1999 Books by Publisher

Menstuff® has broken down the books that we received that were published in 1999 by publisher. We received a total of 144 of such books - at least one in 52 of the 92 men's issues we have broken down. They came from 102 different publishers - an average of 1.4 books per publisher covering a subject with a close to distant connection to a men's issue.

It is becoming more and more evident that men's issues are being represented more and more through small, independent publishers. This also means that most men's books don't receive much promotional support or distribution. First, start reading. Women buy over 75% of the books published. So, we men have to start taking some responsibility to buy, give, read and pass on recommendations on books we like. Then, starting asking your local bookstore to start a men's section, if they don't already have one (we'll tell you what to say) and order books they don't have. Especially small bookstores are loosing out to the chains and internet, and their problem will only get worse if they don't service special markets like men's books. Can't wait?  Want to buy a book now and support The National Men's Resource Center at the same time? Click here to go to the bottom of this page and connect up to Amazon.com and order away. We'll all benefit!

See Books for a comprehensive list of over 3,500 books on 100 men's issues. When you buy books, go first to a bookstore that has a separate men's section and if they don't have a separate men's section, click here to find out How to start a section? Second, buy books at Amazon.com through us. We're a non-profit, and it would help us expand this web site even more. Order through the icon at the bottom of this and each issues and book page.

As our awareness and understanding builds around the fact that the world and relationships can't improve without inviting men to join in, books, tapes and videos are some great ways of allowing men to do some of the important individual work in preparation for their full participation with others. Review the following. Consider giving yourself and a friend a gift of some of this knowledge. Please purchase/order books from bookstores who have shown their support for men by setting up a separate men's issue section (refer to Bookstores).
