The story of Oliver Wilson’s life is an incredible one — overcoming an upbringing scarred by poverty and abuse, he became a professional boxer, Hollywood stuntman and a bodyguard for Led Zeppelin.
But what he’s most proud of is the deep bond he has with his own children – a connection he never had with his own alcoholic father.
Oliver’s is just one of the amazing and inspiring stories by and about men that insideMAN has published over the past year and that we’re soon to turn into a real-life, hard copy book.
On Monday we’re launching a crowdfunder campaign to raise £2500 to cover the publication costs.
Once it’s live you’ll be able to support the project by pre-ordering copies of the book as a paperback, hardback or eBook, and by sharing the crowdfunder link to anyone who knows a man or a boy.
In the meantime, it would be amazing if you can support us by:
- Adding your email to the sign up form to the right
- Telling us what you think in a comment or a tweet using #insideMANbook
- Following us on Twitter @insideMANmagand Facebook
