This book offers accurate and practical information on many of the common physical and emotional problems that men will experience in their lives. It is a valuable volume for all – not just for men themselves, but for the families who care about them, and the professionals who work with them. It deserves to be on a bookshelf in every office, clinic and home in Australia, to further our understanding of the health risks for men, and more importantly, what to do about them.

Down-to-earth, insightful, easy-to-read, and engaging... glance through a few topics, or read several at a time. Ashfield’s writing is compelling – and gets straight to the point. Men’s mental and emotional well-being is emerging as one of the key issues to be addressed in the coming few decades. This collation of articles provides accurate information relating to men’s physical and mental health, relationship issues and fatherhood. Ashfield describes what it means to be a real man. This is valuable reading for both men and women. If you’ve got a concern, check it out!

At last, bite sized accessible information regarding men’s health. A great point of departure for men, who often find the health arena overwhelming and conflictual. To the point, with key core facts and direction for further details and referral, thus providing a very useful bridging function. Somewhat predictably, I had to pull it out of my wife’s grasp!
