Format: Paperback
From this book we learn about the experiences of men grieving various types of losses and how different their reality may be from that of their partner. The masculine grieving style is described in eloquent, lyrical language and mirrors the experiences of many men who seek counseling and support in my bereavement groups. The author gives sound advice about how women can better understand and support men who grieve, while also honoring their own feelings. Additionally, this book points out how unfair it is for our society to raise young boys as protectors, providers, and thinking problem solvers and then expect them to suddenly become sensitive, expressive emotional experts in times of loss. This work is a reality check for women who grieve - a call to re-examine the level of our neediness for emotional support from the men in our lives. It vividly demonstrates how important it is for parents to help children understand and express their emotions appropriately and to realize that doing so makes them both courageous and authentically human.

As someone who loves to take care of people - espeically men, this book has been incredibly helpful. Men greive very differently than women, but still tend to look to women for help. This book is a MUST OWN for any woman who has a man who they love/take care of.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Honestly I think this is a helpful book in that after over 14 months I hadn't even cried hardly at all, and reading one of the stories in the book I cried for like a minute or two - so it was helpful inthat way for me.

But honestly I think this book is primarily for women and it really I think is helpful for women to understand men. It's a good book. But I don't think this book is that helpful for Men who are going through grief.

It's a good book, but it's more for helping women understand men, than helping men to heal, but for that it's an excellent book.
