Review by Aula
I enjoyed this immensely: Biddulph's writing is clear and easy to read, humourous at the right times and sensitive and non-judgemental throughout. He goes through the various phases of male life - both physical and social - like childhood, adolesence, marriage, sex, etc. He makes it clear how much men suffer under traditional 'patriarchy' (not at the expense of women's suffering, mind you), and how much of that goes on unbeknownst to both men and women. I would recommend this book to both men and women who have a desire to understand themselves and their friends/partners/etc. better.
