1.0 out of 5 stars The Whole Man Joke, April 9, 2002
This review is from: The Whole Man Program: Reinvigorating Your Body, Mind, and Spirit after 40 (Hardcover)
Buy this book and feel like an [fool]! I was hopeing for a book that would address male issues for those over 40. What I got was one man's collection of "urban fables" with instructions based on his unique, singular experience. I struggled through chapters 1 and 2, but the real kiss of death was chapter 3 (Why men feel ashamed of themselves and therefore do not take any interest in health or longevity). I'm ashamed because I'm not a hunter? I'm ashamed because I got a circumcision and didn't get a chance to resist?! Give me a break! I was going to give the book to my local library, but I don't think I want to be guilty of promulgating this kind of [stuff]. You want to be healthy over 40 each less junk, exercise regularly, find meaning in your job to insure your efforts make a difference somehow, try and stay connected with friends or make new ones, stay connected with your partner and be supportive and allow to be supported. There you go, saved you [$] (not including shipping and handling).
