A thought-provoking book on the crisis of masculinity in today's world. With profound socio-economic changes pushing many guys back in life, the author offers innovative and practical solutions to bridge the gap. A must-read for anyone interested in gender equality and helping boys and men become their best selves.
.@RichardvReeves book, Of Boys And Men, should generate much discussion among those trying to understand what ails America. I will think differently and in less narrow economic ways because of what his book taught me. – source

Us vs. Them is an eye-opening book that warns of the next wave of global populism, one that hits emerging nations before they have fully emerged. The author, Ian Bremmer, explores the rising global frustration with governments that aren't capable of providing security and prosperity. As in Europe and America, citizens want protection and are becoming increasingly frustrated with their ruling parties. The book warns about the dangers of building walls, both digital and physical, to protect insiders from outsiders, and the state from its people. This book is a dire warning about what lies ahead and offers insight into what we can do about it.
.@ianbremmer’s new book #UsVsThem is best book yet on the waves @realDonaldTrump rode to power. @ianbremmer is right that rage and scorn are not plans. He provides good practical ideas for what can be done. – source
