What's going on behind the bravado of the 'average Aussie bloke'? Following the untimely deaths of two friends, Rob Mills began questioning who he is as a person and a man. Soon his self-reflection shifted outwards and he got to wondering how typical is he of an Aussie bloke, anyway? Who is the average Aussie bloke, and does he even exist? What does he see as his purpose in the world? How's the state of his mental health? What does he think about gender roles, about family, sex and mateship, about violence and vulnerability? Charged by his naturally inquisitive nature, and with enough smarts to know he didn't have all the answers, Rob called on the help of experts and friends. This book is the result of all those questions: a fascinating, chatty, insightful and often hilarious deep dive into both his own life and that of the man on the street.
