Brothers: Every man needs strong, authentic friendships

None of us have been created to live mediocre lives, so we shouldn’t settle for mediocre friendships.

Why do many male friendships tend to be shallow? Are men supposed to be interested in deep connections with other dudes? Why is it that a three-year-old boy has no issues expressing his love and admiration for his best friend, but a twenty-year-old man most like

Kim's fantastic book is going to continue to challenge many men and women on their idea of mens friendships. He does not hold back with speaking his mind and I have a lot of respect for him for that! He'll make you feel out of your comfort zone and as raw as it felt when reading it, I learnt a lot and feel like I can make more of an effort with my own mates. Watch this man change men's friendships for the chapter at a time

Brothers, the book and organisation, has surfaced at a time when the world is beginning to recognise and acknowledge the very real consequences of toxic masculinity and lack of intimate connection amongst men.

A real friendship is a powerful thing

Kim is man enough to say out loud what many men feel inside, but would never dare to share. For too long, men have been taught that connection is feminine and that men, being strong, don't need deep, authentic relationships with their bros.

Kim brings us along on his journey from loneliness to connection, and provides tips and tricks for building something better with your bros.

I would recommend this book to the working man with a family who feels he has no ti
