    The list of books seems to be unique . Books that talk about reality are rare. And this is an impressive list indeed.

    I absolutely loved Justin Baldoni in Jane The Virgin. I wasn’t aware he’s an author too. Thanks for this list. I believe a change can be brought about only through books and other sources of mainstream media.

    It is really sad that men are taken so for granted today. Though they deserve this attention as welll

      Toxic masculinity is often accompanied by intense bouts of mansplaining! This seems like an interesting list of must reads

    I love how you read varied genres and introduce them to us, Ritu. I loved your suggestions on books based on the Environment and today through this post i learnt something new again. Going to check out these books as well.

    This looks like a book to read to understand a very different perspective. Thank you for the recommendation. #MyepicaReads

      Glad you addressed this topic. The pressure men face is the same as what women face on day-to-day basis. Patriarchy is two-folded!

    It’s so important to include everyone in the conversation so we can have better, more inclusive solutions because so many of these traits are ingrained in us that we don’t even realize we’re being toxic until someone points it out – or it happens to a loved one.

      You are absolutely right, Suchita. We often don’t realize it until it affects someone close.

    I am glad to see that the conversation on toxic masculinity has begun and it’s spreading. These books sound like a must-read for everyone. Just watched the Ted Talk too, it’s powerful.

    Makes total sense. It all starts with ‘boys don’t cry’ and ‘stop crying like a girl’. Sad, but true. Therefore I let my son cry when he feels like. Need more awareness on such topics.

    You have raised a point that I was discussing with my friends yesterday, of how to raise boys who are emotionally mature and will be equal partners later in life.
    These two books are making us aware of how toxic masculinity can affect men too.
    p.s. I am in awe of the range of books you read.
