Can an angry man come to terms with the truth about his manhood, competence, worth, and limitations? Sociologists are saying that the modern man is angry, unsure of how to carry off the masculine role and are straining to live up to the masculine myth.
Some men are angry and they don't even know why.
These angry men are often unwilling to talk about their emotions and have locked themselves deep inside their own personal thoughts and feelings.
Does this sound familiar?
-A driver cuts in front of him or tailgates and he freaks, calling the driver all things awful.
-He is passed over for an expected promotion. The world ends.
-Spending the holidays with the in-laws is the worst part of his life
-You don't meet his domestic and romantic expectations.
Is there a furnace of anger burning inside the man in your life that is just waiting to explode or boil over into your life? Has it already started boiling over? Is it presently poisoning your relationship?
"The Angry Man" shows what happens when this deep rooted anger starts to ruin relationships, jobs, health and even life.
The authors state that some of the root problems are not having a father while growing up, unrealistic expectations of manhood, low self-worth, failure and role confusion.
Growing up without a father - shows how angry and hurt men are that they have not had a father in their lives. Men who were the most happy had a father who invested time in their son's lives.
Trying to Live up to a Myth - Does the man in your life think he is what he does, earns, experiences during sex.
Exposing the Roots of Mythical Masculinity - His anger may stem from his failure to live up to the cultural masculine imperatives: strength, success, financial security, sexual prowess, etc.
Anger Out of Bounds - explores anger stemming from selfishness.
When Anger Boils to the Surface - Shows how anger that boils to the surface poisons relationships.
