Where have all the grownups gone? In answering that question with the same freewheeling erudition and intuitive brilliance that made Iron John a national bestseller, poet, storyteller and translator Robert Bly tells us that we live in a "sibling society, " in which adults have regressed into adolescence and adolescents refuse to grow up.

10 years ago in May 1997 this book came out, and you can see the Sibling Society all around us to day. With no one to look up to (just stop and look at who is in charge) We look for Mature Males and Females and all we get are brothers and sisters competing with each other, trying to out do one another. This book is a look into the American soul, take a peek if you dare.

If you want to know what Britney Spears, Columbine, and Jerry Springer have in common, BUY THIS BOOK. I have had so many questions about how our culture has changed so quickly and violently, and I was never satisfied by the books I have read. They may give a piece of the puzzle to me, but not a whole, comprehensive picture. But then I came across this masterpiece, and Bly, amazingly, is able to answer every question I have ever had as to why, at this time of peace and prosperity, our nation seems more impoverished (emotionally, mentally, spiritually) than ever. Bly is a prophet whose words need to be heard and heeded. It's a quick read but will keep you up at night for a long time afterward
