About the Author

Rebecca Asher has worked in television news and current affairs and as the Deputy Editor of Woman's Hour and an Executive Producer at BBC Radio 4. Her first book was Shattered- Modern Motherhood and the Illusion of Equality. Her experiences as a mother of both a boy and a girl inspired her to write this book.


"Interesting...vivid...a valuable book for parents. Man Up employs meticulous research to examine how boys and men are faring today... Strive[s] to illuminate - shining torches out into the modern world." -- Barbara Ellen * Observer *
"Timely and necessary ... populated by thoughtful interviewees, many of whom are trying to change things" * Independent *
"A powerful, thought-provoking call to arms" * The Economist *
"Man Up provides a warning to all parents. If we don't like what we see out there in the society of grown men ... then we need to tackle seriously the culture at this young age. One of Asher's biggest messages is that we need to show more "love, compassion and understanding for boys"" * Sunday Herald *
"Asher...has done a great deal of research...and writes with exemplary clarity, even-handedness and sympathy." -- Lewis Jones * Daily Telegraph *
"Fascinating and rather brilliant." * Dadblog *
