John Gray, author of Men Are From Mars & Women Are From Venus
"Jed Diamond is, quite simply, one of the wisest men writing today on the topic of male emotional and physical health. The Irritable Male Syndrome is not only a powerful book, it is an essential one. He helps us understand why men are so irritable, angry, and depressed, and more importantly what men and women can do to prevent and treat these problems. This book can save your relationship and may even save your life. It is filled with personal examples and case studies of people the author has helped. Jed's care and compassion come across in every page. The Irritable Male Syndrome is a must read."

MenAlive seeks to enrich men's relationships with themselves, their families, and their communities.

MenAlive focuses on male menopause as a critical bridge to the second half of life. We focus on the Irritable Male Syndrome and men and depression, to prepare men to cross that bridge. We address the hormonal, physical, psychological, interpersonal, sexual, nutritional, economic, social, ecological, and spiritual aspects of men's health and act as an influential source of timely information, resources, products and community centered events on male menopause and men's health, for men and the women who love them.
