and the wisdom of a 90-something. This book is right on time. We need this message now more than ever.”
BLAKE FLEISCHACKER, 8-Time TEDx Speaker, Author And Creator of Thank U Live
"This book should be required reading for ALL men. Jonathan's powerful and vulnerable storytelling lifted a weight off my spirit and reminded me that I'm never alone in my struggles. This book will pave the way for the future of men's mental health discussions. Reading it was like speaking to a brother who truly loves and cares about you."
SAM DEMMA, Award-Winning Youth Speaker and Entrepreneur
“A great piece of work that provides solidarity around coping with mental health. Men tend to be more of a closed book when discussing these topics but ‘Man, you know I got you’ is a book you must open to feel the presence of an author who understands the world of mental health on an extremely relatable level.”
COLE ROWDEN, CEO of Ethos Ventures
“As an Arab man, I find this text to not only encompass the hard pill our generation of men have had to swallow for decades, but a manual to discovering the strength in opening up to the real issues inside. Jonathan’s art in expression makes him unique and relatable to millions of men across all walks of life, especially for those needing the assurance in knowing their feelings and struggles are valid. I pray that men get to share this text with one another knowing where real strength lies: together.”
ALLY SALAMA, Forbes 30 Under 30, CEO EMPWR, Empathy Always Wins Podcast, Ex-Pro Athlete, and The Middle East’s Mental Health Ambassador
"I first met Andrews in a men’s circle, and knew right away that he’d “felt the change” that community support can create, and I saw it take a whole life internationally when I ran into Andrews in Mexico & Guatemala. While we’ve personally benefited from doing the work, it’s inspiring to see these lessons take new life in the form of an incredible teacher and role model. This book serves as an urgent reminder that you are not alone, and help is out there waiting for you to accept it. Open up, read up, circle up, and level up! Then try to help others do the same.”
