Iron Man book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Iron John: A Book About Men (Paperback)
This may be a Classic but to me its Classic Californian Claptrap. He creates his own myths and then calls on them as authority. That's like writing your own Job Reference. Not worth the paper its printed on. I couldn't be bothered finishing it to be fair.

Robert Bly did not invent Iron John - it is a classic Grimm tale from Germany. He did not invent the interpretations either - so your argument is invalid, at least about the tale and the interpretations. It is true that a lot of "Classic Californian Claptrap" has sprouted up from it, but do not blame this book.
