The fifth installment of our weekly #BrainTraining Live series on our Instagram is tomorrow night at 8pm. Joining James this week will be Martin Robinson.
Martin is a journalist and writer who, in his twenty year career, has written or been in editorial positions for magazines and publications including NME, ShortList, and Maxim.
Three years ago in 2018, he founded The Book of Man, a new media brand for men that's also a supportive online network offering advice and inspiration that is leading the way in talking about and encouraging the discussion on modern masculinity, and challenging the old toxic definitions of this, mental health included.
The Book of Man website now has a fast growing audience, with a combined social media following of over 15,000 (us included, we love the content on there). In 2019, the website also won the PPA Innovation of the Year award. And if that wasn't enough, Martin also published his first book in February this year.
'You Are Not the Man You Are Supposed to Be: Into the Chaos of Modern Masculinity' is a powerful, honest and in-depth insight into a lot of the wider issues surrounding the modern man. It is this amongst other things we'll be discussing with Martin, plus we'll be asking him about his own mental health journey and what he does to stay mentally and physically well.
As always we'd love you to get involved, if you've got any questions you'd like to ask Martin about what we'll be discussing then get them in. You can email us firstname.lastname@example.org or Tweet us your question on any of our social media platforms. Just use the hashtag #BrainTrainingLive.
