Helpful Books


The books noted below focus upon men and men’s issues.   Most of them are written by men.   Over time this list will be added to, however it is intentionally limited and in that sense “incomplete”.    It is hoped that the books listed will be helpful to others in understanding men’s issues related to the focus of A Men’s Project.   (Note:  the inclusion of books in this list does not mean that the author’s perspective in entirely “endorsed”,  but rather that significant insights are shown in the writing.)

Many women have written a lot that is very helpful for men!   Bell Hooks has written some incredible books.   A lot of other women have written much more that has been helpful for many of us.
