A year ago, award-winning journalist Dan Bell and leading expert on men’s issues Glen Poole set up insideMAN, an online magazine dedicated to pioneering a new kind of conversation about men and boys. The magazine was inspired by the fact that in the many years both had spent thinking, writing and talking about men's issues, the mainstream cultural conversation about gender had pretty much stuck to a single simplistic and inaccurate narrative: Women have problems, Men are problems. But the truth is far less black and white. From educational underachievement and fatherlessness, to homelessness and suicide, there are many grave inequalities that hit men and boys hardest. Dan and Glen realised that if we’re serious about improving the lives of men and boys, first we have to change the conversation we have about them. This book is a step in that direction. insideMAN combines powerful first-person stories from everyday men on the street, with insightful writing from some of highest-profile journalists currently addressing men’s issues in the UK, including Martin Daubney, of Telegraph Men and former editor of Loaded; Guardian regular Ally Fogg; Tim Samuels from BBC Men’s Hour; Neil Lyndon, author of Sexual Impolitics and the seminal No More Sex War; and the man who coined the term “metrosexual” himself, the brilliant Mark Simpson. The book encompasses everything from a poignant insight into a fathers' experience of miscarriage, to an irreverent celebration of male-objectification, as well as fascinating explorations of subjects most of us simply take for granted – for example, why do men wear trousers anyway? The book also includes practical advice from leading advocates on the best ways to raise awareness of the issues faced by men and boys. If you’re interested in the issues and experiences that effect half of the population, this book is for you.

If you want to play the Game, you've got to know the Rules.

In his international bestseller The Game, Neil Strauss delved into the secret world of pick-up artists—men who have created a science out of the art of seduction. Not only did he reveal the techniques that they had developed, but he became a master of The Game, and the world's No. 1 PUA, as Style.

Now, in this bestselling companion, Strauss reduces three books of life-changing knowledge into a single-volume set. The first book, The Stylelife Challenge, breaks down the knowledge he learned and techniques he invented into simple step-by-step instructions that anyone can follow to meet and land the women of their dreams.

In the second book, Strauss takes readers into the dark side of The Game. The Style Diaries offers a series of tales of seduction and sexual (mis)adventure. From accidentally getting married during a drunken night in Reykjavik, to luring a famous musician's granddaughter into a threesome; to the stress and frustration of the torturous and highly unorthodox "30 Day Sex Experiment," The Style Diaries takes you further into the seduction underworld than ever before. Finally, in the all-new, updated third volume, Strauss collects the greatest, most powerful, field-tested, word-for-word routines.

You don't need money, looks, or fame to succeed with women. All you need is an understanding of how attraction works—and this thirty-day workout program for your social skills, which has already guided countless men from frustration to fulfillment.

Gonzo journalist and literary roustabout Hunter S. Thompson flies with the angels—Hell’s Angels, that is—in this short work of nonfiction.
 
“California, Labor Day weekend . . . early, with ocean fog still in the streets, outlaw motorcyclists wearing chains, shades and greasy Levis roll out from damp garages, all-night diners and cast-off one-night pads in Frisco, Hollywood, Berdoo and East Oakland, heading for the Monterey peninsula, north of Big Sur. . . The Menace is loose again.”
 
Thus begins Hunter S. Thompson’s vivid account of his experiences with California’s most notorious motorcycle gang, the Hell’s Angels. In the mid-1960s, Thompson spent almost two years living with the controversial Angels, cycling up and down the coast, reveling in the anarchic spirit of their clan, and, as befits their name, raising hell. His book successfully captures a singular moment in American history, when the biker lifestyle was first defined, and when such countercultural movements were electrifying and horrifying America. Thompson, the creator of Gonzo journalism, writes with his usual bravado, energy, and brutal honesty, and with a nuanced and incisive eye; as The New Yorker pointed out, “For all its uninhibited and sardonic humor, Thompson’s book is a thoughtful piece of work.” As illuminating now as when originally published in 1967, Hell’s Angels is a gripping portrait, and the best account we have of the truth behind an American legend.
