Description:
What maleness should mean now, from the author of Vice's 'A Stiff Upper Lip is Killing British Men'.

Jack Urwin's father died when he was 10. No one around him ever sat him down to talk him through his grief. In his later teens he suffered a breakdown.

Now 23 and a journalist whose recent Vice article 'A Stiff Upper Lip is Killing British Men' - described as 'fabulous' by Irvine Welsh - became a viral sensation, Urwin explores what it means to be a man now. He traces crises of masculinity from our grandfathers' inability to deal with the horrors of war, to the mob mentality of football terraces or Fight Club, and the disturbing rise of mental health problems among men today.

Smart, funny and friendly, but with a wisdom that belies the author's age, Man Up is the start of an essential conversation for men, exploring why we have perpetuated the myth of masculinity - and how we can challenge it, and change it.
