Summary "If ever there was an urgent need for a frank understanding of what's going on with men, it is now. Male rage and frustration have driven resurgent populism, mass shootings, and epidemics of addiction and violence. Powerful men who have abused their positions for decades have been and are being #MeToo--outed and dismissed. The partriachy, that solid bedrock of male power for thousands of years, seems to be crumbling. In Future Man, with his characteristic wit and insight, Tim Samuels assesses the state of comtemporary manhood, its conflicts confusions, and challenges. Trapped in bodies barely changed since cavemen days, men are contending with the stresses of corporate culture, life-long commitment, rampant depression, and crazy expectations to be successful at work and at home. But how can you hunt and gather in an open-lan office? Whyd o men make up up to 95 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs yet 93 percent of te prison population? Why do men commit suicide at more than three times the rate of women? Drawing on his own experience and reporting, Samuels addresses such topics as dating, aging, fatherhood, porn, violence, mental health, and the challenges of monogamy as well as issues related to toxic masculinity, the man box, gender roles, and role models. The American edition has been updated and includes a new preface."--Provided by Publisher.
