Men must be the worst oppressors in history – we pay the most taxes, get the least support and play longer matches at Wimbledon for no extra money. We’re also more likely to be homeless, attacked, jailed, drafted, under-educated, short-changed in parenthood and shafted by divorce. Oh, and to top it all, we die sooner. Despite this, feminists still assert we live in a patriarchy and give us a hard time.

Fortunately, Peter Lloyd is here to offer a reality check in this long-overdue lad bible. Part polemic, part toolkit for the modern man, Stand By Your Manhood answers all the burning questions facing the brotherhood today, including:

• Should we fund the first date?

• Is penis size a political issue?

• Are we sexist if we enjoy pornography?

• Why isn’t there a men’s minister?

Politically incorrect, fearless and laugh-out-loud funny, this is the deliciously provocative book that gives blokes their balls back.

Read a sample


“It is: intelligent, very well-researched including extensive interviews with many female academics and researchers, myth-busting, articulate, witty, upbeat, challenging, surprising, laugh out-loud funny in places, shocking in others, angry, compassionate, respectful of women, optimistic and a really good read.”

The Huffington Post

“A funny, frank read. I don’t think I’ll ever look at my manhood in the same way again.”

Danny Wallace

“A sophisticated tome for the modern man.”

The Mirror

“[An] angry, funny, provocative book [that] certainly offers plenty of food for thought. I am stirred by his rallying call for us to become ‘suffragents'.”

Brian Viner, Daily Mail

“Empowering and humorous... his entire book is a call to arms for men to celebrate, acknowledge, and take pride in themselves as men. [A] standing ovation for men.”
