Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
There has been an increased awareness of physical, mental, verbal, and sexual abuse by men over the past few years. As a result, more studies are being conducted to determine why men act the way they do. Allen, founder of the Texas Wildman Gatherings, and Robinson, author of The Montgomery Bus Boycott and the Women Who Started It ( LJ 5/1/87), have compiled numerous personal accounts of men who are seeking help through counseling. The accounts reveal the men's true feelings and experiences from childhood to manhood. The book does an excellent job in showing how parents shape a child's masculinity through their actions and words. According to the authors, the only truly masculine emotion is anger, which is healthy. When anger becomes rage, however, there is usually a problem that can be traced to childhood. This is an excellent book for counselors and students and is appropriate for most libraries.-- H. Robert Malinowsky, Univ. of Illinois at Chicago
