Ok, I freely admit that the title is a bit cheesy and that is a great pity, but after reading the book... what else could she have called it?

This is such an important book about the internal relationships women have with the male aspects of their souls, though it is far more then that alone. In this book women share their experiences of the daimon, a figure that has been misunderstood and demonised by men and religion because they simply cannot understand its function. Men have written endlessly about the Muse. Well, this is one for the girls. If you want to understand yourself better and those experiences and dreams that some of us are lucky enough to have from time to time, get a copy. I have never read another book like this. To Ms Matthews, please write another and take the concept further, I was left wanting more!!!

This book really made me think more about my own inner male and also my masculinity, it doesn't force you into one way of thinking it just gives you pointers, I have recommended this book to many women I know.

5.0 out of 5 stars One to go back to 25 April 2000
By Mrs Groan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A journey through the female psyche by a woman who knows. One can feel the empathy pour from the words in this book; reading it is a revelation, like having a wise old woman take you by the hand and say "This is why... this is the way." Matthews works her way through the many paths of a woman's life, sorting through the hurtful thoughts and inner criticisms that make up the monsters we all carry around in our minds. Effortlessly she unmasks them, making you wonder how you could ever have been fooled, how you could ever have believed a word they said. She shows us how to reach past the lies to find that which loves us - our daimon as she calls it, though others would perhaps refer to it as the Jungian animus. Once found, this daimon, this creative, passionate part of the female soul, sustains us and gives new meaning to our life. A wonderful, inspiring, moving book that you will read again and again.

The sender got the book to me PDQ and it was in very good condition as advertised. No problems there. Reading the contents is another matter. I respect that this topic has not been covered very widely, and I was glad to find this book for that reason. I've been slowly making my way through it. As one who is widely educated and well read in the general area that the author references, I have to say that she is only mildly well researched herself, and the conclusions she draws from her sources and her (very narrowly chosen) group of responders is debatable at best. It's a worthy subject. I wish more people would work with it. But if someone new to the field takes the author's assertions as fact, they will be misled. Beyond not being much of a thinker, Caitlin Matthews is also not much of a writer, so...bravo for taking up a little discussed and worthy topic, but, please, someone who knows more about it, please right a better book! (I think this may have been a PhD dissertation?)

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful but too New Agey for me 31 Aug. 2011
By Chora - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What I like about this book--it has excerpts from women, so it tries to capture a variety of psychological worlds. Also, it has questions at the end of each chapter to help you meditate further on the different topics, and the bibliography at the back looks helpful.
What I didn't like about this book--it's super New Agey (priestesses talking about rituals, not that there's anything wrong with that... just not my style), and I felt like there was not enough variety in the women interviewed to get a clear view of women's psychology.
