Masculinity is in crisis. Unlike any time in modern history, males of every age, race, and income level are lost and bewildered, angry and scared.
An honest reckoning is long overdue.
In Better Boys, Better Men, frequent New York Times contributor Andrew Reiner deconstructs this ongoing crisis by examining the profound and profoundly debilitating roles traditional forms of masculinity play in the lives of boys and men today.
As an antidote, he introduces readers to a growing number of males who are paving the way for bold new forms of masculinity. These boys and men are turning their struggles into the sources of courage, inner strength, and resiliency they need in a world vastly different from the ones their fathers and grandfathers grew up in.
An intrepid exploration of masculinity and a much-needed clarion call, Better Boys, Better Men challenges us to redefine what it means to be a man today and will forever change the way we think and talk about masculinity.
