CARL BEECH leads a men's movement, Christian Vision for Men. His little books of "Bible notes for men", following a 60-day undated format, and co-written with others, seek to take a "non-nonsense" approach and to speak in the language of "the average bloke". The Manual: Book 1: Power/poker/pleasure/pork pies (CWR, 978-1-85345-769-2) is co-written with Andy Frost and "MAF pilot Brian"; and The Manual: Book 2: Fighters/keepers/losers/reapers (CWR, 978-1-85345-770-8) with Roy Crowne and "Carl's mate Alex". They cost £4.99 (£4.50) each.
