Real honesty about the real issues men face

Many men are fighting secret wars against workaholism, sexual addictions, substance abuse, pornography, and extramarital affairs. Most are reluctant to seek help. But men don't have to struggle alone and become casualties. They can win these battles.

Through the candid stories of Patrick Means and other men who have fought similar battles, you can learn to recognize the "at risk" factors that precede the development of a secret life and take comfort in the fact that you are not alone in your struggle. This new edition includes new writing from the author, along with the Personal Growth Plan and a leader's guide for small groups and counselors.

"An invitation to new life and a loving hand to guide us toward healing."--Stephen A. Hayner, president, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship

"Pat's courage on speaking the truth will lead to steps of freedom for many men."--Gregg Jantz, executive director, The Center for Counseling and Health Resources, Inc.
