It will help young men create good relationships and make sure that dating violence has no place in our lives. Serious yet entertaining, intelligent yet accessible, challenging yet fun.

Praise for Man Talk!


"This handy little primer is required pre-game reading for college guys!"—Michael Kimmel, SUNY Stony Brook


"This delightful read has the potential to be a key influence and game changer for straight (i.e. hetersexual) young men. It is evidence-based straight talk that provides concrete coaching on the how tos for healthy sexual/intimate relationships with women."—Rebecca Cline, Ohio Domestic Violence Network


"Man Talk uses the best kind of talk – honest, open, respectful – to call men to be the best kind of men: honest, open, respectful. If men take to heart its heartfelt message (always engaging and often humorous), the “good” sex they want will always be ethically good sex. A wonderful resource."—Harry Brod, University of Northern Iowa


"Man Talk offers advice and provocations about sex, relationships, respect and staying safe. It has interesting, poignant, funny, blunt, and caring elements, just like real and meaningful conversations between friends should have."—Jason Laker, San José State University


"Man Talk is an easy and fun read that contains valuable information for all men - to ensure we have healthy  relationships and to help our friends do the same.  This is the kind of "man-talk" that all of us men need more of in our lives."—Alan Berkowitz, Sexual Violence Prevention Expert
