The Manual: A practical guide to life, health and happiness - Dr Kieran Kennedy and Scott Henderson
What does it mean to be a man in the 2020s?
In a fast-paced and ever-changing world, the way young men see themselves, masculinity and men's health is evolving. We're now in an era where success isn't defined by your job title or the circumference of your bicep. Traditional definitions of masculinity no longer apply, as blokes all over the globe crave a more holistic approach to health, life and happiness.
So how do we navigate the new landscape?
In their ground-breaking book, psychiatrist Dr Kieran Kennedy and health journalist Scott Henderson provide a blueprint for modern manhood. They have written a guide for any young man hungry for knowledge on how to traverse life, mental health and relationships, and how 'all the feels' are intertwined with the traditional pillars of wellbeing, like exercise and nutrition. For the health obsessed and the health curious, The Manual celebrates the changing face of manhood with relatable and practical tools to empower men to think of health as more than purely skin deep.
Let's help you be your best man.
