From the Publisher
Man of Steel and Velvet describes in a simple and forthright way what it takes to be a man. At a time when few clear cut answers are given, the reader will find it refreshing and inspiring to see a sensible, understandable and workable guide for masculine fulfillment.
In learning what it means to be a man, the reader will also learn how to understand women. For many this will be a surprising discovery. The author discusses practical solutions to many of the difficult situations which commonly arise in marriage.
By carefully analyzing the needs of a woman, especially her needs in marriage, and correlating them with the masculine nature and temperament, the author comes up with an intriguing picture of a man with the combined traits of the firmness of steel and the gentleness of velvet. This is the kind of man who commands the admiration of his friends and the devotion and respect of his wife and children. Man of Steel and Velvet gives a clear picture of masculinity and the different traits that make a man manly. How this is achieved is a most enlightening study.
For the man who is approaching the age of marriage or for the man who is already experiencing the challenges this responsibility imposes, Man of Steel and Velvet is an invaluable guide to achieving harmony and success.
