From the Back Cover
What does it really mean to be a man? What are some of the landmarks along the road to mature masculinity? And what of the feminine components of a man's personality? Robert A. Johnson explores these questions in this new edition of 'He', updated to reflect his thinking on these subjects.
Robert A. Johnson is a noted lecturer and Jungian analyst in private practice in San Diego, California. He is the author of 'She: Understanding Feminine Psychology' and 'We: Understanding the Psychology of Romantic Love'. He has studied at the Jung Institute in Switzerland and at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in India.
"Women do not really know as much about men as they think they do. They have developed, over the centuries, considerable expertise in the technique of adapting to men, but that is not the same as truly understanding them. Women often labour under the delusion that life is really pretty easy for men, at least when compared to their own lots, and they have no idea what a complicated struggle is really involved in the transition from male childhood to real manhood
I recommend this book highly. It is entertaining, informative, thought-provoking, mysterious, poetic. Men who read it will surely learn much about themselves, and women- particularly those who are unfortunately misled into thinking of men as 'the enemy'- will find it a real eye-opener"

None of his books are any longer than a decent sized pamphlet and I can't entirely understand why someone who evidently has a need to communicate his ideas can't be bothered to deliver something that will do them justice. In Jungian terms I'd say that writing constellates his guru complex and he contents himself with gnomic statements and a general attitude of 'Go figure it yourself'.
He's a perceptive writer though and one who it's easy to warm to. This book is an ideal jargon free starting point that presents a complex subject in a very informative way. As other reviewers have pointed out, the book deconstructs Parsifal and the Grail Legend. After I read it I had a lot of fun doing the same with Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. Malory - Tennyson - Jung - Johnson - George Lucas. Ain't evolution amazin'.
Thoughts about the inner femininity of men and their search to understand and encompass meaning in their lives. If you have an adolescent son, very much worth reading!

I put the book down after reading two chapters and skimming the rest to see what it was like.
I'm easy to please, but I didn't find anything I liked about this book. Read more
