In his new book The Future of Men, Jack Myers looks at where guys have been, where they are now and, of most importance, where they are headed in the years ahead. In the introduction to the book Jack notes that “After being told all their lives to ‘be a man’ and ‘man up,’ men are now rejecting the macho stereotype and instead developing empathy, getting in touch with their emotions and becoming more sensitive in their relationships.” Throughout the book he takes a deep dive into the circumstances that have prompted questions about the male of the species, including “Where have all the real men gone?” “Why is the era of the dominant male ending?” and “Who are the real men of today and the future?” But it’s a comment he included on the dedication page that stayed with me from the first moment I saw it: “There is no male counterpart to sisterhood.”
