Editorial Reviews

Kate Heaney
In the book [Mac Giolla Bhain] looks at why it is predominantly young men who are taking their own lives and what might be done to prevent it.... he puts forward an analysis as to why this is a killer of men and not women in modern Ireland.
Donegal News
Robbie Dinwoodie
The author's style is conversational, personal, and at times confrontational as he takes on what he sees as the feminist orthodoxy now dominating social policy in his country and ours. That will spawn its own debate. But what is not in doubt is his passion and compassion. He has the burning zeal of a campaigner who believes a great wrong has been done to young men, compounded by the burying of their fate.

    A book well worth reading

    This book opened my eyes on a topic I knew little about. I had no idea that so many preventable deaths had occurred in Ireland in recent years mainly because the deaths get little coverage except perhaps when they are sensationalised.
    The topic is a difficult one. Most preventable deaths are male and this is highlighted in the book. The percentage of male deaths far exceeds female deaths. We should all be asking why this is so. The dumbing down of this fact is also highlighted and the author discusses how feminism has contributed to this dumbing down.
    Phil Mac Giolla Bhain has put together an excellent book, well worth reading. You may find this topic rarely discussed in the media but Phil's book certainly fills that void.
