Self-Made Man by Norah Vincent

Self-Made Man is one of those rare, insightful books that lives up to and even exceeds the hype.

Recounting the year and a half in which author Norah Vincent disguised herself as Ned in order to observe the world of men as an insider, Self-Made Man is at once a fascinating piece of immersion journalism and a serious analysis of gender and gender roles in America.

The book is hugely entertaining and very much worth reading. You'll laugh at loud, be inspired to talk about the topics raised by the author, and think and reflect long after you finish the text.
