Humankind is at the tipping point in its greatest-ever revolution – a revolution in gender relationships, gender identities and gender power. Women are confidently on the rise while men and their behaviours are under scrutiny like never before. At the core of this historic shift lies ‘toxic masculinity’. You’ll have heard the term, but do you know what it means? Where does TM come from? Who has it? How does one catch the TM virus? What does it look like? What does it mean for women, love and relationships? Is it the only masculinity out there? And, most importantly, how can we get rid of it?

This fascinating, insightful and engaging book provides all the answers while exploring the most pressing issue of the 21st century. Informed by the author’s 30 years of research into men and masculinities and the latest global studies, this book is the definitive examination of modern man and a must read for anyone concerned with the future of men, gender and sexual relationships.

The most honest and sane book ever written on love, sex and relationships. A manifesto for the 21st century, aimed at helping people overcome guilt and regret and find true contentment as they embark on their unique love journey. Based on extensive research and including vignettes from around the world, The Relationship Manifesto provides detailed descriptions of the different types of love; lists the relationship vows guaranteed to make a marriage work; explains why sex is not always about love; and examines what true togetherness really means. A remarkable and insightful read, designed not to fuel myths of Happy Ever After, but explain the different types of relationships that might work for you.
An absolutely essential read for anyone in or out of love.
