Editorial Reviews

Review

"As a pioneer in the emerging men’s movement, Masters speaks in a clear, no-nonsense voice as he calls men to begin a new hero’s journey of self-discovery and redefinition in which anger and compassion coexist, where emotional literacy thrives, where innate raw power can be embraced without sacrificing vulnerability, and where shame isn’t channeled into aggression. The last section, almost a third of the book, is devoted to the topic of sex, including in-depth discussions of pornography, rape, and sexual acting-out. There is also a chapter devoted to gay men, making it clear that his discussion is not limited by preexisting gender ideas of any kind."
Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight


“THE classic handbook for men . . . To Be a Man calls out the ‘warrior’ to do battle inside, to find authentic masculine power, allowing truly intimate relationships with women, other men, and self.”
Bill Kauth, cofounder of The ManKind Project® and author of A Circle of Men and coauthor (with Zoe Alowan) of We Need Each Other
 
 “To Be A Man: Every man should read it as autobiography, every woman should read it as revelation, and our culture should embrace it as a healing balm.”
Harville Hendrix, PhD, author of Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples and coauthor (with Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD) of Making Marriage Simple

“In this essential book, Robert Augustus Masters challenges current ideas about what it means to be a man, and explores crucial gender issues that affect every man, boy, woman, and girl on our planet. By uncoupling anger from aggression, sexuality from rape and porn, and masculinity from brutality, Robert supports men and boys in reclaiming the sacredness, magnificence, and true power of healthy masculinity.”
Karla McLaren, author of The Language of Emotions and The Art of Empathy

“A masterpiece of transformational wisdom.”
Alan Clements, author of Instinct for Freedom and A Future to Believe In
 
“Masters’ insights populate every page of this compelling book, and offer creative ways of thinking about many of our era’s most complex and controversial issues, among them pornography; sexual violence; militarism and war; the effects of trauma on men’s psyches and identities; and much more.”
Jackson Katz, PhD, author of The Macho Paradox and Leading Men,  and creator of the award-winning films Tough Guise and Tough Guise 2
 
“A brilliant, compassionate, paradigm-exploding instruction manual for any man—or woman—on the planet. What a fearless and amazing book!”
Nancy Dreyfus, PsyD, author of Talk To Me Like I'm Someone You Love
