Being a Man: Books About Health, Masculinity, Boyhood, and General Well-Being

Posted on November 8, 2022

Be a man. Man up. Stop acting like a girl. Boys don’t cry. These are loaded phrases, and if you’re a man, they’ve probably been said to you at one point in your life. They are phrases rooted in the stereotypes of masculinity and a prescribed notion that men must be absurdly stoic and unfeeling.

These books aim to help undo those stereotypes and set forth a new path, where all men can be fully human.
