The New Manhood - Steve Biddulph

From Steve Bidduplh: I am very happy to announce the publication of ‘The New Manhood’ - a complete replacement for the book Manhood (which I wrote 20 years ago). Its a much deeper book, and is full of new stories, perspectives, and challenges to men to “stand at their full height”. It aims to be a life guide for men, as well as for women wanting to understand men better, and for parents wanting to help their sons into adulthood. The best things about the old book are there, but 80% of it is new, with new material on love, family, work, sexuality, friendship and parenthood. The core message is about shifting from being a “boy-in-a-man’s body” to being an authentic fully alive man. More purposeful, more loving, and acting for the common good.


The Good Men Project (USA)

The Good Men Foundation is another solid organization taking on what appears to be THE question for the times, What does it mean to be a good man in today's world? Their DVD takes up the very personal stories of 10 real men and the book contains, thirty-one essays by a broad range of men—rich, poor, black, white, gay, straight, urban, rural, famous, ordinary—all writing about the challenges, obstacles, triumphs, failures, and defining moments they encounter. It's not often that the world at large gets an in-depth look at the intimate details of what makes a man, or group of men, tic. That's why their campaign is titled, The Good Men Project: Real Stories From the Front Lines of Modern Manhood. Collectively, the stories shared by these men are meant to help us define what it means to be a good man.
