Time To Talk: How Men Think About Love, Belonging and Connection


We recommend this…

if you want to improve your relationships or your mental health as a man.

A quick summary

In Time to Talk, Alex Holmes looks at six beliefs about ‘real men’ that lie deep underneath all sorts of self-doubt, shame, fear and stress. He calls each one to the surface and shows how limiting and harmful it is – and what the alternative could be. He covers work, confidence, body image, failure and success, relationships and communication – using his own experience, interviews with other men, and research on effective ways to strengthen mental health and improve relationships. This book is so different from a typical list of ‘top tips for…’ because it looks at underlying beliefs, which can lead to much more meaningful and authentic change.


Publisher’s description

We live in a super-connected world, yet men specifically, struggle to connect and share. This is changing… but not quickly enough.

Award winning podcaster Alex Holmes sets out to accelerate this shift, debunking lingering myths around masculinity, love and connection by exploring what causes this sense of loneliness. Starting with ‘Real Man Myths’ and features designed to encourage us to open up and share, Alex motivates us to move from:

  • Ignoring to Acknowledging
  • Being Closed to Opening Up
  • Can’t to Can
  • Avoiding to Embracing
  • Expecting to Accepting

Sharing his experiences on his podcast and as a young British black man, Time to Talk is a love letter to all the men who have lost their way and to the women that love them.
