The bestselling author of Raising Boys brings together an eclectic range of stories of men's experiences

By turns powerful, heartbreaking, wise, and funny, these essays and other works of nonfiction break down the narrow stereotypes associated with manhood. contributors include Peter Carey, Bill Bryson, Michael Leunig, Elliot Perlman, Leo Schofield, and Bob Ellis among others. The wide variety of perspectives include an international best-selling author looking back on a loss he ran away from, a widowed father learning to overcome his grief and demonstrate to his sons how to love again, a man caring for his aging father while living on a remote island, a young father having to choose between his sick daughter and the wrath of his boss, and a soldier reflecting on his experiences in East Timor. Written with raw honesty, insight, and humor, these stories reflect the often hidden, emotional depths of men as they face the ups and downs of life.
