Segell writes the poignant introductions to the essays while Ban Breathnach inserts her personal responses at the end of particularly provocative essays. At times she sounds like an interloper in a "boy's only" tree fort club, her comments sounding out of place within these private moments of male bonding. Yet she forces readers, men and women alike, to acknowledge the feminine within the male experience, a lofty goal that we tend to resist. Contributors include Sting, who talks about the difference between thrill seeking and risk taking in "Let Your Soul Be Your Rookie." Adventure writer Tim Cahill writes about "The Bravest Thing I Ever Did"--face his panic disorder as his vomited his way through an un-aired television interview. And Thomas Moore speaks to the ecstasy of melding spirituality and sexuality. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I found the format of this book extreamly enjoyable, each writer's honesty refreshing, and the resulting insites into the male condition in our socielty inspiring.
I am the mother of three small boys, and I desire greatly to help them develope both charater and spirtuality as they grow into men. This book is living proof that these charateristics are not only possible in the modern man, but a "main ingreadiant" of the male personality and thought process. I plan to ask all of my sons to read this book when they come of age.

I got so much out of it that the bias did not matter,A few stories at the end i just passed over ,even though it seemed like listening to someone's own experience ,there was nothing in reading it that hit home for this reader.Try it for yourself,The book put me in a good place and opened me up to deeper insights.A great book for the journey .
