Mark Greene is the Senior Editor of The Good Man Project ( He gathers here a few of his essays, in what turned out to be a very short and straightforward read (barely 153 pages!).

His point has been made by others already, but it needs to be nailed: our view that a man should be tough has often been distorted by what we oftentimes really mean by 'tough'. We have indeed been encouraging men, ever since they have been children, to blunt their emotions, a toxic process wh

An excellent book! It has a bunch of articles by various people who are involved in the "Good men project".

Except for a few articles which were triggering for me, I found the rest of them to be a fresh perspective on the whole idea of masculinity and what is limited in our current ideas about it. I went through a few chapters and would love to pick up this book again after a while.

This book attempts to define masculinity in a more positive, healthier way that is beneficial to society and to men

Mark Greene is a man of many words, each chosen carefully for maximum impact. His new book, Remaking Manhood, is a collection of his essays published on The Good Men Project, and while each chapter stands alone, together they constitute a strong voice for men and an even stronger call to break the Man Box and remake masculinity into a force that constructively supports the lives of both men and women. Greene recounts and draws wisdom from the chapters of his life—from his early boyhood to becomi ...more

While I'm not sure I'd qualify these conversations and social processes as a movement, Greene has some insightful and useful things to say. I don't agree with all of them but that very fact might make this a more gentle on-ramp for men not trained as feminists.
And men talking about emotional intimacy, inner suffering, parenting, and joy... I vote yes.

While it was good, it definitely fails to consider socio-political dimensions such as being a Man of Color, queer or disabled. These are dimensions that can't really be excluded while talking about concepts such as masculinity. While he has some good takes, some points veer a bit too close to the uncomfortable realm of victim/woman blaming.

Still a good book overall

This is the first 'compassionate' book about toxic masculinity that I have read, and as a beginner to this area of thinking I found it accessible, informative and leaving me wanting to learn more. Some of Greene's particularly interesting perspectives were those about the intractable relationship between masculinity studies and feminism, men with (and as) babies, and male friendships - all presented in well-written narrative against the backdrop of his own experiences as a man-person.

“Please, choose to be a traditional American man if that is how you want to perform masculinity, that's fine. But it’s not the only way to be a man. There are many ways. Too many to count. And in the moment you ditch the part of the Man Box that says everyone has to be like you, you free all of us. Men, women and children. And you free yourself.” 2 likes
