    Samuel Leighton-Dore knows that masculinity is a myth. A big, dumb, silly, poorly constructed myth! This picture book pokes light-hearted fun at the very notion of manhood, by offering an updated guide to masculinity. Thus: How to Be A Big, Strong Man.

    Just a few short years ago, anyone using the term "toxic masculinity" would likely have received blank stares in return. But now, at this critical juncture, many in Australia are thinking and talking about how ideas of manhood (as prescribed from birth) affects the way all men think and act. How to Be A Big, Strong Man explores all these weighty ideas through fun, cheeky and satirical cartoons.

    Through 150 tongue-in-cheek illustrations by multimedia artist Samuel Leighton-Dore, this book explores the many identities of a modern man. Manly man gets a pedicure, and manly man calls his Grandmother for a nice long chat. Above all, a manly man can cry whenever he bloody well pleases.
