From The Critics
"To his credit, Kantor avoids overly complicated writing and jargon, attempting to appeal to a broader church than professionals. Additionally, the author is obviously well attuned to the issues facing men prone to depression. His sensitivity to men and their issues is a real strength of the book. Thus, readers will find some fascinating reading here on a broad range of issues including sadomasochism and male depression, male lear of success and depression, the translation of male depression into hypomania, anger and self- or other-criticism, and dealing with male client resistances (for example, excessively blaming others or not feeling the need for help). The psychotherapy and self-help chapters are particularly useful in showing the broad tools that men can use . . . Kantor should be commended for putting out there his best understanding from the perspective of an experienced practitioner. I believe this book is an excellent place to start for those practitioners and clients who wish to learn more about depression among a surprisingly neglected group—men."
