'When Men Think Private Thoughts' is clearly the product of extensive research and soul-searching on the author's part. Exploring the innermost thoughts and motivations that drive us blokes, and identifying common stumbling-blocks, he includes himself in what he says, such that it would be difficult to find him patronising or condescending at any stage. And that is what helps make this book such an engaging read. This is not the work of someone who claims to sit on the high-ground; rather, this is someone who experiences, and has experienced, the same issues that beset us, and who aims to debunk them in turn.
MacDonald voices in the introduction his suspicion, fear even, that more women than men will read the book, due to our general reluctance to explore the things of the mind. Hopefully, though, this will not turn out to be a self-fulfilling prophecy, because, talking now from a personal perspective, I have finished this book understanding much more why I am like I am - and with any luck that has a bearing on how I relate to others. Very highly recommended.
I strongly recommend this book, particularly to all Christian men whom have passion about their faith and a strong desire to look at the organising of their inner self, to assess their own values and the meaning of what God intended should constitute a man!

While MacDonald has some insightful comments, I thought the book's flow was unstructured and meandered on many paths when addressing an issue like sexuality. Quite frankly, I sometimes had a problem trying to follow what the author was saying. It was as if he was trying to mix too much pop psychology with biblical wisdom.
To MacDonald's credit, I thought the book closed strongly in the last 3 chapters: The Formation of Character, The Meaning of Work, and The Significance of Legacy.
In summary, the book was okay. However, in my humble opinion, other titles such as "Renewing Your Spiritual Passion", "Ordering Your Private World", and "The Life God Blesses" are much better books.
I highly recommend this book to men, because a lot of women have made us feel that we are not normal. This book backs up the fact that you think the way you do for a purpose, a God intended purpose.
I also highly recommend this book for women because they have no idea how weird we really are. This is a GREAT book for any woman wanting to know how men think. I imagine for them it is going to be a bit confusing. I am currently in the process of buying a copy for every woman I have ever dated.
I HIGHLY recommend this book.
So I bought and read 3 more of his books.
