    The author has a laudable aim in seeking to redefine masculinity in a way that doesn’t include violence, aggression, recklessness, etc., and instead to encourage men to be nurturing, compassionate, and courageous. However, the book disappoints; the author makes some misplaced comments on homosexuality, displays zero class consciousness (clearly writing from a bourgeois position), and plays into racist stereotypes as well. When it comes to understanding the impacts of gender on women this book is The author has a laudable aim in seeking to redefine masculinity in a way that doesn’t include violence, aggression, recklessness, etc., and instead to encourage men to be nurturing, compassionate, and courageous. However, the book disappoints; the author makes some misplaced comments on homosexuality, displays zero class consciousness (clearly writing from a bourgeois position), and plays into racist stereotypes as well. When it comes to understanding the impacts of gender on women this book is woeful. An important topic here is done a disservice.

    I started this book awhile ago and have yet to finish it (I got about half way through, finished the chapter titled "taking the glory out of war and unlearning bigotry"). It is an interesting and vital cultural critique on violent male behavior and its sources in our damaged society. I really want to get back to this book although it does spend a lot of time and space elaborating on something which to me is nearly self-evident. However, if I were not the choir this preaching, somewhat repetitive I started this book awhile ago and have yet to finish it (I got about half way through, finished the chapter titled "taking the glory out of war and unlearning bigotry").

I really want to get back to this book although it does spend a lot of time and space elaborating on something which to me is nearly self-evident. However, if I were not the choir this preaching, somewhat repetitive but replete with solid research and multi-pronged argument might very well be necessary. I will re-evaluate my rating if and when I get back into this book.

    I think the only review about this book on this site does it a real disservice. I thought it was excellent. Very well researched and very readable.
