Men, towards the end of the last millennium, felt a sudden tightening of the bowels with the news that the services of their sex had at last been dispensed with. Dolly the Sheep - conceived without male assistance - had arrived. Her birth reminded at least half the population of how precarious man's position may be. What is the point of being a man? For a brief and essential instant he is a donor of DNA; but outside that glorious moment his role is hard to understand.


This book is about science not society; about maleness not manhood. The condition is, in the end, a matter of biology, whatever limits that science may have in explaining the human condition. Today's advances in medicine and in genetics mean at last we understand why men exist and why they are so frequent. We understand from hormones to hydraulics how man's machinery works, why he dies so young and how his brain differs from that of the rest of mankind.

Steve Jones

Steve has spent nearly thirty years creating powerful radio brands in the US, Canada and the Caribbean. He has had a front row seat to the rise and sometimes the fall of some of rock \'n\' roll\'s biggest stars. Those insights form the foundation of his debut book Brand Like a Rock Star. Bringing together his mutual love of music and marketing, Steve takes you onstage, backstage and behind the scenes with rock’s biggest stars to reveal how their experiences can help your business become more profitable and more famous. Using the stories behind stars like AC/DC, U2, Bob Dylan, Lady Gaga, Jimmy Buffett, Kiss and the Grateful Dead, Steve shows you how to build a brand that rocks. As a speaker and consultant, Steve has helped businesses of all sizes develop stronger bonds with their customers by creating solid brands. When he isn\'t speaking, writing and rockin, Steve is vice president of programming for Newcap Radio, overseeing content on over eighty radio stations. Steve is an avid hockey player, traveler, scuba diver and pilot. He lives on Canada\'s east coast, just outside Halifax, Nova Scotia, with his wife Susan and their two boys, Isaac and Matthew. If you press shuffle on his iPod, you are most likely to hear Bob Marley.
