Shoulder to Shoulder: Broadening the Men’s Shed Movement

A new addition to the shedworker's bookshelf, ‘Shoulder to Shoulder: Broadening the Men’s Shed Movement’ by Professor Barry Golding is a follow up to his 2015 The Men’s Shed Movement: the Company of Men and looks at the state of men's sheds around the world today in the UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the US and Denmark, as well as Women’s Sheds. Barry is a Professor in adult and community education of Federation University Australia in Ballarat.

The book includes 130 case studies - 20 from the UK - and additionally looks at how the coronavirus pandemic has affected the movement. "The book captures the essence of Sheds and answers how and why they work," says Charlie Bethel, Chief Officer, UK Men’s Sheds Association
