You've also no-doubt been asked to contribute to the crowd-funding of my new book The Future of Men, and if you haven't already, please support it today! As witnessed by the recent cover article in The Economist, the issue of men's changing role in society, business, culture, relationships, marketing and media is emerging as this decade's major challenge. I'm proud to follow up the success of Hooked Up Generation and my early recognition of Millennials as an important and multi-faceted audience with The Future of Men: Masculinity in the Twenty-First Century.The book and related content available at MediaVillage personify the unique and exclusive diversity of trend identification and marketing guidance MyersBizNet delivers to our members. The Future of Men video series featuring YouTube celebrity Jacqui Rossi, a 25-year old Harvard grad and comedian, is already going viral and the book will change your view of the women's rights movement and the narrative we teach our young men as they enter their adult years. It shares radical ideas on the future of advertising and media as marketers recognize an important and growing new male consumer hierarchy.
MediaVillage and all our work at MyersBizNet is dedicated to supporting the needs, interests and revenue-generating priorities of our member companies.
