'Jack Urwin writes like he speaks: accessible, funny and interesting. His Vice article got people talking and now, almost two years on, he is right in thinking that the time for a big discussion about masculinity has arrived.' Telegraph

WHAT DOES MASCULINITY ADD UP TO IN THE 21ST CENTURY?

Jack Urwin traces modern ideas of masculinity from the inability of older generations to deal with the horrors of war, to the mob mentality of football terraces or Fight Club and the disturbing rise of mental health problems among men - especially young men - today.

While we struggle with the idea that there is a single version of masculinity worth aspiring to, depression and suicide among men have reached unprecedented levels. Man Up looks at the challenges and pressures on men today, and suggests ways to survive.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The brilliant, personal, not-actually-sexist writing by millennials about masculinity and politics that the world has been waiting for' * Laurie Penny *
'Jack Urwin writes like he speaks: accessible, funny and interesting. His Vice article got people talking and now, almost two years on, he is right in thinking that the time for a big discussion about masculinity has arrived.' * Telegraph *
'Makes a powerful argument for greater emotional honesty. Urwin's own battle with depression adds heft to an engaging and moving call to arms' * Daily Express *
'Urwin wants to show us that the classic palette of masculine emotions- the fear of looking weak or small, the urge to compete, the need to win- are not a response to reality, but a throwback to a world that no longer exists.' * Financial Times *
