Boys need to know that prince charmings and brave hunters are not the only role models.
As statistics keep showing that there is an ongoing crisis with regards to young men and mental health, with unhelpful gender stereotypes contributing to this malaise, Stories for Boys Who Dare To Be Different offers a welcome alternative narrative. It is an extraordinary compilation of 100 stories of famous and not-so-famous men from the past to the present day, every single one of them a rule-breaker and innovator in his own way, and all going on to achieve amazing things. Entries include our own Taika Waititi, Frank Ocean, Salvador Dali, Rimbaud, Beethoven, Barack Obama, Ai Weiwei and Jesse Owens – different sorts of heroes from all walks of life and from all over the world.
Ben Brooks was born in 1992 and lives in Berlin. He is the author several books, including Grow Up and Lolito, which won the Somerset Maugham Award in 2015.
