Journalist Phil Barker unpacks the myth of the 'Man Box' and Australian masculinity.

The performance of being a man, from the moment we open our eyes, until we gasp our last breath, is damaging us, and those around us.

Phil Barker has written thousands of words about being a man in these strange and terrible times. As a journalist, he has spent years investigating the modern epidemics of suicide, domestic violence, pornography and misogyny, but also the essential bonds of male friendship, fatherhood and men's relationships with women. During this time, Phil found himself seeing what it is to 'be a man' in a completely new light.

Men are forced into a performance of masculinity that is suffocating, limiting and damaging. The Revolution of Man shows us how to rethink what it means to be a man and urges men to reconnect with their emotions so they, and the people they love, can start leading happier, healthier and more meaningful lives.

Industry Reviews
'Compelling. What does it mean to be a man? Finally, we're talking about it. This book is the conversation we need to have-with each other, our sons and fathers.'
Peter FitzSimons, bestselling author of Kokoda

'A terrific read-gutsy, plain-speaking and personal, addressing almost every aspect of Australian men's lives today . . . This book will greatly help the growing avalanche of masculine change.'
Steve Biddulph, psychologist and bestselling author of Manhood

'Phil Barker skewers toxic masculinity and provides a manifesto for modern manhood. This well-researched, engaging and thought-provoking book explains why positive masculinity is good for men, women and children. We need more male allies like Phil to create a safer future for the post #MeToo generation.'
Tracey Spicer, journalist and bestselling author of The Good Girl Stripped Bare
