A beautifully brave book by a very modernday human. In Man Down, Charlie Hoare stands naked in front of the macho all-boy's club of life and opens his heart. With solid advice and simple tips, Charlie invites culturally handcuffed men all over the world to own their emotions and talk about how they feel.
