Waterstones Says

With a characteristic mix of fierce intelligence and withering wit, Richard Herring deconstructs misogyny, toxic masculinity and manxiety by expanding on his blistering retorts to online trolls and embittered keyboard warriors.

'The problem with The Problem with Men is that I do believe men will have less trouble with it than the title suggests as it is actually a glorious, funny book written by a glorious funny man' AISLING BEA

'Very moving, one of the few things I've consumed in 2020 that has left me with a sense of hope... but one thing wasn't made clear, when is International Men's Day?' JOHN ROBINS

For the past decade, Richard Herring has been answering sexist trolls on International Women's Day when they ask 'when is International Men's Day?' in the mistaken belief there isn't one.

If only the trolls had learned to use Google they would realise that there is an International Men's Day - it's on November 19th.

In The Problem with Men Richard expands on his Twitter discussions and tackles some of the big questions surrounding the problems of toxic masculinity - for women, but also for men - including:

- Should men fear feminism?
- Is society sexist against men?
- Could you win a point against Serena Williams?

*spoiler* The answer to all of these is no.

With Richard's signature humour and insight, The Problem with Men is a book for anyone striving for an equal society, all year round.

'This is a great book but I think the last thing it needs is a quote by yet another man' JAMES ACASTER

MEDIA REVIEWS
Rich, you're a brilliant comedian and this is a great book but I think the last thing it needs is a quote by yet another man * James Acaster *
The problem with The Problem with Men is that I do believe men will have less trouble with it than the title suggests as it is actually a glorious, funny book written by a glorious funny man * Aisling Bea *
Very moving, one of the few things I've consumed in 2020 that has left me with a sense of hope... but one thing wasn't made clear, when is International Men's Day? * John Robins *
I loved it. One of the reasons I loved it is because it's not very long and I read it quite quickly. It's very funny, as you'd expect. It's funny, even if you are a slightly defensive and thin-skinned male man, I think you'd enjoy this - it's not designed to wind anyone up, but to help you relax * Adam Buxton *

“The problem with this book is that not enough men will read it”

You've met him and if your being honest you've probably been him- the guy in the office who quips 'when's International men's day - on International women's day'. The easy joke, the... More
