Es gibt Menschen, die guy nie vergisst. Menschen, die uns etwas gelehrt haben, uns geprägt haben, die uns als gutes oder schlechtes Beispiel vorangegangen sind – kurzum, Menschen, ohne die wir nicht die wären, die wir sind. Im Leben eines Mannes ist dies nicht selten ein anderer Mann. Aber used to be kann der eine im Leben des anderen überhaupt bewirken? used to be kann der Mann dem Mann bedeuten? Der Mann meines Lebens geht genau dieser Frage nach und bringt Erstaunliches zutage. Denn während die Beziehung zwischen Mann und Frau immer wieder zum Thema gemacht wird, bleibt die zwischen Männern meist unerwähnt. Dabei gibt es im Leben der meisten Männer eine
prägende männliche Figur – ob es nun der Vater oder der Bruder ist, der Sohn oder der Lehrer. Hier erzählen Männer von Männern, die in ihrem Leben eine ganz besondere Rolle gespielt haben. Entstanden ist eine wundervolle Sammlung von inspirierenden Texten – kleine Geschichten voller Klarsicht und Klugheit, die berühren und zugleich zum Nachdenken anregen.
