'Excellent' Robert Webb, author of How Not To Be A Boy
'A valuable book for parents' Barbara Ellen, Observer
Why are boys three times more likely than girls to be suspended from school? And four times more likely to have behavioural difficulties? Why do men make up 75% of suicides and 95% of prisoners?
From babyhood through school and adolescence, to work and relationships, fatherhood and old-age, Man Up investigates the unique difficulties boys and men encounter today. Through fascinating research and real-life case studies, this book shows that change is possible and that there is room for men and boys to find greater fulfilment and happiness - to the benefit of everyone.

Man Up provides a warning to all parents. If we don't like what we see out there in the society of grown men ... then we need to tackle seriously the culture at this young age.
