    Why are boys three times more likely than girls to be suspended from school? And four times more likely to have behavioural difficulties? Why do men make up 75% of suicides and 95% of prisoners?

    From babyhood through school and adolescence, to work and relationships, fatherhood and old-age, Man Up investigates the unique difficulties boys and men encounter today. Through fascinating research and real-life case studies, this book shows that change is possible and that there is room for men and boys to find greater fulfilment and happiness – to the benefit of everyone.
