For much of the past century, says Rob Garfield ’67, men have operated under the rules of the Male Code, which equates masculinity with stoicism, silence, and strength. As a result, some men suffer from depression and feelings of isolation because they do not know how to express their emotions. In Breaking the Male Code: Unlocking the Power of Friendship, Garfield, a psychiatrist, urges men to abandon traditional ideas of masculinity and offers a step-by-step guide to starting and deepening their male friendships so they can lead happier and healthier lives.
