When Peter West gives talks to parents about boys' education, it is consistently the boys' mothers who take the initiative. In this book his message is: Dad, wake up! Your son's education is your responsibility as well! Chapters range over a diversity of topics, including why fathers still matter; behaviour at school.

What does it mean to be a man? How has it changed? How do men relate to other men, and to women?

This book features interviews with  a cross-section of ordinary men about their lives, their loves and their most important relationships.
