From the stay-at-home dad to the metrosexual to the new macho revival, trendspotters and bestselling authors of Next show how the role of men has evolved and what it means for business and our culture. This is a revealing exploration of a market in flux--comprising half the population of the world--men.

Instead, guided by our parents, by our teachers, by our managers, and by psychology's fascination with pathology, we become experts in our weaknesses and spend our lives trying to repair these flaws, while our strengths lie dormant and neglected. Marcus Buckingham, coauthor of the national bestseller First, Break All the Rules, and Donald O. Clifton, Chair of the Gallup International Research & Education Center, have created a revolutionary program to help readers identify their talents, build them into strengths, and enjoy consistent, near-perfect performance. At the heart of the book is the Internet-based Str... Rest of this review on the detail page
