Reviews

"There is something in this book that every man can relate to, and every man should read it--with or without his partner."-Jerry Steinberg Founder of the non-profit social club, NO KIDDING!
"This book fills an important gap in our understanding of men, their feelings, motivations, and reasons for staying childfree. Patricia Lunneborg has let us see the real men behind the public silence on the topic of reproductive choice for men: they are not 'selfish'--but they are conscious of what makes life meaningful for them....Read this book and you will get insights about gender, lifestyle, and masculinity that you never had before."-Pepper Schwartz Professor of Sociology University of Washington Author of Love Between Equals, What I Learned about Sex

For the social scientist the study provides an eye-opening look at an underexamined subject and suggests a wealth of hypotheses to guide future research.?-Population and Development Review
