For sixteen years Steve Biddulph's ground-breaking Manhood had a remarkable impact around the world. Thousands of men reconciled with their fathers, became closer to their children, improved their marriages or made sweeping changes to their lives. Women loved the book for giving them a deeper understanding of their husbands and sons. Now the original book has been 'rebuilt' from the ground up.
In The New Manhood, Steve Biddulph explores the elements of a man's life that often cause unhappiness, emptiness or frustration. Love, sex, marriage, raising children, friendship, spirituality and finding your true work are amongst many subjects dealt with in an honest and uplifting way. Powerful, real-life stories describe men making changes and freeing their lives. Readers find themselves moved to tears one minute and to laughter the next.
This is a handbook for men of all ages, and for the women who love them.
Steve Biddulph is one of the world’s best known parent educators. A psychologist for 25 years, he is now retired but continues to write and teach.
