by Cliff Leak - £14.99  Wide Eyed Editions (2019)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781786033291 | ISBN 10: 1786033291

From boys to men, be inspired by 30 coming-of-age stories of sportsmen, artists, politicians, educators and scientists.
 
Meet 30 positive male role models from throughout history. From activists like Mahatma Gandhi and Frederick Douglass to creative innovators like Prince and David Hockney, these men have fought conventional stereotypes to prove that modern-day masculinity can be defined freely.
 
Instead of a single model of how a boy can grow into a man, this book offers 30 stories of people whose lives demonstrate that there are endless possibilities – that boys and men can do and be so much more than what we think of when we say things like ‘boys will be boys.’
 
Discover a world of inspirational change-makers, teachers, peacemakers, artists, scientists and more who have defied the expectations, care deeply about others, stand up for what is right and express themselves in creative and exciting ways.
