Man of Steel and Velvetby Aubrey Andelin
In these painful and confusing times it is all too easy to lose sight of the fundamental meaning of what it is to be a man and what it is to be a woman. Based on Christian ethics as taught in the Bible, Man of Velvet helps men and women gain a clearer perspective on true masculinity. It shows how the combined traits of the firmness of steel and the gentleness of velvet make a man who is a good provider and devoted husband worthy of the respect of his wife and children. With wisdom, insight and humor, Dr. Aubrey Andelin - whose wife, Helen Andelin, is the bestselling author of Fascinating Womanhood - offers his successful program for Christian harmony. From what it means to be a man to how to handle children and win their hearts, from conjugal love to the division of household chores, this book will make a happy difference in your marriage, in your life and in the lives of your children.

Great book, "right on the money". Teenage boys should read in order to understand what it is to be a "man" and young ladies should read to know what a real "man" is. This book helps build truely healthy and well balanced men.
Excellent, very insightful book. It is blunt at times about what manhood represents, but if we could get this added to the cirriculum of every high school instead of some of the other things our students are forced to read, we could turn out some significantly more mature young men.
I read 'Fascinating Womanhood' and it helped me so much to be a better wife for my Husband. I bought 'Man of Steel and Velvet' for my husband and gave it to him for his Birthday. He read it and it has helped him be a better husband. God is the center of our marriage.
A real jewel, and a marriage-saver in many cases! Mr. Andelin is to be highly commended for his work. Five stars plus!!
His theory is way too idealistic to work, not to mention arrogant. I was very disappointed.
