Joel Stein's 'Stupid Quest for Masculinity'

Joel Stein was "the kind of kid who grew up with an Easy Bake Oven," so he panicked when he found out that his wife was pregnant with a boy.

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.

On Starting Point this morning, Stein explains the reasoning behind his goal, saying that he thinks that men "have lost a little bit of our self reliance and our confidence" because of technology.
