3.0 out of 5 stars It's What Men Like to Read October 21, 2004
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Men's Journal is a decent magazine full of varied topics of interest to men. This magazine covers areas like sports, adventure travel, fashion and style, cars and trucks, career issues, etc. This publication directs all of its articles toward men, with an emphasis on what is most appealing to males throughout a typical week in their lives.

One thing about Men's Journal that is a little different from other men's magazines is that it doesn't flaunt women to sell its issues. In fact, there are practically no pictures of women at all in this publication- something that will be considered an asset to some, and a liability to others. This magazine refuses to play the female card and instead focuses its articles on topics that men like to read about.

Men's Journal is often obsessed with lists, and I think this is especially true in the last few years. Take a look at the cover of most issues and you will see a large, boldface advertisement for some sort of list. In one issue, it might be a ranking of the best cities for entry level jobs. In another issue, it might be a listing of the best places for young entrepreneurs. Whatever it might be, Men's Journal seems to have an infatuation with lists, probably because men like lists and it helps increase sales.

This magazine can be counted on to produce some fairly good reading, but I must warn that many of the articles are a little too simplistic, with little emphasis on intellectualism. Even the articles about politics and business are often riddled with obvious statements that most anyone would know. But overall, I still think Men's Journal is a good magazine. It is varied enough that most anyone will find something interesting to read and the price is very low.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun resource for active men October 26, 2001
By Dave
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
This is a great magazine to highlight the fun places to go, things to do and things to own. It is not highbrow with big book excerpts, nor is is lowbrow with a bunch of buxom women all over the magazine.

This is a magazine for active, athletic and adventurous men. There are 1 or 2 interesting articles about travel or adventure in each issue along with a feature article on varying topics from contributing writers. There are always good features on health and fitness tips. Lastly, the magazine highlights sports gear, fashion and gadgets.

It is a fun, light (usually) magazine that I look forward to receiving each month.

2.0 out of 5 stars I used to really enjoy MJ December 8, 2001
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Don't get me wrong, occasionally there are issues I still read cover to cover, but it seems as though MJ has gone through a change lately. Gone is the focus of travel and fantastic adventure writing. Now the focus seems to be health, fitness and diet. I used to buy Men's Health magazine for those topics. If I wanted that focus I would continue to buy MH. There is no longer a consistent reason to read MJ on a regular basis anymore. Man, I miss the old MJ!

4.0 out of 5 stars *not* Men's Health November 30, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
If Men's Health - a main competitor of the magazine here under review - strikes you as pandering to the average guy's baser instincts, you'll want to check out Men's Journal.

The tag line to this magazine's name reads 'Adventure Life'. That's a pretty good shot at the content, since it takes your average young rich guy's (or no-longer-young-in-the-mirror rich guy's) desires to live a little on the wild side and decks them out in luxury opportunities to do just that.

The writing is surprisingly good. We're not talking the Atlantic Monthly here, but recent issues have easy-on-the-eyes features on the crisis in Darfur, the late Aussie croc-wrestler Steve Irwin, and the down-in-the-mouth financial situation of our National Parks system.

Like most magazines of the genre, the gloss, paper quality, and color make this an easy read in an airplane seat or an easy chair: Men's Journal is pleasant to the touch, good for some mild distraction, and leaves no bitter aftertaste.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Discerning and Intellectual Cook's Magazine of Choice December 15, 2010
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal
Bottom-Line: If you are looking for a magazine written for the not-so-average Joe, "Men's Journal Magazine" might be for you.

The world of Men's magazines, or magazines that are marketed towards a certain portion of the male reading populace, is littered with twaddle that only seems to appeal to the baser instincts of the male gender. You know the magazines; they need not be mentioned here. Some are happily folding tent never to heard from again. Truth be told there are very few magazines that appeal to the more intellectual side of a man (yes ladies we do have such a side).

But recently as "special gift" for renewing my Bally's Total Fitness membership I received a 1 year subscription to "Men's Journal Magazine", "a general interest, active lifestyle magazine with a focus on adventure, travel, equipment, sports, fitness, health, and style."

"Men's Journal Magazine", is published monthly by Wenner Media, the same publishing house that brings us such notable sidewalk fare as Us Weekly and Rolling Stone. The magazine will set you back $3.95 an issue at the local newsstand, but 1 year subscriptions can be had for $9.95. Inside each approximately 120-page magazine you will not find half clothed women dripping with sexy come hither stares. Nor will you find the next Hollywood "it" girl, or wannabe skinny model with a fake tan gracing the pages of this Men's magazine. No, "Men's Journal" is serious business folks; vapid men with one track minds and adolescent libido's need not apply!

"Men's Journal" is a smartly written, thoughtfully designed magazine for the active intellectual male.
