Modern Masculinity

In his new book, psychologist Stephan B. Poulter gives men a roadmap out of toxic masculinity and offers a new vision of what it means to be a man.

Men are in crisis. The old model of masculinity is dying. Women are saying “enough” to it and so are many men. Your father’s masculinity—the one that denied him any emotions except anger and too often led to tragic personal, familial, and social outcomes—is rightfully going the way of the dinosaur. But what should replace it and how can men embrace a new, healthy model of masculinity?

“… a fresh and thoughtful take on what it means to be a man today.
