What People Are Saying

Maja Storch
"What type of man are strong women longing for? A strong man. In a very sensitive way, Elliott Katz teaches us a lot about this difficult matter. It is a lot of fun reading his book."--(Dr. Maja Storch, University of Zurich, Author of The Strong Woman's Desire for the Strong Man)
Steve Biddulph
"A brave and creative attempt to pass on the wisdom of strength without harm, wisdom that was once part of the training of gentle, strong and loving manhood in a thousand cultures more subtle and skillful than our own. To be strong does not mean dominating. Only when a man and a woman are both strong, can they be truly close."--(Steve Biddulph, Author of The Secret Life of Men, Raising Boys, The Secret of Happy Children and The Secret of a Happy Family )
Warren Farrell
(An insightful book about one of life's most important goals: How a man can be a hero to his wife. - Shmuley Boteach, Author of Kosher Sex ,The Private Adam and Kosher Adultery A cautionary tale, it cautions us to not throw out the baby with the bath water - to not toss out the man with the insensitivity."--(Warren Farrell, Ph.D., Author of Why Men Are the Way They Are and Women Can't Hear What Men Don't Say)

Read an Excerpt

It's not being controlling
Michael turned to Grandpa and said, "What you're saying is so different from what I've always heard. Isn't it being controlling?"
"Sounds like you believe all the terrible things you've heard about men - even the jokes that make fools of men."
Michael smiled. "Like, what's the difference between men and fine wine?"
"What?"
"Wine matures with age."
Grandpa sighed with a sour look on his face. He shook his head. "Most men I know are decent, mature people."
"I know. But aren't some men controlling?"
"Some. But don't confuse being strong with being controlling. Being strong is hard work. It's a burden. It's taking responsibility for what's going on, taking charge and finding solutions to problems."
"You really think that's what Lisa wants? Do you really think it would make a difference?"
"Michael, once I learned this, Grandma started respecting me more, even when she disagreed with me."
"She didn't see you as controlling?"
"If she wanted something a certain way, and I was against it just to be bossy - then that would be controlling. If I had insisted on something that showed I cared only about myself - that would be controlling. But when you set a goal that shows you care about your loved ones and you stick to it even when people are against you, that's being strong."
"What did you do?"
"I'll teach you. Listen."
