I Wish He'd Taught Me How to Shave is a compilation of "Dr. Dave's" reflections and students' essays from his popular Saint Michael's College gender studies course in Men and Masculinities.Landers distills into thematic chapters what he has learned from his decades-long career as a college professor and student counselor about the generational damage done when society holds strict and limiting views about masculinity:such as, real men don't cry, feel afraid, lost,or indecisive; real men like sports; are primary breadwinners; take foolish risks and put themselves in danger(YOLO, You Only Live Once). Readers will hear students recount the powerful, poignant and profound ways that fathers defy or buy into these constructs and influence their children's defining views of a man.
