Overview

At the Beginning of the Second Millennium, Men Are cautiously seeking alternative models of masculinity. They ask: Can I be a feeling person without being spineless? Can I welcome liberated women without losing my own freedom? Do I dare be friendly with gay men? Can I be a caring lover, husband, dad -- successful in the marketplace -- while still honoring my authentic maleness? This book gives men a chance to explore and dialogue with that emerging self. It is not just a book to read; it is a book to do. Interactive features allow men to face and heal boyhood wounds, recognize stored-up anger, deal with the strains of the workplace, and commit more deeply to relationships.
