The Book

Men everywhere are quietly struggling, suffering in silence. They live bound by a toxic vow of silence that leaves them isolated and unable to fully connect with themselves and the people in their lives. When this pain is driven underground, the consequences are damaging and often fatal.

The time has come for us to break the vow of male silence.

Through raw, vulnerable storytelling blended with challenging questions and provocative insights into how the vow of male silence manifests in our world, Nige Atkinson exposes the insanity of toxic masculinity and cuts through the theoretical discourse on the subject. Instead, Odd Man Out offers an intensely personal approach to redefining masculinity and reclaiming your full humanity.

Odd Man Out is a gritty, heartfelt book for men who want to know more about themselves and women who want to know more about the men in their lives.

Nige and Elloa Atkinson are a powerful husband and wife team with extensive teaching, facilitation and coaching experience. They are passionate, insightful and unafraid to challenge the status quo.
