BOOK REVIEW:
THE DESCENT OF MAN BY GRAYSON PERRY

Title: The Descent of Man
Author: Grayson Perry
Published: 2017
Language: English
Pages: 150
Rating: 3/5


Summary:
In this book, the author explores masculinity, how it operates and what kind of masculinity would really benefit men and a modern society.


Review:
This was a pretty good book, but a bit too basic for me.

I think the author has a good and fascinating voice, and it's pretty perfect for this job. The writing is funny, honest and intelligent. It's also easy to understand; it's not the kind of book that'll go straight over peoples head. It's down to earth, easy to connect with and short and concise.

Like I mentioned though, it felt a bit too rudimentary for me; I think this works best as an introduction to discussions around gender and masculinity. It's a great read if you're new to reading about feminism, and I think it would be especially great reading for men who are open to these kinds of ideas but new to them.
