" This is a clear and thought-provoking book, a synthesis of much recent literature on masculine identity that should appeal to a broad readership— women as well as men." — Jim Boothroyd, "The Montreal Gazette"

Now that I'm around 30 after a long period during which I've isolated myself I came across a few deceptions in relationships deceptions that ultimately lead me into finding answers and getting to know about myself. A big "aha" for me was after reading 3 pages I realised the differences between becoming a man and becoming a woman, how hard it is for boys if a father is not there to breakthrough and to elaborate themselves from the mother.
I didn't finish the book but I believe the rest of the book is as good as the first third.
I will comeback with a followup when I will be finishing the book.
Men masculinity is a really interesting topic: where do you learn how to be a man? This book explains quite easily (the writing is quite scientific-like, but I am not a native English speaker and could follow it really well) some of the reasons why most of the current modern males have not yet grown into men.
This is something you may want for yourself, especially if you want to have a good relationship with a woman.
What happens when you did not _feel_ that your father was there, taking care of you? Why did it happen? For how long did it happen? Is there any solution for this?
All these questions are answered in this book, and you will get a new insight in the topic.
brilliant for all with a desire to get free. so many lost sons, and fathers, searching for an identity so they can let go of it. the bourne trilogy (matt damon) films, together with related reading like this one. . . don't think , just do it.
whatever helps us to understand our intricate cage, and to see the patterns of suffering based on ignorance, is an aid to jump over the whole, wonderful mess and become content with who we are, wherever we are.
just the title of this book is a step on the path of letting go, getting free: the only thing that makes sense in this collective madness on earth.
if you have the will to be free, don't think about it - just do it.
