I picked this book because I thought it will highlight few of the sufferings of males who stand at crossroads; where musculanity is not worshiped as was in time of wars and blunted men are promoted in modern systems.
.

.

.
First of all it says few areas where males are more prone like suicide, heart disease, prisons, violence, falling musculanity, feeding disorders etc but it accepts males have been tbe dominant population throughout.
.

.

CEO of big corporations and self made billionaires are mainly men and nobel prizes are dominated by top male population but rest of male mass is busy making ends meet in captive jobs.
.

.
. Book is funny, witty, too open with frequent use of adult words and contexts.
.

.
It discusses how unexpressed testosterone leads to maladjustment leading to violence, mass shootings, divorce, rash driving and PTSD in males.
.

.

Book asserts that monogamy and religion help to live happier and fulfilling life and how today is the golden era of fatherhood. Author gives examples from research and his own life. Notably he is unmarried and struggles to understand situation of all married men.
.
.

.
Writing is deliberately made witty and humorous but underlying seriousness of message is maintained.
.

.
Book becomes a bit slow at junctures but overall it can be read very fast and every male should read it, although due to lots of discussion about sex; readers discretion is advised. There is a whole chapter on porn industry.
.
.
.

.
It is manifesto of how modern man is faring and does not brag at any point that males are on suffering side. They just face a different sort off challenge; which is channelization of their musculanity into meaningful direction.
.

.

I picked it up to see somebody supportive of male mass of the planet, but this book is not about suffering of men but about changing times.

.

Thanks edelweiss plus and publisher for review copy.
