An international TED Talk speaker, Tony Porter challenges manhood and male socialization, which he defines as the “man box.” Tony Porter works closely with the NFL, the NBA, the MLB, the US military, colleges, universities, and numerous other organizations to prevent violence against women and girls by promoting healthy, respectful manhood. Now, in Breaking Out of the “Man Box” Porter’s message is directed at all men. This book tackles the collective socialization of manhood and provides an in-depth look at the experiences of boys and men. In an effort to understand the many aspects of “what it means to be a man,” Porter suggests the topic is worthy of being rethought, challenged, and even redefined. This book will help men—fathers, husbands, brothers, coworkers, etc.—unpack and correct those realities. Breaking Out of the “Man Box” boldly exposes the connection between male socialization and the quest to end violence against women and girls. Porter provides an honest and transformative experience, empowering men to create a world where men and boys are loving and respectful—and a human race where women and girls are valued and safe. On the heels of national movements and initiatives such as the NFL’s NoMore.org, this book provides men with the knowledge and understanding to explore how to create that world.

A breakthrough plan for males to re-enter the world of men. What happens when a boy grows physically into an adult male but misses some of the experiences and relationships that help form complete manhood? Alan Medinger writes for such men and for those who care about them. Within the context of his own release from homosexuality and his growth into “confident and comfortable” manhood, Medinger offers hope to others. For homosexually oriented men, such growth is an essential but often overlooked step in the process of healing. This ground-breaking study could well change many lives.

VOICE MALE: The Untold Story of the Profeminist Men’s Movement takes you inside one of the most important social justice movements you may never have heard of—the social transformation of masculinity. Although it’s been underway since the late 1970s, it still largely remains under the radar of much of society. Thematically arranged essays by leading experts and moving first-person stories illustrate how a growing movement of changing men has discovered in feminism the basis for redefining masculinity and creating healthier lives. The longtime editor of Voice Male magazine, Rob Okun, introduces readers to men examining contemporary manhood from a variety of perspectives—from boys on the journey to manhood to men overcoming violence; from fatherhood and mentoring to navigating life as a man of color; as a gay man, and as a survivor. The voices of a chorus of women can also be heard in these pages. Long recognized for articulating a hopeful vision of the future of men, Okun sensitively presents a vivid portrait sure to be accessible to a wide audience interested in what is happening with men. His many years as a gender justice activist have not just deepened his skill as a chronicler of the profeminist men’s movement but also helped to strengthen his voice as a spokesperson articulating men’s second act. Voice Male offers compelling evidence of a new direction for men and illuminates what’s around the bend on the path to gender justice.

Somewhere along the way, our culture lost its definition of manhood, leaving generations of men and men-to-be confused about their roles, responsibilities, relationships, and the reason God made them men. It's into this "no man's land" that New York Times bestselling author Mark Batterson declares his mantra for manhood: play the man. In this inspiring call to something greater, he helps men understand what it means to be a man of God by unveiling seven virtues of manhood. Mark shares inspiring stories of manhood, including the true story of the hero and martyr Polycarp, who first heard the voice from heaven say, "Play the man." Mark couples those stories with practical ideas about how to disciple the next generation of men. This is more than a book; it's a movement of men who will settle for nothing less than fulfilling their highest calling to be the man and the father God has destined them to be. Play the man. Make the man.

Modern Masculinity seeks to help men of all ages build a strong masculine identity. We have all heard about the sorry state of modern men and the “crisis” in masculinity. This isn’t a book about how we got here. It’s a book about where we go next. This book describes the basic elements of modern masculine life. It explains how we can get respect for masculinity in a culture that constantly devalues it. It also outlines ways in which you can have productive conversations in which you and other men are treated with respect. Part I assesses the state of modern masculinity and outlines three steps to help you develop confidence in yourself as masculine men, including experimenting with various martial arts. Part II is about walking the walk. These chapters outline short-term and long-term strategies, including rites of passage, that will remind you of your masculine identity and help you make it stronger. Part III is about talking the talk. These chapters suggest ways in which you can shape and guide discussions that build masculine identity and promote respect for men, bringing positive ideas about manhood forward. Part IV takes the form of a Q & A. These chapters relate masculinity to traditions and trends, asking questions you might have about modern masculinity and questions you might be asked. Topics include patriotism, patriarchy, civil rights, and others. Part V includes a summary, acknowledgments, and references to a wide range of posts, articles, and books about modern masculinity and men in today’s world. Modern masculinity is a big topic, and this is a short book. It has been designed as a guide, not a comprehensive account. It provides handy references to a wide range of recent posts, articles, and books about men and feminism. Modern Masculinity aims to help you stand up for men in the modern world by standing up for yourself.

American author and philosopher Henry David Thoreau wrote, The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. God placed with you the strength to make you come alive. The world needs your contribution something no one else can offer. That might be expressed in a song or a poem. Maybe you ll produce the world s next architectural marvel. Perhaps your gift to the world will be a medical breakthrough or a new discovery. Whatever it is, people everywhere deserve to receive what God has equipped you to deliver. And it will make you come alive too! Settling for anything less is common living. But you are an uncommon guy and on adventure with God. Refuse a life of quiet desperation. Do the challenging things to build your character and strength. Take the journey to discover your life task and offer it to the world. Your impact will be felt for eternity.

What does it mean to be male in the 21st Century? Award-winning artist Grayson Perry explores what masculinity is: from sex to power, from fashion to career prospects, and what it could become—with illustrations throughout. In this witty and necessary new book, artist Grayson Perry trains his keen eye on the world of men to ask, what sort of man would make the world a better place? What would happen if we rethought the macho, outdated version of manhood, and embraced a different ideal? In the current atmosphere of bullying, intolerance and misogyny, demonstrated in the recent Trump versus Clinton presidential campaign, The Descent of Man is a timely and essential addition to current conversations around gender. Apart from gaining vast new wardrobe options, the real benefit might be that a newly fitted masculinity will allow men to have better relationships—and that’s happiness, right? Grayson Perry admits he’s not immune from the stereotypes himself—yet his thoughts on everything from power to physical appearance, from emotions to a brand new Manifesto for Men, are shot through with honesty, tenderness, and the belief that, for everyone to benefit, updating masculinity has to be something men decide to do themselves. They have nothing to lose but their hang-ups.
