The brilliant, personal, not-actually-sexist writing by millennials
about masculinity and politics that the world has been waiting for
* Laurie Penny *
Jack Urwin writes like he speaks: accessible, funny and interesting. His Vice article got people talking and now, almost two years on, he is right in thinking that the time for a big discussion about masculinity has arrived. * Telegraph *
Makes a powerful argument for greater emotional honesty. Urwin's own battle with depression adds heft to an engaging and moving call to arms * Daily Express *
Urwin wants to show us that the classic palette of masculine emotions- the fear of looking weak or small, the urge to compete, the need to win- are not a response to reality, but a throwback to a world that no longer exists. * Financial Times *
