MATT HAIG AUTHOR AND ACTIVIST
For the inaugural Hearst Big Book Awards, the MH editors and a panel of readers cracked the spines of the health and fitness titles that will change the way you eat, move and think this summer and beyond
Although more men than ever are speaking out about mental health, many still mistake illness for weakness. Haig proves otherwise
What are you striving to achieve this year? A healthy body? Perhaps some improvements to your diet? Hopefully, you’ll want to exercise your mind as much as those mirror muscles. Whatever your goal, you can guarantee that there is a book on the subject. Many, in fact. In line with the exponential growth of the wellness industry – with its apps, social media influencers and vloggers – the delightfully analogue medium has gone from strength to, well, stronger. So, Big Book polled thousands of readers to find the best new page-turners for becoming a better man. It’s time to turn over a new leaf.
