Recommended to Kathy by: Goodness, I've forgotten how I came across this one
Recommended for: Intellectual/academic types interested in gender issues

Loooong book taking an in-depth look at what it means to be male in America. Susan explores the huge Promise Keepers movement, the decline of industry, why men identify so strongly and are so loyal to sports organization and the impact on men when these organizations sell-out and move to other cities. She looks at gender relations and examines the shifts in roles and division of responsibilities and adresses domestic violence. She does all of this objectively and with and understanding of the unique challenges facing modern man. An interesting, but rather academic read.
