"Engaging...provocative....The book raises important questions....A useful, highly readable overview of an important social phenomenon."--Kirkus Reviews "[A] deft exploration grounded in research....Kimmel offers a highly practical guide to male youth."--Publishers Weekly "Guyland takes up where Real Boys left off...a must-read for parents, teachers, coaches, young women who are so confused by the guys in their midst-and for guys themselves who yearn to break free of unwritten rules that leave them half a man, rather than a whole person."--William Pollack, author of Real Boys "Every parent who is about to write a check for college tuition should read this book first and discuss it with his or her son...and daughter."--Michael G. Thompson, Ph.D., co-author of Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys Kimmel calls on us all to see the boy in the pseudo-man, to break the silence with which we surround them, and do what it takes to help them grow into real men."--Arlie Hochschild, author of The Second Shift, The Time Bind, and The Commercialization of Intimate Life "For anyone who has ever longed to know what's really going on in a young man's life, rejoice: Guyland is a compassionate, unflinching dispatch from deep in the heart of young masculinity. Required reading for people who raise, teach, and love guys."--Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls "An absolute bombshell of a book. A disturbing, but mandatory wake-up call for all of us who are boys, love boys or raise boys."--Madeline Levine, Ph.D., author of The Price of Privilege: How Parental Pressure and Material Advantage are Creating a Generation of Disconnected and Unhappy Kids "Just as Reviving Ophelia introduced readers to the culture of teenage girls, Guyland takes us to the land of young men."--Mary Pipher, Ph.D., author of Reviving Ophelia "Michael Kimmel's Guyland could save the humanity of many young men--and the sanity of their friends and parents--by explaining the forces behind a newly extended adolesence. With accuracy and empathy, he names the problem and offers compassionate bridges to adulthood."--Gloria Steinem
