As a man that has been, in one way or another, confused and bewildered for most of his life, I found this book to be simply life changing. Robert Bly has shown me the key to what has been missing in most of the relationships that I have had throughtout my life. I was completely astouded and pleased to learn how past ancient cultures knew so much about the essence of manhood and how they passed it down through mythology, legends and fairy tales. At the same time it has made me sad that this knowledge has been mostly lost in our everyday modern lives. The book was difficult to read because Bly jumps from one metaphor into the next, sometimes without explanation. Possibly this was done to make you 'feel' the meaning of the book without thinking too much. At any cost, it is well worth the time for anyone who is trying to understand his place in this world as a man.
