    Being the mother of two teen-aged sons, I appreciate this insight into a different perspective on life -- that of a young man. I have conversed with male friends about the changing expectations of and by men, of which there are good aspects and the opposite unwelcome aspects. The poetry in the book, which I received through Goodreads Giveaway got me thinking... Men will always be men. I believe the root of some behaviour is primal or hormonal. Pound for pound the average man will be stronger than a Being the mother of two teen-aged sons, I appreciate this insight into a different perspective on life -- that of a young man. I have conversed with male friends about the changing expectations of and by men, of which there are good aspects and the opposite unwelcome aspects. The poetry in the book, which I received through Goodreads Giveaway got me thinking... Men will always be men. I believe the root of some behaviour is primal or hormonal. Pound for pound the average man will be stronger than a similarly sized woman. While the rationale for some male behaviour is biological, a large portion is societal. That brings society back to nature vs nurture. Both contribute in the formation of any human personality, and probably differ in ratio for each unique individual at different stages in life. Men experience the same emotions as women, but aren't allowed by society to express them the same way. The expectations society has for men are changing, which leaves many men confused as to what their role is. With so many machines and technology to make our lives easier, men aren't required for their brawn, to be the hunters and warriors of a more primitive human existence. Men can certainly learn to be less antagonistic and more honourable. I know men who have served time because they defended a woman or an animal by engaging physically with the man who was being abusive (i.e. they pulled the abusive individual away from the woman and punches were exchanged). The poem that resonated most with me was "The C Word". The essay I connected with most is "No Shoes". The illustration I liked most accompanied "Anything But Beautiful". I genuinely appreciate the thoughts and effort put into "To Have No Technique". It will be interesting to see how Martin's thoughts and poetry will change as he continues on his journey through life. :-)

    A beautiful book of poetry with beautiful meaning behind each piece. Also the art work inside stood out in a beautiful way. I do not have a single bad thing to say about this book. I won this book in a goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review
