By turns powerful, heartbreaking, wise, and funny, these essays and other works of nonfiction break down the narrow stereotypes associated with manhood. Featured is writing from Peter Carey, Bill Bryson, Scott Adams, Nancy Lerner, Mohammed Khadra, Val Maslen, Simon Carr, J. J. Bell, David Quammen, and Alden Nowlan, among others. The wide variety of perspectives include Dilbert's view on why men really don't rule the world, a widowed father learning to show his love to his sons, a teacher explaining why she loves teaching boys, a man describing his abuse in a church school, a son nursing his father on an isolated island, and Bill Bryson expressing his anger about sports.

Steve Biddulph is the author of Raising Boys, The Secret of Happy Children, Love, Laughter and Parenting, and The Secret Life of Men.

Review:

"Biddulph . . . presents here an often-brilliant gathering of writing on the exposed male self . . . There is Leo Schofield’s fine piece on his at-times Christian Brothers schooling, Peter Carey’s masterful tale of an abortion and fatherhood . . . and Bob Ellis’s utterly heartbreaking story of his mother’s passing. There is some great writing here for everyone." —Matt Condon, author, The Pillow Fight and Three Crooked Kings
