What I want to do with this book is present what I think is the real side of men. In The Life of Men I share what I have been hearing from men in my urology practice over the past forty years.
As a man, woman, or parent of a boy, I'll take you through the health, social and cultural factors that must be recognized, reflected upon, and understood now if we are to improve men's health and place in society.

These revelations have given us greater detail and a better understanding of the ‘mechanics’ of how men perceive and interpret the world, but the basics haven’t changed. Do not interpret that statement rigidly. The basics support a vast, fantastic and exciting array of life and behavior. Still, a denial of the basics contributes to inner and social conflict, destroys complimentary relationships, and may lead to abuse. In this book we will review and explore new revelations about the basics, about how they are manifest, and how they are being manipulated. We’ll look on with a bit of amusement at recent news articles based upon scientific studies using the most advanced brain mapping and scanning techniques; articles with splashy title like The Economist’s Vive la difference! that declare “men and women do not think in the same way.” For scientists using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and positron emission tomography (PET) these discoveries may be A Ha! moments—and the science is fascinating and important— but the reaction from most men has been, “Huh? Didn’t you know that?!”
What I want to do with this book is present what I think is the real side of men. I want to relate what I have been hearing from men in my urology practice over the past forty years. I have had many conversations with these gentlemen, and have consistently been impressed but the fact that what they are thinking and feeling is very unlike what society is thinking and feeling about them.
