Summary In his first book, Ross Matthews tells listeners what it means to 'man up'--to realize, no matter how hard you may hope against hope, you are what you are. Admittedly still a work-in-progress, Ross recounts how he's benefited from this frame of mind his whole life. From growing up as an atypical kid in a small Northwestern farm town to living as an atypical adult in Los Angeles, to eventually being his loud, proud, unapologetically genuine self on national television.
